by Richard J. Foster

Read the full text and watch a video of talk.

Celebration of Discipline opens with the line, “Superficiality is the curse of our age.” It rings as true today as it did in 1978. The twenty-first century though has brought with it new challenges—namely the rise of distraction and narcissism due to technological advances. In this his last major talk, presented in essay form in this twenty-page booklet, Richard Foster helps Christians maneuver around modern landmines on the road of becoming more like Jesus.

Richard J. Foster is founder, past president, and current team member of Renovaré. He studied at George Fox College and received a Doctor of Pastoral Theology (D.Th.P.) from Fuller Theological Seminary. He has served as a pastor, taught at universities and seminaries, and spoken worldwide on spiritual formation. Author of over 60 articles and six books, including Celebration of Discipline, hailed by many as the best modern book on Christian spirituality, Richard continues to write on the spiritual life.
