Logos Bookstores' 2014 Best Book in Spirituality 2014 Leadership Journal Best Books for Church Leaders (The Leader's Inner Life) A Special Award of Merit, from Byron Borger, Hearts and Minds Bookstore "Eternal Life Begins Now." This is the title of Dallas Willard's opening message at the February 2013 Dallas Willard Center "Knowing Christ Today" conference in Santa Barbara, California. The series of seven talks explores what it means to live well now in light of God's kingdom. In this seven-hour, two-disc video presentation, Willard reflects on the state of the university, the meaning of knowledge, the importance of spiritual disciplines and more. Three of the sessions are taught by John Ortberg, who also serves as a conversation partner with Willard after each session. In the final session they explore what it means for us to offer a blessing to one another. You will also find a rich gift of grace in these timely videos of Dallas Willard's final lectures.

Review:

"My soul grew reading this book. Or perhaps more precisely, my soul grew as this book read me." (Lee Eclov, Leadership Journal 2015 Book Awards, Winter 2015)

"Living in Christ's Presence is a superb discussion of the many issues surrounding the reality of life in the kingdom of God here and now. I recommend it highly." (Richard J. Foster, author of Celebration of Discipline, Streams of Living Water and Sanctuary of the Soul)

"I actually think the best moments with Dallas are in Q and A sessions where you can get that wisdom in kind of bite-sized chunks that all of us are able to access and absorb. So they opportunity to do that, to just sit in a chair with him and say 'Hey, Dallas,' and ask him those questions and see what happened in the moment, and he ll get this little sly glint in his eye, and then he ll just drop these statements on you that literally could not come from anybody else, partly because of his mind and partly because of his heart. "I've known Dallas for about 25 years, and he has impacted me like nobody else has. His writings, his book Spirit of the Disciplines―outside of the Bible has had the biggest impact on my life. And so the chance to do this conference together was really powerful. Then when he got sick and it was clear that barring a miracle he was not going to be on earth for a real long time, it took on a whole added dimension of substance. We actually thought about, just given his health, should we not do the conference? And Dallas said, 'Nope, I want to do it. There are things that need to be said, and this is the chance to say it.'" (John Ortberg, senior pastor of Menlo Park Presbyterian Church and author of Soul Keeping)

"When I finished the book, I experienced a joy as deep and wide as the love of God in Christ. How many books can you say that about? Thanks, Dallas Willard, for a life well lived." (Randy Harris, The Christian Chronicle, September 2014)

"Touching on many topics . . . Willard and Ortberg's collaboration here is devotional gift. It is also a compass for finding one's way through the shadows to a life lived in the kingdom with God. An essential for your library, liberally furnishing inspiration for pastors, teachers, and songwriters." (Andrea Hunter, Worship Leader Magazine, March/April 2014)

"Willard shares in his last book insights about the process of transforming a person into Christlikeness, the gift of stepping into the kingdom, the challenge to become a person of blessing, and more. Ortberg discusses the primacy of learning from Jesus how to live in the kingdom, the connection between the Trinity and community, the distinction between training and trying in regard to spiritual disciplines, and more. Their talks complement and build on each other." (Daniel Johnson, CBA Retailers + Resources, January 2014)
