Noted Christian Philosopher Dallas Willard passes on -- a sampler from his work

It seems that, a week ago, Dallas Willard passed on, due to cancer. (CT announcement, here.)

HT, TruthBomb, a video sampler  -- a lecture on what skepticism is actually good for (starts with an excellent definition of truth):

 TB comments:
Philosopher Dallas Willard died May 8, 2013.  I gleamed much from his teachings.  He taught me that logical consistency is a significant factor of one's moral character.  Moreover, he shared wonderful insights in his work about what it means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ.  Finally, and most important of all, he taught me to see Jesus as a logician and "the smartest man who ever lived."
While I never had the opportunity to meet him, I am grateful for his ministry and life.  Welcome home Dr. Willard!

In the above video, Dr. Willard discusses belief in the age of skepticism and the usefulness and danger of doubt in our society.

You can see his books here.

J.P. Moreland reflects on the life of Dr. Willard here.

Food for thought from a man to be saluted for his contribution. END
