Dallas had a deep and inspired perspective about work, business, and the professions. This booklet brings together three of his more focused articles about work along with two articles by great thinkers of the past that inspired his ideas and were a standard part whenever he taught on the subject.
In The Divine Conspiracy, biblical teaching, popular culture, science, scholarship, and spiritual practice are weaved together to capture the central insights of Christ’s teachings in a fresh way and show the necessity of profound changes in how we view our lives and faith.

Books About Dallas Willard
Written from an explicitly Willardian perspective, Phenomenology discusses, assesses and defends many of Dallas's controversial interpretations of Husserl and the nature of phenomenology, all in Walter Hopp's uniquely clear, entertaining and friendly but pugnacious "take no prisoners" style.
