Revered author Dallas Willard offers an effective alternative to the rationalising argumentation often employed by Christians when sharing their faith. Willard challenges readers to demonstrate Jesus' message through their own transformed lives - the most compellling argument that can be made! 256 pages, from Harper Collins.


The revered Christian author whose bestselling classics include The Divine Conspiracy and The Spirit of the Disciplines provides a new model for how we can present the Christian faith to others.


When Christians share their faith, they often appeal to reason, logic, and the truth of doctrine. But these tactics often are not effective. A better approach to spread Christ's word, Dallas Willard suggests, is to use the example of our own lives. To demonstrate Jesus's message, we must be transformed people living out a life reflective of Jesus himself, a life of love, humility, and gentleness.


This beautiful model of life-this allure of gentleness-Willard argues, is the foundation for making the most compelling argument for Christianity, one that will convince others that there is something special about Christianity and the Jesus we follow.
