First Time Visitors

Dallas Willard’s website was created in 2000 when he realized it was a way to give people around the world access to his articles and recordings for free. While Dallas is no longer with us on this earth, the legacy he leaves behind as a friend, philosopher and reformer of the church continues to change lives today.

How to use our

Free Resources

The generous contributions of the Dallas Willard Ministries community allow us offer the resources on this site as a way of continuing to make Dallas’s life-changing teaching freely available to as many people as possible. Please use our Search feature to find topics you would like to study, or browse our Resources section for something that sparks your interest. You'll find free articles, audio, video, short clips for use in classroom and church settings, and even some philosophy course syllabi. We also offer a Speakers Bureau to connect you with teachers who walked closely with Dallas in his Philosophy and Spiritual Formation work and are expanding on his ideas in their own teaching and writing. 

We hope that this will be a place where you can find answers to your questions, including what Dallas called The Four Great Questions of Life:
1. What is Reality?
2. Who is well-off? (What is Blessedness? The Good Life?)
3. Who is a really good person?
4. How does one become a really good person?

Be ready to take notes as you listen to the teaching. You may find it helpful to download the summaries of Dallas's definitions, key concepts and diagrams.

What is

Dallas Willard Ministries

One of the questions Dallas often asked was if anyone knew of a church or organization that claimed to “teach people to do what Jesus said.” In partnership with a network of Dallas’s friends, family, colleagues, ministry partners and students, DWM seeks to teach people to do what Jesus said by offering resources for spiritual formation and illuminating what apprenticeship to Jesus Christ means within all the dimensions of human existence; to form the whole person so that the nature of Christ becomes the natural expression of our souls, bodies, and spirits throughout our daily lives.
