Dallas Willard-rest in peace

I nearly missed this, but Dallas Willard died last month.

About two years I blogged through his The Great Omission.

He had a concern for spirituality and discipline in the Christian Life.  He shared some of my criticisms of Evangelical Christianity.  He thought people often saw its main concern as the selling of a kind of fire insurance: in other words, its goal was to avoid going to hell.  He saw the Bible as providing us with a much more positive vision of what faith and discipleship are about.

There is an appreciation here and here.
