A respected philosopher and renowned writer, Willard is considered one of the most brilliant Christian thinkers of the past century. Through analysis and application of Jesus' parables, Willard offers revolutionary insights and practical applications for living with Christ.

"Dallas Willard's work has consistently challenged Christians to grasp the full breadth of
the gospel message, and his insights into Jesus' parables are no exception," said

Drawn from Willard's unpublished writings and his popular, in-depth teaching series on the

stories hold transformative messages for living out the Kingdom of God in our ever-changing

"[Jesus'] teaching style provided people the opportunity to take responsibility for
opening the door to their heart, seeking the truth and hunting for even more truth,"
Willard writes. "Teaching in parables helped him give people a vision of how life in the
kingdom of God fit into their everyday, ordinary life."

The Scandal of the Kingdom demystifies Jesus' teachings and aligns with Zondervan's mission
to equip the global church with biblical resources that glorify Christ.
