Book Reviews (by Kim Gentes)

In the past, I would post only book reviews pertinent to worship, music in the local church, or general Christian leadership and discipleship. Recently, I've been studying many more general topics as well, such as history, economics and scientific thought, some of which end up as reviews here as well.

The Divine Conspiracy: Rediscovering Our Hidden Life In God - Dallas Willard (1998)

When I began to read this book, I assumed that Richard Foster was simply being extravagant and indulgent in the forward- lining up this book with the writings of Wesley, Luther & Augustine. He was NOT! The treatment of the texts, in both grammatical and contextual examination (the centerpiece of systematic theology), is astounding. But what is most amazing is the incredibly common-sense attack he makes on application of the "kingdom among us", the "heavens" and the beatitudes. Even great writing can rarely change a person's beliefs- this book will! "Divine Conspiracy" will not only force you to examine your own prejudices on many texts, it will call you to action.

I have read this book through 4 times and am about to start reading it a fifth. I have also used this book twice to guide a study group in a home. Both times, people are changed by the experience. I can't recommend this book highly enough.

The absolute best book, outside the Bible, I've read! Really!
