Philosopher and popular Christian author Dallas Willard has earned a reputation for both his insight into the human person and his love for spiritual formation. In Revolution of Character, a condensed and more accessible version of Willard’s Renovation of the Heart, Willard and co-author Don Simpson present their case for a new awakening in the understanding of the nature of both the human person and also the process of spiritual formation as necessary correctives to the spiritual apathy and imm ...more
As many have pointed out, this book is a more accessible version of Dallas Willard's Renovation of the Heart. In fact, Willard is cited as a co-author. This is an excellent book. Quite frankly I didn't really expect it to be this good. I've also read the student edition of RoH co-authored by R. Frazee and found this book to be much clearer. It go goes beyond making a case for the need for personal transformation to explaining how that change actually happens in the life of the individual. This w ...more

this book is a shorter version of Dallas Willard's Renovation of the Heart. It makes a great devotional that challenges all dimensions of our being - mental, emotional, physical, spiritual and social. its a great reminder that all is not lost in our desire to become totally abandoned to Christ.
Wow--another very important book, from what I've read so far! A super accessible version of Willard's very helpful book Renovation of the Heart. I read that, and so thought I wouldn't really be interested in this one. Au contrair! This book by Don Simpson offers me a way to go back and comprehend concepts that were grueling to digest in my first two read-throughs of that Renovation. I hope Simpson re-writes all Willard's works!

This book is re-write of Willard's "Renovation of the Heart". Many find the University of Southern California professor to be difficult to read. Here he teams up with Simpson to create a shorter version of "Renovation" that is much simpler to read.
To me this is a foundational book that every Christ follower should read. It dives into what it takes to transform a person's character into the character of Christ.
a book that you cannot just read.
You must interact with it to make
it work. a great resource for
your study time early morning
or late night. one that you want
to work through, not simply get through.
This is a great book, a kind of "cliff notes" for Renovation of the Heart. Dallas Willard has many useful things to say about Christian living.

This is an excellent book that explains how all Christians "should" be working on the transformation of their being to God's glory.
Bob Jackson
This is a simplified and very helpful version of Renovation of the Heart. I recommend it. This is serious and good stuff.
An amazing book on the spiritual growth of a Christian. Read it, it is so good.
