Dallas Willard spent his life making eternal living concrete for his friends. After his unexpected passing in 2013, the kaleidoscope of memories and the diversity of the lives he had touched could not be confined to one or even two memorial services, but three. It is this wide breadth of impact that inspired friends, family, colleagues, students, and leaders of the church to gather their reflections on this celebrated yet humble theologian and philosopher. Curated by Willard's long-time colleague and friend Gary Moon, this medley of images, snapshots and "Dallas-isms" seeks to move and motivate readers toward deeper experiences of God through the sharing of stories from the lives of the writers. Whether influenced by him as a family member, close friend, advisor, professor, philosopher, minister or reformer, contributors bring refreshing insight into not only his ideas and what shaped him, but also to his contagious theology of grace and joy.
Contributors include: Richard J. Foster, Jane Willard, J. P. Moreland, John Ortberg, James Bryan Smith, Alan Fadling, Ruth Haley Barton, and dozens more.
- Enlightenment for a new DW fan
I’m a latecomer to the Dallas Willard “fan” club. After devouring and savoring Divine Conspiracy I found myself craving anything and everything the man ever wrote or said. Much to my dismay I realized he died in 2013. I have a few of his books now and found this audiobook written by people who knew him and attended his memorial services. I found the book a window into Dallas Willard ‘s life and soul; the diverse perspectives shed much light on this “man for all seasons” and help me understand him much better. So many of the stories were humorous and very enjoyable. I’m so glad the authors/editors thought to publish this work. Any Dallas Willard fan will enjoy this audio book.
