Review

“I know of no more important voice on spiritual truth in our day than that of Dallas Willard. To be able to receive fresh words from him along with Gary Black on the reality of the kingdom in our midst is a priceless gift to every follower of Jesus.” (John Ortberg, author of Who Is This Man?)

“I consider The Divine Conspiracy to be the most important book in the field of Christian spirituality written in my lifetime. In The Divine Conspiracy Continued Dallas Willard and Gary Black Jr. expand and enrich the themes that moved us so deeply.” (Richard J. Foster, author of Celebration of Discipline)

“The name ‘Dallas Willard’ is one you hear a lot in our house. He’s somewhere between a family member and a saint to us, as we’ve been so deeply, totally shaped by his words and ideas. I’m so thankful for this beautiful book.” (Shauna Niequist, author of Bread & Wine)

“I will return to [this book’s] teachings again and again. May the Kingdom come!” (Joseph Maciariello, The Peter F. Drucker and Masatoshi Ito Graduate School of Management, Claremont Graduate University)

“For those of us who desire to influence the culture in a distinctively Christian way, this is must reading.” (JP Moreland, author of The Kingdom Triangle)

“The Divine Conspiracy shaped an entire generation. Now Willard and Black have turned their attention to leaders becoming Christ-like disciples instead of institutionalized church members . . . reshaping our thinking at an even wider and deeper level.” (Scot McKnight, Professor of New Testament, Northern Seminary)

“For every follower of Christ who seeks to be a light in and through every vocational and professional arena of contemporary life. Willard and Black tell us all how we can live truly significant lives in God’s Kingdom—now.” (Bob Buford, author of Halftime and Drucker & Me)

“Willard and Black offer leaders a hopeful vision that steers the wobbly structures of this world onto the road of love, justice, and truth.” (Richard Swenson, M.D., author of Margin)

“Willard and Black have given us a prophetic writing, so bold that if embraced and embodied might just produce a Christian community that actually is ‘salt and light’ to a world in desperate need of it!” (Keith J. Matthews, Azusa Pacific University)

“Good, new, surprising, and challenging ideas at every turn.” (Robert F. Cochran, Jr., Pepperdine University School of Law)

“A fantastic book … a grand masterpiece for how to pursue and embrace personal transformation in order to be God’s transforming agents in the world. These pages are filled with the great themes that call us to pursue and embrace the with-God life that is life indeed.” (Gayle Beebe, President, Westmont College)

“Helps us know better how leaders can mobilize as disciples of Christ to renew truth and justice within the modern world. Don’t miss this book.” (Greg Forster, author of Joy for the World)

“Dallas once said ‘True social activists are those who live as apprentices of Jesus in their ordinary relationships.’ While many try to change society by laws, Willard and Black illustrate that changing society requires leaders, in every area of life, to live a Christ-like life.” (Ihab Beblawi, M.D.)

“An invaluable resource that can help pastors enter more fully into their congregation’s world and discover together the wisdom of Jesus and the way to real life.” (Mike Lueken, coauthor of Renovation of the Church)

“Divine Conspiracy, [Willard’s] most famous study, showed how a kingdom theology oriented Christians toward such a spiritual formation process of transformation into Christlikeness. . . . The Divine Conspiracy Continued takes his divine conspiracy theory into the public realm, [specifically] into the realm of leadership and influence.” (--Scot McKnight, Jesus Creed)

From the Back Cover

Dallas Willard's bestselling book The Divine Conspiracy revolutionized how we understand Christian discipleship. Jesus is not a remote savior, waiting for us in heaven after we die, Willard taught, but a leader and teacher to whom we apprentice ourselves to fulfill what Jesus had in mind when he declared that the "kingdom of God has come." In The Divine Conspiracy Continued, Willard and theologian Gary Black Jr. lay out the next stage in God's plan as this generation's disciples enter into positions of leadership and transform the world from the inside out. Christians are not called to protect themselves from the world but to step into the world to lead and serve, and in doing so, bring the kingdom of God to earth.

This particular book should be required reading and re-reading for every Christ follower.
Freda
The call to, and instructions for this type of interactive discipleship was the subject of most of Dallas previous work.

While the title for this book is appropriate, it is not only a continuation of Willard’s work in <i>The Divine Conspiracy</i>, but it is an extension of all of his works. As one who has read and re-read Willard’s previous books for years, I always found myself fascinated with the summary implications he tended to sketch toward the end of his books. Particularly in the final chapter of <i>The Spirit of the Disciplines</i>, titled “The Disciplines and the Power Structures of This World,” Willard intriguingly used broadly descriptive language to portray how disciples of Jesus in all walks of life would affect the entire world for good. Whereas that chapter was the brief, general description of how that would happen, this book is the detail that I and many readers of Willard’s previous work have been longing for.

Some readers who expect another “spiritual formation” book similar to Willard’s previous work may find themselves initially disappointed. Even though it is thoroughly consistent with Dallas’ previous writings, it is also very different. However, the book should be very appropriately be found on the shelves of readers of spiritual formation classics, because it is the most thorough, inspiring, and thought-provoking explanation yet available on how true Christian spiritual formation is always, inevitably for the sake of others. “If there is to be a next stage to the so-called spiritual formation movement, this must be it.” (Kindle loc. 711)

Following Willard’s death, when I first heard that this book was to be released and had been co-authored with Gary Black, Jr., I was initially skeptical.

Dissappointed. I am a layperson who's life trajectory was seriously altered by Dallas Willard's epic book, "The Divine Conspiracy". If that book was the "Hallelujah Chorus"....what I would have loved to see next was something extremely accessible ...the "Jesus Loves Me" or even the "Happy Birthday" version of his work. This book assumes the top-down model. (Leaders, Pastors, Professionals...etc) are going to be agent to lead the rest of us to the preferred future. I'm not confident that model is going to prevail. It is the model that has got us where we are now, and keeps us from advancing, or takes us in the wrong direction. This book co-opts the radical message of Dallas Willard, (and Jesus for that matter) back into the institutional model. The realm of changing the grass roots through the trickle down of the elite. I think when Jesus talked about servant leadership....he meant that the janitor might be the leader...not that the elite were going to (as is commonly seen) pretend to be a servant. I think it's going to happen through the grass roots and the individual. There is a lot of good content in the book...but I'm pretty sure it's playing to the wrong audience.... the professional clergy.

I'm still working on this book and taking it slowly. I have read virtually all of Dallas' books and always thought he had a very important ministry, this book drives that point home in no uncertain terms. This is the ball hit out of the park.

I think that Dallas, and many other important Christian scholars, would agree that the Christian gospels consists of Gods 3 step plan for human transformation.

Step 1 - a person believes - a person comes to believe in God, that God is good, that God sent Jesus to help us and finds faith in their heart. They are saved, possibly baptized, and are re-born. Step 1 =s the gospel preached in many churches today - you profess faith, you are saved, you're going to heaven when you die - not hell. In the meantime you should read the bible and watch a lot of TBN. (we've learned about it and decided to play )

Step 2 - a person loves - because of the power of Gods love in us we begin to trust in Jesus more and more and eventually choose to become his disciples. As his students we learn to live within that constant interaction with God/Jesus/ the Holy Spirit - and as a result our spiritual formation, our reliance on the Zoe ,the disciplines and the "with God life", we become vessels that can more accurately reflect Gods grace, light. love and care for others, - we are being transformed into Christ-likeness. The call to, and instructions for this type of interactive discipleship was the subject of most of Dallas previous work. (Hearing from God, Spirit of the Disciplines, Divine Conspiracy, Renovation of the Heart ) God is forming our character with our consent and by our request.

Wow, there’s a novel thought! Let’s teach pastors to focus on guiding their church members to develop the character of Christ rather than them majoring in Christian entertainment or the marketing of religious goods and services. Then we release these disciples into the broken educational, professional, business and legal systems of our world and allow them to subvert these systems by modeling biblical morality and working for the common good. That’s a very radical idea! Hmmm…I seem to have read something like this in that little black holy book they gave us when we graduated from Seminary back in the 70s!

I picked up “The Divine Conspiracy Continued” and devoured all 300 pages of it in one sitting! Dallas and Gary combine their talents to lay the theological underpinnings for a radical ecclesiology for the 21st century. As theological educators we would do well to take heed!
