Areopagus Forum

A MODEL FOR CHRISTIAN MATURITY:

The Life and Legacy of Dallas Willard
A special Areopagus presentation by

Gary Moon

Christian psychologist, director of the Renovaré International Institute for Christian Spiritual Formation, and author of “Becoming Dallas Willard: The Formation of a Philosopher, Teacher, and Christ-Follower.”

 

Throughout his life Dallas Willard was an inspiration to many Christians and a personal mentor to many prominent pastors and scholars including John Ortberg, Richard Foster, and J. P. Moreland. As a result of these relationships and the books he wrote, Willard fundamentally altered the way many Christians understood and experienced wholistic disciplehship. All who knew him were impressed by his calm and confident demeanor, his wisdom, and his Christ-centered spirituality.

 

But Willard was not always a man who lived on a higher plane of reality, and his journey through life was not an easy one. As Gary Moon relates, Willard’s life deserves attention because he became a person who experienced authentic spiritual transformation in his life and character – and in the process became a true model for Christian maturity.
