Dallas Willard's five monographs devoted to Christian spirituality constitute a unified body of work that together present a comprehensive account of the nature and means of spiritual formation in Christ. This paper approaches Willard’s corpus chronologically for the purpose of culling the central components of Willard's understanding of spiritual formation. This is not meant to be a review or summary of Willard’s writings, but rather an analytical study of Willard’s work and is an implicit call for further second-order scholarly reflection on the Willardian corpus.
