This book weaves together Willard’s earlier work on discipleship in THE DIVINE CONSPIRACY and his work on spiritual formation in RENOVATION OF THE HEART. Discipleship and spiritual formation, he argues here, go hand in hand. “This book calls believers to restore what should be the heart of Christianity—being active disciples of Jesus Christ. In the school of life, we are apprentices of the Teacher whose brilliance encourages us to rise above traditional church understanding and embrace the true meaning of discipleship—an active, concrete, 24/7 life with Jesus.” (dwillard.org)
