Dallas Willard

“Those poor in spirit are called “blessed” by Jesus, not because they are in a meritorious condition, but because, precisely in spite of and in the midst of their ever so deplorable condition, the rule of the heavens has moved redemptively upon and through them by the grace of Christ.”

– The Divine Conspiracy

Dallas passed away today after a battle with cancer. The Divine Conspiracy was one of the more impacting books I’ve ever read, particularly on the topic of the life of Jesus.
