The Great Omission: Reclaiming Jesus’s Essential Teachings on Discipleship

by Dallas Willard

Hardcover, 2006




The last command Jesus gave the church before he ascended to heaven was the Great Commission, the call for Christians to 'make disciples of all the nations.' But Christians have responded by making 'Christians,' not 'disciples.' This, according to scholar and renowned Christian thinker Dallas Willard, has been the church's Great Omission.

of addressing them. Reading this book as a Pastor is challenging and exciting - things can not be the same again.

The book is slightly disjointed in places as it is a collection of lectures and articles but nonetheless is a very worthwhile, positive and helpful read.
