There is no way to contain my joy in getting to read more words from Dallas Willard. I am so thankful his daughter is putting together his notes and lectures. This latest book is called The Allure of Gentleness, and takes up the cause of living out the apologetic of Christianity rather than simply trying to engage in and win an argument.
Some early gems:
It is because in suffering for righteousness’s sake you know the reality of the kingdom of the heavens in your life. that reality comes into you, and you find that you are leading a supernatural, deathless life.
If you do not exhibit the presence of a life that is above this world, something that is coming into you and giving you joy, peace, and strength in a situation that looks very bad from outside, there isn’t going to be anything for people to ask about.
