Publisher's Summary

In The Divine Conspiracy, Dallas Willard gracefully weaves biblical teaching, popular culture, science, scholarship, and spiritual practice into a tour de force that shows the necessity of profound changes in how we view our lives and faith. In an era when many Christians consider Jesus a beloved but remote savior, Willard argues compellingly for the relevance of God to every aspect of our existence. Christians, Willard says, for the most part consider the primary function of Christianity to be admittance to heaven. But, as Willard clearly shows, a faith that guarantees a satisfactory afterlife, yet has absolutely no impact on life in the here and now, is nothing more than "consumer Christianity" and "bumper-sticker faith". Willard refutes this "fire escape" mentality and offers a practical plan by which we can become Christ-like. He challenges us to step aside from the politics and pieties of contemporary Christian practice and inspires us to reject the all too common lukewarm faith of our times by embracing the true meaning of Christian discipleship.

What the Critics Say

"Willard gives an eloquent reading of the difference between critical moral thinking and the discernment of moral truths. With a wise kind of warmth, he calls our attention to the pitfalls of intellectual and psychological approaches to God, and invites us to find the spiritual integrity we need to live Christ's teachings."

Great advice about your Christian walk

This book has same sobering advice regarding living out your Christian walk. Tough part is the narration is a little monotone, so it was hard for me to listen to.

A phenomenal must

Dallas Willard is true thinker, a lover of the gospel, and a loving embracer of the true. I am on my third listen in a row. In this age where religious debate is nearly absurd (the selfish gene or aqua buddha) The Divine Conspiracy points us to a great and serious goal of God, to form His image in us. I loved hearing the author read the book in person.
