Willard's main point with "Spirit of the Disciplines" is to expound the vital importance of the spiritual disciplines in Christian life. He also takes some time clarifying a variety of accepted misconceptions related to the disciplines. He walks through how application of individual disciplines, such as solitude, silence and prayer can be applied in our daily lives and how they are critical for the spiritual growth that are true believers should be striving for. I especially appreciated how he handles the discussion of wealth and poverty. While he doesn't preach "Prosperity Theology" he does argue against those that extol poverty as a virtue and belittle the rich. He makes good points about making the most out of whatever position God has placed you in.

Willard encourages sacrifice as well as enjoyment of lifes pleasures. A well rounded and very informative book.

Dallas Willard never fails to bring intelligence and heart to his writing. This book moves the law and legalism out of the way so that the disciple can practice the disciplines through a heart of love.
