    " This is, to me, the philosophical underpinning for Richard Foster's Celebration of Discipline which it seems more people are familiar with. I recommend it to anyone who might be tempted to view spiritual disciplines as an end in themselves, seduced into a new sort of religious elitism. Nothing could be further from the truth and Willard articulates beautifully and in depth, the reasons behind the practices. Much lighter reading (if Willard ever is) than Divine Consiracy. "

    " Challenging. Heady. Willard is a philosopher, so you will find all the reason and logic/arguments behind 'why' questions. 'Why' should we do the spiritual disciplines. He offers a 'theology of the disciplines', etc. Willard also offers a lot of great thoughts on other topics such as poverty & holiness, and how to create true & lasting change in culture, society, political & global structures, etc. But, if you want a practical, 'how-to' book on spiritual disciplines, this is not the book. Willard even says so himself, he puts in a plug for Richard Foster's 'Celebration of Discipline' for a practical 'how-to' guide. That's definitely high on my reading list right now. I'm almost salivating. But, Willard does offer a great understanding as to the reasons 'why' for the spiritual disciplines, and a call to their diligent practice. If I was a philosopher, I would probably have rated it a 4 star instead of 3. Just a little heady for my taste at times. "

    " Theology of how God uses spiritual disciplines to mature us in our walks. Very good chapter on Christianity and wealth. "

    " Seeing the disciplines as a yoke that makes the living of the spiritual life easy. "
