Reviews - What do customers think about Revolution Of Character?
Outstanding Jan 19, 2007
Dallas Willard and Don Simpson have greatly improved my understanding of my spiritual development by clearly describing the aspects of a person's being: mind (thoughts and feelings), heart, will, body, and soul. With this understanding, I am much better equiped to answer the call to righteousness that revolutionizes my character.
Challenging One's Faith Jan 11, 2007
Easier to read than other books by Willard, this one lays out a clear path for Spiritual Transformation. The challenge for the reader is to walk the path- which will probably require several readings and study of the scripture references.
Excellent book for anyone wanting to live according to Christ's teaching Jan 11, 2007
This is classic Dallas Willard, one of the best authors for explaining in both philosophical and practical terms spiritual transformation through discipline. His teaching that our spiritual condition is a product of our daily choices and decisions, and the only way to change them is by following the teachings of Jesus, is both clear and challenging. He is the only author that I have read who discribes the spiritual disciplines in such a way that I felt sure that to learn them would truly change me at the deepest level and give me the best possible relationship with God. A great book !
A Concise, Helpful Introduction to Spiritual Transformation Jan 10, 2007
This is another important work containing Dallas Willard's thoughts, interpreted by Simpson, that makes more accessible the main themes of his larger book Renovation of the Heart. While reading 'Renovation' may be best for some, those who prefer a shorter work that captures the essence of Willard's ideas might do better to start with Revolution of Character. Both works provide a clear understanding of the process of spiritual transformation and give practical advice on how to open our lives to the transforming work of the grace of God through Jesus Christ. Highly Recommended.
