To celebrate the twentieth anniversary of the book that changed how we understand the Christian life, Dallas Willard’s classic work, is now available in paperback

The Divine Conspiracy is a timely and challenging call back to the true meaning of Christian discipleship. Dallas Willard gracefully weaves biblical teaching, popular culture, science, scholarship, and spiritual practice into a tour de force that shows the necessity of profound changes in how we view our lives and faith.

In an era when many Christians consider Jesus a beloved but remote savior, Willard argues compellingly for the relevance of God to every aspect of our existence. Masterfully capturing the central insights of Christ’s teachings in a fresh way for modern seekers, The Divine Conspiracy helps us discover a revolutionary way to experience God—by knowing him as a daily mentor who actively guides and teaches his apprentices.

Willard explores the true nature of the teachings of Jesus, who intended that his followers become his disciples, and taught that we have access now to the life we are only too eager to relegate to the hereafter. Calling us into a more authentic faith, Willard offers a practical plan by which we can daily interact with God in order to continue the work of becoming more like his Son. Willard challenges us to step aside from the politics and pieties of contemporary Christian practice and inspires us to reject the all too common lukewarm faith of our times by embracing the true meaning of Christian discipleship.

Praise For…

“Willard is a master at capturing the central insight of Jesus’ teachings. . . . Rarely have I found an author with so penetrating an intellect combined with so generous a spirit.” — from the Foreword by Richard Foster, author of Celebration of Discipline

“This book belongs in the tradition of the great devotional classics . . . The comprehensiveness of his study, its accessibility, its fervor, its freshness of phrasing, and its command of Scripture should prompt Christians to give this book serious attention.” — Christian Century

“With The Divine Conspiracy, Willard joins the line of a Kempis, Luther, Fenelon, Brother Lawrence, Zinzendorf, Wesley, and other master apprentices of Jesus . . . What distinguishes The Divine Conspiracy is an extraordinary combination of simplicity and depth . . . If you read only one book, make it this one.” — Christianity Today

“I consider The Divine Conspiracy to be the most important book in the field of Christian spirituality written in my lifetime.” — Richard J. Foster, author of Celebration of Discipline
