Apologist Profile: Dr. Dallas Willard



Dallas Willard is a professor in the school of philosophy at the University of Southern California. He also publishes and lectures on the topic of Christianity. Willard, in my view, is one of the best Christian philosophers writing today. He has the ability to communicate the gospel message in a clear, logically sound manner that challenges the listener to consider the claims of Jesus Christ.
