The Divine Conspiracy has revolutionized how we think about the true meaning of discipleship. In this classic, one of the most brilliant Christian thinkers of our times and author of the acclaimed The Spirit of Disciplines, Dallas Willard, skillfully weaves together biblical teaching, popular culture, science, scholarship, and spiritual practice, revealing what it means to "apprentice" ourselves to Jesus. Using Jesus’s Sermon of the Mount as his foundation, Willard masterfully explores life-changing ways to experience and be guided by God on a daily basis, resulting in a more authentic and dynamic faith.

Praise For The Divine Conspiracy: Rediscovering Our Hidden Life In God…
— from the Foreword by Richard Foster, author of Celebration of Discipline
“This book belongs in the tradition of the great devotional classics . . . The comprehensiveness of his study, its accessibility, its fervor, its freshness of phrasing, and its command of Scripture should prompt Christians to give this book serious attention.”
— Christian Century
“With The Divine Conspiracy, Willard joins the line of a Kempis, Luther, Fenelon, Brother Lawrence, Zinzendorf, Wesley, and other master apprentices of Jesus . . . What distinguishes The Divine Conspiracy is an extraordinary combination of simplicity and depth . . . If you read only one book, make it this one.”
— Christianity Today
“I consider The Divine Conspiracy to be the most important book in the field of Christian spirituality written in my lifetime.”
— Richard J. Foster, author of Celebration of Discipline
“All of Dallas Willard’s books merit careful attention, but this goes to the heart of the matter. To be a disciple is to be a disciple of Jesus, living in his presence to learn from and become like him. Just as the disciples did in the Gospels.”
— Christianity Magazine
“A Christian classic that deserves to be mentioned in the same breath with Augustine’s Confessions and Brother Lawrence’s Practicing the Presence of God.”
— JP Moreland, author of Love Your God with All Your Mind
“Passionate insights . . . thoroughly argued.”
— Library Journal
“The Divine Conspiracy shaped an entire generation.”
— Scot McKnight, author of The Blue Parakeet
