Perspective on the buzz

Author and philosopher Dallas Willard died May 8 at age 77, days after being diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. In the days following, many Christian leaders have reflected on his life, work, and faith:

  • John Ortberg writes, "Dallas' work, more than anyone I know in our day, is helping us understand more clearly the reality of Jesus' offer."
  • Richard Foster reflects on how Willard befriended him when he was a rookie pastor, teaching him to "live into the rhythms of the spirit."
  • At The Gospel Coalition, Tom Nelson observes, "Christ was real and always near to him."
  • Finally, Wesley Hill describes the transformative power of Willard's writing in "A Reader's Appreciation."
