Dallas Willard has died.

Dallas Willard gave the “Faith and Philosophy” lectures at North Park University in 1997.

He was a remarkable writer and lecturer;  he made complicated material accessible, and he showed how ancient wisdom is still wisdom today.

Willard wrote on Jesus, the Bible, and Christian tradition, but also on philosophy and especially Husserl.  I asked him if he felt like he had had two careers.  “No,” he said, “but I can see why it might look that way.”  In fact, Willard’s work brings those traditions together in a mutually helpful dialogue.

He passed beyond the veil on May 8, 2013.
