Hailed by many as the best modern book on Christian spirituality, Celebration of Discipline has helped more than one million seekers discover a richer spiritual life infused with joy, peace, and a deeper understanding of God.
"Thought-provoking and challenging"
Written in the same warm, accessible style as Richard Foster's best-selling Celebration of Discipline, Freedom of Simplicity articulates a creative, more human style of living and points the way for Christians to make their lives "models of simplicity."
"Challenging and provoking"
First published in 1992, Prayer: Finding the Heart's True Home has become a classic on its eponymous subject. Awarded Christianity Today's Book of the Year award and the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association's Gold Medallion award, Prayer continues to receive widespread acclaim as one of the most thorough and insightful treatments of this central spiritual practice.
"Great Introduction to Prayer"
In the 20 years since its publication, Celebration of Discipline has helped over a million seekers discover a richer spiritual life infused with joy, peace, and a deeper understanding of God. Now you can explore the "classic Disciplines," or central spiritual practices, of the Christian faith and discover how only by and through these practices can the true path to spiritual growth be found. Richard J. Foster is a Quaker and the founder of Renovaré, an infrachurch movement committed to the renewal of the Church in all her multifaceted expressions.
"For those serious about walking with Jesus"
In this landmark work, Foster examines the foundations of Christian experience, growth, and renewal found in six historical movements: contemplative, holiness, charismatic, social justice, evangelical, and incarnational. Using profiles of biblical and modern characters who exemplify these traditions, he offers suggestions on how to integrate them into your daily life and challenges you to lead a more authentic Christian experience.
In Waking Up, Volume 3, Sounds True publisher and founder Tami Simon speaks with seven teachers about their personal understandings of spiritual awakening - how it takes place, what changes (and what doesn't), and how their experiences can inspire and inform our own realizations.
At the very heart of God is the passionate disposition to be in loving fellowship with you. From the human side of this equation it is meditative prayer that ushers us into this divine-human fellowship. Richard Foster, best-selling author and founder of Renovare, writes these words as one who has experienced what they describe. And in this new book he will beautifully guide you in this transformational way, that you might come to know deeper fellowship with God.
"Closer to God"
Richard Foster and Gayle Beebe, both experienced leaders in spiritual formation, introduce you to people from the past who have known God deeply. Each person helps you to grasp one of the seven primary paths to intimacy with God that have been developed throughout Christian history.
"Narrator is incorrect"
Richard J. Foster teaches that six dimensions of faith and practice, which he calls "streams of living water", are what define Christian tradition: "Contemplative", or prayer-filled life; the life of "Holiness", or the virtuous life; the "Charismatic", or Spirit-empowered life; the life of "Social Justice", or the compassionate life; the "Evangelical", or word-centered life; and finally the "Incarnational", or sacramental life.
"a wonderful, and honest book on prayer"
With this audio, you can begin to fill your longing by developing your capacity to receive and respond to God's love. Spiritual formation is the process through which one's inner self is opened to the work of the Holy Spirit, who forms us into the image of the Son. Here Richard Foster and Gayle Beebe, both experienced leaders in spiritual formation, introduce you to people from the past who have known God deeply.
When millionaire Jethro Dumont disappeared into the mystic fastness of Tibet, the world thought him lost forever.

Donning the emerald robes of a Tibetan monk, Dumont became The Green Lama, a relentless scourge of the Underworld. Aided by ordinary people from all walks of life, guided by the mystery woman known only as Magga, The Green Lama employs esoteric methods to conquer crime.
Motivated by worldly suffering, the Lama takes up the challenge of organized crime and subversive elements wherever he finds them.

Dedicating himself to the destruction of evil, Dumont dons the emerald robes of the fearsome Green Lama - a figure of mystery and high purpose. With his team of able assistants, the Lama journeys west - to Hollywood - to solve two criminal conspiracies that demand justice.
When a rogue conjuror commits an unsolvable crime, Jethro Dumont dons the emerald robes of the Green Lama, plunging into the arcane world of stage magic to solve The Case of the Mad Magi.
