Dallas Willard, on his impending death

Gary Moon wrote in his recent biography of Dallas Willard, Becoming Dallas Willard, about J.P. Moreland’s visit after it became clear Willard would not live for much longer. “Are you afraid of dying?”

Willard smiled as he responded, “No, J. P., I actually believe the things I’ve been teaching all these years.”

Moon reports that Dallas Willard spoke about joy for his own funeral: “It’s really important to understand how joy cuts through everything. It cuts through everything. And to anticipate that your moment of passage from this earth will be one of great joy.”
