Spirit of the Disciplines
This book is a theological reflection which invites the reader to a new understanding that sees salvation not only in terms of forgiveness of sins, but in the light of the total transformation of our lives. Dallas Willard presents a way of living that enables ordinary men and women to join with God and realize their highest aspirations of well-being and well-doing. The key to this self transformation resides in the practice of the spiritual disciplines. Willard explains why the disciplines work and how their practice affirms life to the fullest.
