Review

“It was Willard’s habit to take an issue and cast it in a light that no one had ever thought of before; he does this here with key apologetical issues, and places apologetics against the backdrop of pastoral care. This is essential reading.” (JP Moreland, author of The God Question)

“As an adult I discovered Dallas Willard. Unfailingly gentle and respectful, he transformed the apologetics of my generation as many of us ‘laid down our swords and shields.’” (Eugene Peterson, translator of The Message)

“Dallas Willard was a true Master. Who else combined such profundity with such clarity and simplicity? Here, he addresses an issue that is both timely and urgent for Christian advocacy today. But it is also a genuine hallmark of his own gentle and humble character as a man and thinker.” (Os Guinness, author Fool's Talk: Recovering the Art of Christian Persuasion)

“Dallas Willard’s understanding of apologetics is revolutionary. It is at once more intellectually rigorous and yet more attainable and more humble and more tied to character than anything I have seen on the subject. What he describes is what Jesus actually did.” (John Ortberg, senior pastor of Menlo Park Presbyterian Church and author of Soul Keeping)

“Following in the tradition of C.S. Lewis, Willard advocates for truth, born on the wings of grace, and does so in the manner of a fellow pilgrim, keen to listen and to share.” (Stan Mattson, founder and director of the C. S. Lewis Foundation)

“Classic Willard: the gifted Christian philosopher answering hard questions—the questions so many people have about God, hell, the problem of evil, the nature of freedom, and the wonder of Jesus—in an accessible style and with a gentle spirit.” (Chris Hall, Director of Academic Spiritual Formation, Eastern University)

“Trust Dallas to give us apologetics for everyone in the manner of Jesus: desiring to serve not convince; discarding defensiveness and intellectual one-upping; respecting others as honest inquirers; answering questions we’ve secretly wondered about.” (Jan Johnson, author of Renovation of the Heart in Daily Practice and Abundant Simplicity)

“Willard discusses the experience of discipleship…. These themes are woven throughout… from a man who knew what kingdom living meant, and was himself a doubt-lifting testimony to the rightness of a life of faith. Those who miss Willard’s presence and teaching will likely take pleasure in Allure.” (The Englewood Review of BooksThe Englewood Review of Books)

“Erudite and respectable. Willard’s very humility is disarming. The Allure of Gentleness powerfully models what it’s arguing for.” (World)

“Helps people wrestle with common doubts and answer some of the hard questions.” (Christian Library Journal) --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback
We started with "The Baby Book" by Dr. Sears, then tried, "The No-Cry Sleep Solution" and then "The Secrets of the Baby Whisperer." We were really at our wits' end. The major issue wasn't actually that our baby wasn't sleeping through, but that she was having a really hard time napping and she was crying like crazy every bedtime. We were trying not to let her cry but she was totally inconsolable, screaming right in our arms! We would be driving her in desperation to get her to go to sleep and sometimes she would still scream. It was heartbreaking.

Finally I got really desperate for a solution to my poor baby's anguish and looked online to see whether anyone in the sleep world was actually a PSYCHOLOGIST who specialized in sleep. Lo and behold, Jodi Mindell. She is truly an expert. Long story short, my baby now LOVES her crib. If we forget to put her down when it's time, she looks at us and says "Nigh night." She has no more negative associations with sleeping and she's a GREAT sleeper. 12-hour nights, plus usually 2 90-minute naps during the day at 13 months old. It took about 3 nights for bedtime to work (the longest she cried during that time was 20 minutes, which was already less than she cried when we'd tried to hold her or rock her to sleep!) and about 2 weeks or so for naptimes to get in gear.

The three hallmarks of Mindell's method are:
1. Reliable scheduling. For about a month our naptimes and bedtimes (and waking times) were literally to-the-minute. It worked. It actually even worked for me. I'm pregnant and I was able to set my own internal clock to take an afternoon nap when my baby does!

2. Routine, routine, routine. Bedtime and naptimes in our house now have an exact routine that is the same every single day.

I think I have read every book under the sun from Weisbluth's Healthy Sleep Habits Happy Child (way too militant) to Elizabeth Pantley's No Cry Sleep Solution (way too vague). Nothing really seemed to fit our needs. My daughter has always been a bad sleeper, usually up every 1-2 hours all night long. I consider myself an AP mom, we used to cosleep and breastfeed on demand. None of us were getting enough sleep and we were all miserable. I was very anti cry-it-out until finding this book. Yes, it does mean allowing your child to cry but it also recommends going in every 5 minutes to briefly comfort and reassure your child that she's not been abandonded. We started when she was about 9 months old and within 3 nights, my daughter was happily going to sleep in her crib for her first sleep stretch without so much as a peep. She did, however, still wake up throughout the night. Dr. Mindell says that 80% of kids will start going back to sleep on their own throughout the night within a couple weeks. Unfortunately, my daughter was in the 20% who don't. We would just bring her into bed with us once she woke up. After five months of this, we finally got up the nerve to sleep train for all her night wakings. The first two nights were pretty rough but things have been glorious since. Last night was the fourth night, she only woke up once and easily went back to sleep. I feel like a new woman and my daughter seems like a new kid. We're all much better rested.

I know most parents don't go into parenthood thinking they're going to let their child cry-it-out in order to get them to sleep on their own. My daughter is only 5 months now and I bought this book because my husband and I were trying to figure out a way to teach her to soothe herself to sleep and, in turn, hopefully be able to sleep longer stretches at night. She has yet to go longer than 3 hours at night, but I'd bet most of that is because she is still exclusively breastfed and under 6 months of age.

I'll put it this way: it was very difficult having to listen to our little girl cry in her crib while we did checks (ours were every 10-15 minutes). However, she was at least textbook...meaning, she cried exactly the amount of time Dr. Mindell said in her book. Day 1 was 40 minutes. Day 2 was about an hour. Day 3 was 30 minutes. Day 4 was the WORST at almost 2 hours long and I actually quit the method altogether. I couldn't take it anymore and picked up the baby and soothed her to sleep myself.

I would not be reviewing this book now that I was planning to quit the method altogether after that horrific 4th night except for the fact that I can put my baby down now and she'll go off to sleep. I don't know if it's the method that worked or what. But, I was planning on the 5th night to nurse baby to sleep as I did every time before sleep training. She fussed at the breast after eating, hadn't fallen asleep, so I just put her in her crib expecting her to cry. She didn't. I'm guessing it has something to do with the training as that's the only thing different in our routines.

Just this past Monday I decided to try the Mindell method for naps. No naps prior to this were in her crib. Now, all naps are in her crib and the most she'll do is fuss.

I loved reading this book. Mindell's approach seemed so sensible! I loved the idea that you only had to let your baby cry ONE time per night, at bedtime (as opposed to every time he woke all night). One time a night didn't seem too awful. And she promised that babies would cry 45 minutes the first night, 1 hour the second and 20 minutes the third.

Well, it's night TEN, and my baby is still crying for an HOUR every night. I have followed her "basic bedtime method" TO THE LETTER, I am totally consistent every night, and I am just about to give up. She has no website, no place where I can go to ask questions or try to get some advice. I'm just adrift out at sea with nothing but the book to refer back to.

I will say again that I love the idea of this book, but it hasn't worked at all for me.
