No hi ha cap discussió a Converses sobre aquesta obra.
I'm certain this book has been recommended on this channel before. However this is my first experience with reading it personally. The way this book is written and the real rich deep insight that it brings to each subject that it covers is very unique. It's not a quick read however with each passing chapter and subject I've found myself either challenged to integrate new spiritual disciplines in my own life. While Also given a greater insight on how to practice current spiritual disciplines I've had for many years.
I read the 1978 version, a printed copy I own. It was highlighted quite a bit from the first time I read it, and like several books I’ve read this year, I think this one will be added to my 'repeat' list - I think it’s important for me to read this again, and again. These disciplines are well explained. I added fasting into my habit two weeks again when i read that chapter, and already I’ve found it to be a deeply meaningful experience. If you’re looking to refresh your Christian faith, read this book and make a deliberate effort to practice one of the discipline Foster writes about. I’m won’t be disappointed.

DISCIPLINAS ESPIRITUAIS: PORTA DE ENTRADA PARA A LIBERDADE Poucos livros sobre espiritualidade combinam verdadeira originalidade com integridade intelectual. Entretanto, foi exatamente essa a combinação que Richard Foster conseguiu produzir. Impregnado pelos clássicos devocionais, o autor apresenta-nos um estudo cuidadoso que será apreciado ainda por muito tempo.
Classificando as disciplinas em três movimentos do Espírito Santo, o autor mostra como cada uma delas contribui para uma vida espiritual equilibrada. As disciplinas interiores levam os famintos de Deus a uma transformação genuína. As disciplinas exteriores são um reflexo das prioridades do Reino de Deus em seus filhos. As disciplinas comunitárias lembram-nos de que é na comunhão entre os cristãos que nos aproximamos mais de Deus.
A tad heavy in places, but overall a very inspiring and encouraging read. The apparent oxymoron in the title is the theme of the book: that by willingly submitting to a variety of spiritual disciplines - from solitude to corporate worship - we grow closer to God, more at peace, and more in harmony with who we are supposed to be.
While I didn't agree with every word, much of this book resonated strongly. There's a good balance of Scriptural example, personal anecdote and very gentle direct teaching. The author is not at all authoritarian, and his advice comes in the form of suggestion rather than commands. In those of the 'disciplines' he sees as corporate, he sets out important guidelines, including complete acceptance and non-judgementalism.

A newly repackaged and updated 40th anniversary edition of the timeless guide that has helped numerous seekers discover a richer spiritual life infused with joy, peace, and a deeper understanding of God, updated with a new introduction by the author and a new section: "Entering the Great Conversation about the Growth of the Soul." 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. Foster provides a wealth of examples demonstrating how these 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." He offers crucial new insights on simplicity, demonstrating how the biblical view of simplicity, properly understood and applied, brings joy and balance to our inward and outward lives and "sets us free to enjoy the provision of God as a gift that can be shared with others." The discussion of celebration, often the most neglected of the Disciplines, shows its critical importance, for it stands at the heart of the way to Christ. Celebration of Discipline will help Christians everywhere to embark on a journey of prayer and spiritual growth.
