The Great Omission - D. Willard
Last paragraph of Chapter One

“The greatest issue facing the world today, with all its heartbreaking needs, is whether those who … are identified as ‘Christians’ will become disciples—students, apprentices, practitioners—of Jesus Christ, steadily learning from him how to live the life of the Kingdom of the heavens into every corner of human existence. Will they break out of the Church—to be, without human force or violence, his mighty force for good on earth, drawing the churches after them toward the eternal purposes of God? And, on its own scale, there is no greater issue facing the individual human being.” (Dallas Willard, The Great Omission, Introduction)
