The last command Jesus gave the church before he ascended to heaven was the Great Commission, the call for Christians to make disciples of all the nations.

But Christians have responded by making Christians, not disciples. This, according to brilliant scholar and renowned Christian thinker Dallas Willard, has been the church's Great Omission. Download and start listening now!

    " Willard has some great points, but the fact that the book's a collection of occasional pieces means he never gets into as much depth as I'd like (saying "I wish I had time to go into ____" just means you fill out your speech for the book, not that you keep it brief) and that some of the passages are repetitious. When he's on, he nails it, but this work seems more suited for fans of his, as it seems his other books explore these subjects (primarily spiritual formation) more deeply. "

    " The Great Omission is about Christian discipleship and the lack of it in American Christians. It is a collection of Willard's lectures and writings on the topic - this makes the chapters more self-contained, does involve some repetition, but also allows easy dipping in and out of the book. This made it easier to listen to as an audiobook as well (thank you Christianaudio). Willard's point is that Christian's are born into a life, conversion is not a one instant and done. He emphasizes the disciplines (especially silence and solitude), as he always does, and sustained work by the Christian (as he says grace is opposed to earning and not to effort). Accepting the format of a volume of lectures, my one complaint about Willard's excellent discussion of discipleship here is that it feels individualized and does not say much about the church. "

    " I have 3 or 4 books that are always on my nightstand that I reference and read throughout the year, sometimes throughout the week. The Great Omission will be joining those 3 or 4 old familiar friends. Amazing, life-shaking book! "

    " Very hard to read. Repetitive. Good point, but really, it's a single point. Poor editing. "
