Publisher's Summary

The last command Jesus gave the church before he ascended to heaven was the Great Commission, the call for Christians to "make disciples of all the nations."But Christians have responded by making "Christians", not "disciples". This, according to brilliant scholar and renowned Christian thinker Dallas Willard, has been the church's Great Omission.

Would like it in print

I enjoyed listening to this book and feel it was beneficial for a better understanding of how to effect the great commission. He describes spiritual formation and its benefits, though more in theory with references to other sources on the disciplines. Basically, it helped me realize why I often just want to spend more time with Jesus and feel uneasy about evangelism the way I learned it 15 years ago.
The print version would be nice to make it easier to review and reference certain parts. In reality, I would have trouble getting though the whole book in print, though, so I enjoy listening even if I may not get as deep of an understanding. The audio version is very well done, so I think it depends on what you have more time for.

Am I Christian enough to make it to heaven?

I have always wondered that! Haven't you? Then there's the nagging question, what if one of my kids should be killed. Will I see them in eternity?

Many churchgoers just make the assumption
Just make the assumption that attending church and having gone forward once to except Christ as Savior is enough to get them there. If you own a home, but didn't take the time to open the envelope, read over the agreement, sign, Enclose a check, and mail the insurance agreement back to the insurance company, you'll have only yourself to blame if the house burns down the insurance carrier declines your claim.

A solid understanding of this book is more important than that! Get it! Read it! Do it! And get it into the hands of anybody you Love!
