Celebration of Discipline: The Path to Spiritual Growth
This timeless classic has helped well over a million people discover a richer spiritual life infused with joy, peace and a deeper understanding of God. Celebration of Discipline explores the ‘classic disciplines’ of Christian faith: the inward disciplines of meditation, prayer, fasting, and study; the outward disciplines of simplicity, solitude, submission and service and the corporate disciplines of confession, worship, guidance and celebration.

"Like a child exploring the attic of an old house on a rainy day, discovering a trunk full of treasure and then calling all his brothers and sisters to share the find, Richard Foster has 'found' the spiritual disciplines that the modern world stored away and forgot ... the instruments of joy, the way into mature Christian spirituality and abundant life."
