Dallas Willard Goes Home

Sad news for the rest of us:

Dallas Willard, a prominent philosopher on a “quiet quest to subvert nominal Christianity” (according to a 2006 CT profile), died today after losing a battle with cancer. He was 77. . . .

According to Gary Moon, executive director of the Dallas Willard Center at Westmont College, Willard died early Wednesday morning, but “awakened to a full experience of the reality of the Kingdom of the Heavens he described so beautifully. Fittingly, his last two words were, “‘Thank you.’”

  1. Apologetics 315 marked his passing also. Brian Auten linked to this very interesting talk he gave at Indiana University a number of years back. It well worth a listen.
