In a new book honoring the life of Dallas Willard (Eternal Living) James Bryan Smith relates the story of a time he asked Dallas about who was “right,” Arminians or Calvinists?

“Neither.” He went on to say that both were right, and both were wrong, and he did not fit into either camp.

The more I read reflections from people who knew him best, the more I know why I have grown to admire him so deeply.

    1. Biblical balance confirms reality, not our opinions. I am so grateful. If we apply such perspectives to other things, we would see more transformation, less political and religious idolatry, and the Spirit’s impact on people of every form of affection as we live out the life of Christ amidst unbelievers.
