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.
