A fundamental mistake of the conservative side of the American church today, and much of the Western church, is that it takes as its basic goal to get as many people as possible ready to die and go to heaven. It aims to get people into heaven rather than get heaven into people.” — Dallas Willard in Renovation of the Heart

Statements like this represent why everyone in church leadership, including me, should read the last chapter of this book at least once a year.
