Review of ETERNAL LIVING: REFLECTIONS ON DALLAS WILLARD'S TEACHINGS ON FAITH AND FORMATION

I've loved and respected Dallas Willard as a theologian and philosopher for many years, so I was greatly saddened when he passed away in 2013. As a follower of Jesus, there are few writers who have articulated the faith in a way that makes perfect sense to me as Willard did. Eternal Living is a collection of essays by people who knew Dallas Willard and whose lives he greatly impacted with his teachings.

The book is structured around the roles that Willard played in public and in the lives of the people he knew and loved. Probably the most moving of the essays are the ones by his friends and family. It's easy to see why reading his books impacted my life, but it's interesting to see how he impacted those who were closest to him.

Willard had an incredible impact on people, and that's why a book like this was so likely to come about. If you read and loved the writings of Dallas Willard, this is a great book on the impact he had.
