“A spiritual defense of the proposition that faith and reason are not contradictory.” (Peter L. Berger, Director, Institute on Culture, Religion and World Affairs, Boston University)
“This is clear, lucid thinking about what matters most, as is desperately needed today. Only Dallas Willard could have written this, but I don’t know anyone who doesn’t need to read it.” (John Ortberg, Pastor, Menlo Park Presbyterian Church and author of Faith & Doubt)
“In prose that is both decisive and austere...this volume will engage readers who are willing to follow Willard on his self-assured way, and trust him as a guide.” (Publishers Weekly)
“Willard is always fascinating reading. [In Knowing Christ Today] he cares not only about God’s people being rooted in solid theology and thought, but also in Christ’s apprentices actually living out the life of the Spirit.” (Baptist Standard)
About the Author
Dallas Willard was a professor at the University of Southern California's School of Philosophy until his death in 2013. His groundbreaking books The Divine Conspiracy, The Great Omission, Knowing Christ Today, Hearing God, The Spirit of the Disciplines, Renovation of the Heart, and The Divine Conspiracy Continued forever changed the way thousands of Christians experience their faith.

His treatment of why the bodily resurrection of Jesus is the best explanation for the publicly available evidence was too short, though. On this one should probably further read Michael Licona, Gary Habermas, N T Wright, or William Lane Craig.
Lastly, the overarching theme that constantly emphasizes knowledge as the basis for the correct faith is the gem in this book. I highly highly recommend this book to anyone who is seriously committed seeking, questioning, and testing the truth.
"To know him in your world now is to live interactively with him right where you are in your daily activities. This is the spiritual life in Christ. He is, in fact, your contemporary, and he is now about his business of moving humanity along toward its destiny in this amazing universe. You don't want to miss out on being a part - your part - of that great project. You want to be sure to take your life into his life, and in that way to find your life to be "eternal" as God intended.
There is a real danger that you will miss out on this involvement with eternity and thereby miss the entire point of your existence. Eternity is now in progress. Silently it moves along. But it will not run over you. You have to really want it - deep down - or you will miss it. That is why Jesus said to seek it more than anything else."
I am thankful to author about this book.
He navigates these and shows the plausibility of the truth that Jesus came to teach us how to live life in its fullest sense. A life like his - a life of love. I've read this book multiple times and find myself hearing Jesus speak to me through it every time about life, the church and reality. It's a great book, but dive into it prepared to think deeply.
