Show Notes

Jim Wilder is our friend and mentor and one of the people we've learned a tremendous amount from over the years.  This book is life altering.  I encourage you to pick it up today.

Jim and John sharing in conversation about his new book.  We had a lot of fun talking, sharing and discussing the ideas.

Renovated: God, Dallas Willard, and the Church That Transforms

  • Jim's hope and dreams for the book
  • Why loving our enemies is the litmus test for our apprenticeship to Jesus
  • What is enemy mode?
  • What does it mean to have God speak to us?  And, what it doesn't mean.

The book proposes that 

1) Salvation is about attachment and uses the human attachment system to grow a new identity 

2) We can experience mutual mind with God 

3) Mutual mind without attachment will not change character

This conversation will also be released on our YouTube channel.
I'm hoping someone would want to list the topics and time stamps we discuss them on Youtube.  If you are interested please let me know.
