Believers long for personal purity and power to live as our hearts tell us we should. But how does God change us? Willard reminds us that we can be like Christ if we follow his style of life: solitude and silence, prayer, simple and sacrificial living, meditation on God's Word, and service to others. The practice of these disciplines is how God guides us into a constant interaction with his kingdom. 'Few books have challenged me like this one. I would urge every serious minded Christian to read it...at your own risk.'---Bill Hybels, author of Honest to God?. Slightly Imperfect.
