      Every Christian, pastor, leader, teacher, human interested in Jesus and following him should read this book. It should be standard reading in The Church, seminaries, etc.

      I don't know if it's just the stage of seeking that I personally am in right now, but anything I read or listen to by Dallas Willard is packed full of "Oh!" or "Yes!" or "Wow." Definitely a lot to chew on. I was born and raised in the Christian religion, even spent a semester in seminary, so I am relatively knowledgable of biblical and theological truth. So while Willard does bring a lot of new truth to me, much of it I kinda knew but never really understood. "Renovation of the Heart" has given me a vision of what it means to follow Jesus with all my heart, mind, strength etc. His understandings and guidance are relevant and practical; he is not one to give "steps" that will produce the same "results"--God doesn't, so why should Dallas Willard? But Willard combines his insight into history, philosophy through the ages, the human condition, cultural issues today, and most of all his long apprenticeship with Jesus to share with us what this Christian (Christlike) thing is supposed to be like. And he inspires me to trust Jesus (really!) along the way for the means.

      I would recommend studying more of Willard's books, as well as exploring the articles and audio resources at his website.

      An excellent book; I don't yet like e-book format.

      The author does a fine job of outlining how to grow in Christ and become a fully-functioning disciple of Jesus.

      His logic is excellent, his progression through the book understandable, and he displays a sensible, caring approach to people.
