Richard Foster is an evangelical Quaker whose books and ministry have led millions of people closer to the heart of God. Foster’s Celebration of Discipline is one of the most comprehensive examinations of Christian spirituality ever written. Since its initial publication in 1978, Celebration of Discipline has had an overwhelming impact on individuals, churches and Christian leaders throughout the world. Foster followed this foundational work with Simplicity, a call to a compassionate life that was awarded with an EPCA Gold Medallion, and Prayer, an unmatched introduction to this most foundational spiritual discipline that has been a best-seller since the day of its release. More recently, Foster penned Streams of Living Water a book that introduces the diverse spiritualities that have sprung from the Christian faith and encourages Christians to draw upon these resources as they seek to live a faithful life.

In addition to his writing, Foster is also the founder of Renovare, an interdenominational renewal movement that calls people to invest themselves in spiritual exercises, the practice of their spiritual gifts and works of service. Moreover, he is a highly respected teacher who served as Professor of Theology at Friends University for many years and currently serves as Professor of Spiritual Formation at Azusa Pacific University.

If you have committed yourself to a life of discipleship, you will find Foster a trusted and essential guide.

Excerpt


In 1 Kings Chapter 19 we read how the prophet Elijah went to meet with God on Mount Horeb. There was an earthquake, fire and wind, but God chose to speak to Elijah in a whisper. So it is today that God often speaks when we slow ourselves down to listen to His voice. According to Richard Foster, listening is at the heart of meditative prayer and in Sanctuary of the Soul he explores this faith tradition, showing its biblical roots and sharing insights from Christian writers, of both recent and classical tradition. Foster's introduction will give you step-by-step help to begin this enriching prayer practice for yourself.

Excerpt


Prayer confronts us with great mysteries: Why is some prayer apparently unanswered? How can a finite person communicate with an infinite God? Isn't prayer merely psychological manipulation? As he guides you in understanding, experiencing, and practicing prayer in all its forms, Foster also helps you learn to be comfortable with its mysteries.

Simplicity is not merely a matter of having less stress and more leisure. It is rather an essential spiritual discipline that we must practice for the health of the soul. Twenty-five years after it first appeared, this updated edition of Richard Foster's classic work explores the foundation of this discipline, its fundamental importance in the Bible, and how it has been manifested and taught by God's saints throughout Christian history. This beautiful, moving manifesto on incorporating simplicity into our hectic lives still rings true---and is even more needed today.
