Celebration of Discipline

by Richard J. Foster

The desperate need today is not for a greater number of intelligent people, or gifted people, but for deep people.

Hailed by many as the best modern book on Christian spirituality, Celebration of Discipline explores the ”classic Disciplines,” or central spiritual practices, of the Christian faith. Along the way, Foster shows that it is only by and through these practices that the true path to spiritual growth can be found. Dividing the Disciplines into three movements of the Spirit, Foster shows how each of these areas contribute to a balanced spiritual life. The inward Disciplines of meditation, prayer, fasting, and study, offer avenues of personal examination and change. The outward Disciplines of simplicity, solitude, submission, and service, help prepare us to make the world a better place. The corporate Disciplines of confession, worship, guidance, and celebration, bring us nearer to one another and to God.

If everybody in the country could read—and heed—this book, what a difference it would make to the planet.

Foster has challenged us to see Christian faith … as a life of spiritual transformation.

The best modern book on Christian spirituality..... No other book apart from the Bible has been so helpful to me in the nurturing of my inward journey of prayer and spiritual growth.

This seminal work on the practice of spiritual disciplines is never outdated.
