Reviews

"Willard discusses the experience of discipleship.... These themes are woven throughout... from a man who knew what kingdom living meant, and was himself a doubt-lifting testimony to the rightness of a life of faith. Those who miss Willard's presence and teaching will likely take pleasure in Allure."--The Englewood Review of Books The Englewood Review of Books
"As an adult I discovered Dallas Willard. Unfailingly gentle and respectful, he transformed the apologetics of my generation as many of us 'laid down our swords and shields.'"--Eugene Peterson, translator of The Message
"Dallas Willard was a true Master. Who else combined such profundity with such clarity and simplicity? Here, he addresses an issue that is both timely and urgent for Christian advocacy today. But it is also a genuine hallmark of his own gentle and humble character as a man and thinker."--Os Guinness, author Fool's Talk: Recovering the Art of Christian Persuasion
"Dallas Willard's understanding of apologetics is revolutionary. It is at once more intellectually rigorous and yet more attainable and more humble and more tied to character than anything I have seen on the subject. What he describes is what Jesus actually did."--John Ortberg, senior pastor of Menlo Park Presbyterian Church and author of Soul Keeping
"Erudite and respectable. Willard's very humility is disarming. The Allure of Gentleness powerfully models what it's arguing for."--World
"It was Willard's habit to take an issue and cast it in a light that no one had ever thought of before; he does this here with key apologetical issues, and places apologetics against the backdrop of pastoral care. This is essential reading."--JP Moreland, author of The God Question
"Trust Dallas to give us apologetics for everyone in the manner of Jesus: desiring to serve not convince; discarding defensiveness and intellectual one-upping; respecting others as honest inquirers; answering questions we've secretly wondered about."--Jan Johnson, author of Renovation of the Heart in Daily Practice and Abundant Simplicity
