Knowing Christ Today: Why We Can Trust Spiritual Knowledge

I’ve always had a special appreciation for this book, because in it, Willard flexes his philosophical muscles in ways that none of his other books for Christian audiences do.  In this volume, Willard tackles the complex problem of how we are to understand “human knowledge” in light of our Christian discipleship. Here, Willard was concerned “with the trivialization of faith apart from knowledge and with the disastrous effects of a repositioning of faith in Jesus Christ, and of life as his students, outside the category of knowledge.” (from the book’s intro)

  1. The two most influential for me were Renovation of the Heart and The Divine Conspiracy. Both have shaped my ministry as well as the trajectory of my personal life (I am in my current doctoral program in large part due to the change in thinking those two books caused in my life).
    Have also read Spirit of the Disciplines, Hearing God and listened to many lectures and talks.
