NavPress to release “Renovation of the Heart: 20th Anniversary Edition” by Dallas Willard

Carol Stream, IL (September 8, 2021) — NavPress (@navpress) will release Renovation of the Heart: Putting on the Character of Christ – 20th Anniversary Edition by Dallas Willard on November 9. Twenty years after its original release, Renovation of the Heart continues to have an impact on readers by focusing on how character is formed and what it means to follow Jesus—by drawing near and letting ourselves be shaped into the eternal people of God. Along with reflections on the book’s impact over its life from family, friends, and admirers of the author, the commemorative anniversary edition also includes a transcribed, never-before-published interview with Dallas Willard, a Scripture index, a foreword from John Mark Comer, and an afterword from Natasha Sistrunk Robinson.

Dallas Willard (1935–2013) was an ordained Southern Baptist minister, an associate professor at the University of Southern California, and the author of several books on spiritual formation.
