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.… (més)

    StephenBarkley: These books are quite complimentary. Same theme, different approaches.

An exploration of the Disciplines of the Christian life. Very good. ( )

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 presente edição comemora o aniversário de 30 anos de sua primeira publicação em 1978. Um clássico aclamado pela revista Christianity Today como um dos dez livros cristãos mais importantes do século XX. Desde seu lançamento, este livro ajudou milhões de pessoas a descobrirem a porta de entrada para uma vida espiritual rica, plena de contentamento, paz e profunda compreensão de Deus.

A Christian classic on spiritual growth with something for people of any faith or no faith at all if only to read the chapters on simplicity, solitude, and fasting. Great for 3-4 months of small group study or a daily read in the quiet of the morning. A highly significant reference book for me for years to come. ( )

To make it easier, I would just read Laura's review for this book. It nailed the essentials of the book better than I could ever write.
For my personal response I would say that the chapters on fasting, study, submission, service confession, and guidance were of the greatest interest to me. Both study and guidance were not what I thought they would be. I also enjoy how Foster balanced biblical teaching with practical advice grounded in historical works across the ages of Christianity. This is truly an ecumenical work. It also expanded my to read list. :-)
This is clearly a book that I will return to, and definitely a favorite. ( )

The celebration of each discipline in this book hands us a tool that can be useful in helping us to integrate our inner and outer lives.

I go through life as a transient on his way to eternity, made in the image of God but with that image debased, needing to be taught how to meditate, to worship, to think. - Donald Coggan

Superficiality is the curse of our age.  The doctrine of instant satisfaction is a primary spiritual problem.  The disparate need today is not for a greater number of intelligent people, or gifted propel, but for deep people.
Superficiality is the curse of our age.
