Richard Foster’s Celebration of discipline

Richard Foster’s Celebration of Discipline is one of the most important books I’ve read. I keep going back to it, and each time it changes my life.

Its subtitle is instructive : ‘the path to spiritual growth’. I completely agree. The spiritual disciplines are the way to grow in Christian faith, to know God more intimately.  They are such a key part of discipleship, the bridge between theological knowledge and Christian life.

I’m going to try to write about each of the disciplines here to help me understand them better.
