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"
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.
