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, 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.
"Through his life and writings, Richard Foster has led many of us back to indispensable wisdom on how to live a Jesus kind of life. Celebration of Discipline has been a gift to the soul for forty years. It's worthy of celebration."
"Foster has 'found' the spiritual disciplines that the modern world stored away and forgot and has excitedly called us to celebrate them. They are the instruments of joy, the way into mature Christian spirituality and abundant life."
"If everybody in the country could read-and heed-this book, what a difference it would make to the planet; nay the cosmos."
