Product Description:

At a time when popular atheism books are talking about the irrationality of believing in God, Willard makes a rigorous intellectual case for why it makes sense to believe in God and in Jesus, the Son.

Review:

"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

"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

"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

"Dallas Willard focuses like a laser beam on the issue of moral knowledge as a legitimate source for understanding reality and applying it to daily life. It is a must read."--Richard Foster

"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"

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2009. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 213 x 142 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. What does it mean to know God today? Philosopher and Christian leader, Dallas Willard takes the reader on an intellectual journey showing how our culture has downgraded spiritual knowledge to something less than real, making many believers begin to doubt their faith or opt out of the culture altogether. Willard corrects this trend by explaining the case for seeing what the Bible teaches as true knowledge and so provides a basis for how Christians can most effectively engage their cultures. Here Willard tackles the roles of science, reason, and faith in the Christian life and how believers should engage the church, work, and the entertainment culture we live in. In the end, much of what Jesus taught us is a new way to think and act; here Willard updates Jesus s message for our day and age. Bookseller Inventory # AAS9780060882440
