Overview

As Christians, we know that we are new creations in Jesus. So we try to act differently, hoping this will make us more like Him. But changing our outward behavior doesn’t change our hearts. Only by God’s grace can we be transformed internally. Renovation of the Heart lays a biblical foundation for understanding what best-selling author Dallas Willard calls the “transformation of the spirit”—a divine process that “brings every element in our being, working from inside out, into harmony with the will of God.”

This fresh approach to spiritual growth explains the biblical reasons why Christians need to undergo change in six aspects of life: thought, feeling, will, body, social context, and soul. Willard also outlines a general pattern of transformation in each area, not as a sterile formula but as a practical process that you can follow without the guilt or perfectionism so many Christians wrestle with.

Don’t settle for complacency. Accept the challenge Renovation of the Heart offers to become an intentional apprentice of Jesus Christ, changing daily as you walk with Him.

This book is a fabulous tool if you're wanting to educate your mind about your soul and how it is different from your heart. Willard does an amazing job of talking to and engaging your intellect. This is a tough read and not for new/ beginning Christians. This boos IS KEY though to your spiritual transformation. Renovation of the Heart is a book you'll benefit from reading multiple times as you'll grab something new from the text each time. If you're nervous, GREAT, pick it up and start reading. You won't regret it.
I will recommend getting the college version or study guide to help you process if you find it intimidating.
