About Celebration of Discipline – The Book
Since its publication in 1978, Celebration of Disciplinehas helped millions of seekers discover a richer spiritual life infused with joy, peace, and a deeper understanding of God.
Hailed by many as the best modern book on Christian spirituality and described by Christianity Todayas one of the ten best books of the 20thcentury, Celebration of Disciplineexplores the classic “Disciplines”, or central spiritual practices, of the Christian faith. Along the way, Richard Foster shows that is only by and through these practices that we can find a true path to spiritual growth.
Dividing the disciplines into three movements of the spirit, Foster shows how each movement contributes to a balanced spiritual life. The inward Disciplines of meditation, prayer, fasting and study offer avenues for personal examination and change. The outward Disciplines of simplicity, solitude, submission, and service prepare us to help make the world a better place. The corporate Disciplines of confession, worship, guidance and celebration bring us nearer to one another and to God.
In the book, Foster provides a wealth of examples demonstrating how the Disciplines can become part of our daily activities – and how they can help us shed our superficial habits and “bring the abundance of God into our lives.” Celebration of Disciplinewill help Christians everywhere to embark on a journey of prayer and spiritual growth.
