publication in 1978, Celebration of Discipline has 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 written on
Christian spirituality, Celebration of Discipline explores the classic
“disciplines,” or central spiritual practices, of the Christian faith.
Dividing the spiritual 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.
Foster provides a wealth of examples
demonstrating how the spiritual 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, often the most neglected of the
disciplines, is revealed as critically important, for it stands at the heart of
the way to Christ. Celebration of Discipline will help motivate people
everywhere to embark on a journey of prayer and spiritual growth. Download and start listening now!
