Description

Richard J. Foster’s Celebration of Discipline: The Path to Spiritual Growth is hailed by many as the best modern book on Christian spirituality with millions of copies sold since its original publication in 1978. In Celebration of Discipline, Foster explores the "classic Disciplines," or central spiritual practices, of the Christian faith to show how each of these areas contribute to a balanced spiritual life.  Foster, the bestselling author of several books (Prayer and Streams of Living Water) and intrachurch movement founder of Renovaré, helps motivate Christians everywhere to embark on a journey of prayer and spiritual growth.

    I read Foster's Celebration of Discipline several years ago. It is divided into three major movements of the Spirit which are further divided into 12 disciplines. Part one focuses on the inward disciplines (example - fasting). Part two is about the outward disciplines (example - service). The last part covers the corporate disciplines (example - confession). Although this book is praised by many as the most important contemporary book on Christian Spirituality (Christianity Today named it one of the top ten religious books of the twentieth century) and has sold more than a million copies, Foster's teachings certainly has critics with well-founded concerns. You will receive practical suggestions for everyday living in this book, but I suggest reading a historic, traditional, orthodox Christian viewpoint of Foster's book at the Apprising Ministries website.
  • Excellent resource for delving into the spiritual disciplines.

    So much wisdom about the practical and internal aspects of practicing spiritual disciplines while preventing them from being legalistic.
