9780060693336: The Divine Conspiracy: Rediscovering Our Hidden Life in God

A major new book that ‘rediscovers our hidden life in God’ from one of the most exciting authors emerging from North America. ‘A masterpiece and a wonder – the book I have been searching for all my life’ from the foreword by Richard Foster.

At the end of the twentieth Century a new expression of Christian Spirituality is forming which is focused on biblical truth but is less concerned with denominational labels. Drawing its support from both Catholics and Protestants, writers such as Richard Foster and Henri Nouwen have been the most popular. Now comes a major new addition: Dallas Willard.

The Divine Conspiracy is a moving and penetrating exploration of human existance and human nature. It considers in a fresh way the abiding truths of judgement and grace and what he memorably calls ‘theologies of sin management’. All this is set against a backdrop of modern materialism.

‘His stories charm. His examples teach,’ says Richard Foster, here is ‘a soul satisfying banquet,’ which he places alongside the writings of John Wesley, Martin Luther, Teresa of Avila ‘and perhaps even Thomas Aquinas and Augustine of Hippo.’ This is a book for the next millennium.

Product Description:

First published in 1998, The Divine Conspiracy captured the attention of Christians across the world, by offering a timely and challenging call back to the true meaning of Christian discipleship.

Gracefully weaving biblical teaching, popular culture, science and scholarship together, Dallas Willard refuted the view that Christianity is solely about gaining admittance to heaven when we die, and taught that, as disciples, we have access now to the life of the kingdom.

Equally relevant today as it was on publication, The Divine Conspiracy challenges us to step aside from the pieties of contemporary Christian practice and offers instead a practical plan by which we can become Christ-like. Truly, it has earned its reputation as a modern Christian classic.

Review:

Dallas Willard, an acclaimed theologian and professor of philosophy at the University of Southern California, fulfils the longing of many Christians who want to live as true disciples of Christ rather than distant dabblers. Likewise, he scoffs at consumer Christians who are simply banking on admittance to heaven as their payoff for attending church. Or worse still, those who use Christianity to advance their political agendas rather than their spiritual ones. But this is not a scolding book. Rather, Willard devotes his efforts to discussing specific and inspiring ways to develop a discipleship to Jesus--not as an act of sacrifice or even one of spiritual luxury--instead, as everyday people committed to the teachings of Christ. "The really good news for Christians is that Jesus is now taking students in the master class of life", writes Willard. "So the message of and about him is specifically a gospel for our life now, not just for dying. It is about living now as his apprentices in kingdom living, not just as consumers of his merits." -- Gail Hudson
