About the Book

Dallas Willard, one of today’s most brilliant Christian thinkers and author of the acclaimed The Spirit of the Disciplines, now offers a timely and challenging call back to the true meaning of Christian discipleship. In an era when many Christians consider Jesus a beloved but remote savior, Willard argues for the relevance of God to every aspect of our existence.

The Divine Conspiracy teaches about a revolutionary way to experience God — by knowing him as an essential part of the here and now, rather than only as part of the hereafter. It explores the true nature of the teachings of Jesus, and calls us into a more authentic faith by offering a practical plan by which we can become more Christ-like. Willard inspires us to reject the all too common lukewarm faith of our times by embracing the true meaning of Christian discipleship.

Theologian Dallas Willard has long been an eloquent voice for the relevance of God in our daily lives. His groundbreaking books In Search of Guidance and The Spirit of the Disciplines forever changed the way thousands of Christians experience their faith. He is a professor at the University of Southern California’s School of Philosophy and has held visiting appointments at UCLA and the University of Colorado. He lives in Southern California.

“Willard is a master at capturing the central insight of Jesus’ teachings. . . . Rarely have I found an author with so penetrating an intellect combined with so generous a spirit.”

- from the Foreword by Richard Foster, author of Celebration of Discipline

Critical Praise

“Willard is a master at capturing the central insight of Jesus’ teachings. . . . Rarely have I found an author with so penetrating an intellect combined with so generous a spirit.” - from the Foreword by Richard Foster, author of Celebration of Discipline

“This book belongs in the tradition of the great devotional classics . . . The comprehensiveness of his study, its accessibility, its fervor, its freshness of phrasing, and its command of Scripture should prompt Christians to give this book serious attention.” - Christian Century

“With The Divine Conspiracy, Willard joins the line of a Kempis, Luther, Fenelon, Brother Lawrence, Zinzendorf, Wesley, and other master apprentices of Jesus . . . What distinguishes The Divine Conspiracy is an extraordinary combination of simplicity and depth . . . If you read only one book, make it this one.” - Christianity Today

“I consider The Divine Conspiracy to be the most important book in the field of Christian spirituality written in my lifetime.” - Richard J. Foster, author of Celebration of Discipline

“All of Dallas Willard’s books merit careful attention, but this goes to the heart of the matter. To be a disciple is to be a disciple of Jesus, living in his presence to learn from and become like him. Just as the disciples did in the Gospels.” - Christianity Magazine

“A Christian classic that deserves to be mentioned in the same breath with Augustine’s Confessions and Brother Lawrence’s Practicing the Presence of God.” - JP Moreland, author of Love Your God with All Your Mind

“Passionate insights . . . thoroughly argued.” - Library Journal

The Divine Conspiracy shaped an entire generation.” - Scot McKnight, author of The Blue Parakeet
