I borrowed this book from the Toronto Public Library as an e-book using the Libby app. A friend recommended it, and since it was available, I set aside any therapy book to read it. I expect I’ll buy it one day and read it again, and again, and again.

A couple of pastors whose sermons I listen to regularly reference Dallas Willard, and this is the first book of his I’ve ever read. It is long, and I’m sure there are things in it that I missed and will get the next time I read it.

Using the Sermon on the Mount, or The Discourse on the Hill as he calls it, Willard talks about living lives of faithfulness to Christ's teaching and example, and what it means in this life and world, and the life and world to come. His insights are nothing short of brilliant and practical, after reading it, I consider this a must-read for anyone who is following the way of Jesus.

I will read it again. ( )

Dallas Willard's Theology in a NutsHell.

First in importance is the Gospel of the Kingdom: the Life and teaching of Jesus. Good!

He doesn't dwell on the atonement doctrine. He more or less ignores the various atonement theories and gives it little play.

He pretty much ignores the violent, vengeful, jealous, petty, angry, low end anthropomorphic god inconveniently portrayed in parts of the Old Testament.

He speaks of Consumer Christianity and Vampire Christians. They don't take the teachings of Christ seriously and play around the edges. Vampire Christian is an interesting term - those who focus only on the blood sacrifice for their sin but pay no attention to Jesus’ life and teachings.

He uses the term Kingdom of the Heavens, where God dwells and his will gets done. Dallas seems shy about using the translation where Jesus says "The Kingdom of God is in you." He prefers "among you". I believe this fits his metaphysical system better -- our immersion in God more than his immersion in us.

He ignores Hell because he says there is one universe, implying there is no Hell universe. Simply put, everyone survives death and goes to Heaven, their character unchanged. Dying doesn't make you automagically perfect.(He added a qualifier on pg 302, TDC: God will let everyone into Heaven who can stand it. Does this suggest non existence of personality for those who can't stand it?} Willard suggests that evil people are placed farther away from God’s presence in Heaven. He uses the term "The fires of Heaven", so some of Heaven isn't a pleasant place for those that don't take what Jesus taught seriously.

As for theosis, despite some of Paul's teaching, I'm not clear on Willard's belief about divinization continuing after death, because he asks, "What if death only forever fixes us as the kind of person we are at death?" Willard asks a question but doesn't explain his opinion on God's command to be perfect as God is perfect, and if that command continues on in Heaven until perfection is attained. SCB ( )

About all I can say is, "WOW!"

Never before have I got less than half-way through an audio book and said to myself "I have got to get a dead tree version of this for future reference"

I got this from a used book sale at the local library and based on the title I had a completely different idea of what this book was about. What I got was a deep edifying look at life as a disciple of Christ in the 21st century.

I "had" to stop reading this several times because it was very challenging that it "made" me feel like I'm not a very good Christian.

I ended up with 4.5 rather than 5 stars because I think he may have gone off the rails at the end with his discussion of the life after death ( )

O impacto do cristianismo tem sofrido um enfraquecimento devido à irrelevância prática da efetiva obediência a Cristo. Assim também a fé tem sido desconsiderada pelo cristão no processo de desenvolvimento do caráter individual.

A long, sometimes complex and overall very thought-provoking book. The theme is understanding the Kingdom of God, with us now. Readers are encouraged to take Jesus seriously, and the first few chapters enlarge on the Sermon on the Mount, with an entire chapter devoted to the Beatitudes.

I only read a few pages each day, with some breaks, so it took me a long time to finish; if I was tired, I found it quite difficult to read. Yet the overall feel is both encouraging and challenging, and the final chapter - on what we might expect after leaving our earthly bodies behind - one of the best I have read on the topic.

A book I hope to read again before too long, and one which I would recommend to anyone interested in knowing more about the Christian life.
