Richard J. Foster’s Celebration of Discipline: The Path to Spiritual Growth is hailed by many as the best modern book on Christian spirituality with millions of copies sold since its original publication in 1978. In Celebration of Discipline, Foster explores the "classic Disciplines," or central spiritual practices, of the Christian faith to show how each of these areas contribute to a balanced spiritual life. Foster, the bestselling author of several books (Prayer and Streams of Living Water) and intrachurch movement founder of Renovaré, helps motivate Christians everywhere to embark on a journey of prayer and spiritual growth.
Introduces key figures from Christian history Combines academic story and practical experience Offers spiritual application in each chapter Each chapter is sub-divided into smaller sections for ideal devotions Experiencing the love of God gives us a taste of his goodness, but often those moments are fleeting. Our awareness and understanding fade while our longing to experience him again increases. Here you can begin to fill that longing by developing your capacity to receive and respond to God's love. Spiritual formation is the process through which one's inner self is opened to the work of the Holy Spirit, who forms us into the image of the Son. Here Richard Foster and Gayle Beebe, both experienced leaders in spiritual formation, introduce you to people from the past who have known God deeply. Each person helps you to grasp one of the seven primary paths to intimacy with God that have been developed throughout Christian history. Written in short segments, each surrounding a key figure, Longing for God is ideal devotional reading.

Amid confusion and turmoil, unearth the hope in Scripture Ecclesiastes can be a difficult book. Women struggle with the writer's laments on the meaninglessness of life, the pointlessness of work, and the lack of connection from generation to generation. They may think there are too many other books offering spiritual encouragement to waste time on this skeptical book of Scripture. But is that the whole picture? Sue Edwards says there's more here than meets the eye. In fact, if studied properly, Ecclesiastes can lead women to an optimistic outlook on life. It can help women abandon bad habits, hang-ups, and foolish perspectives that keep them in bondage to everything that threatens to destroy the ultimate joy Jesus wants for them. All they need are the proper interpretive tools for this valuable book. Edwards walks women through Ecclesiastes, revealing nuggets of wisdom about life and God, as well as dire warnings on what to avoid. Any woman who wants to know God and live according to His design, from new believers to veterans of the faith, will discover anew one of the richest sources of wisdom ever written.
Fasting. Solitude. Contemplative prayer. Lectio divina. Have you heard about these practices and wanted to try them? Have you wandered from one practice to another not sure quite what to do? Are you overwhelmed by all the to-dos of your spiritual life? We have good desires—for a more intimate prayer life, perhaps, or deeper insight from God's Word—but we don't know how to get there. So we give up our pursuit, tired from wandering aimlessly, and end up feeling guilty and more distant from God instead of closer. In the Spiritual Disciplines Handbook Adele Calhoun gives us directions for our journey toward intimacy with Christ. While the word discipline may make us want to run and hide, the author shows how desires and discipline work together to lead us to the transformation we're longing for—the transformation only Christ can bring. Instead of just giving information about spiritual disciplines, this Handbook is full of practical, accessible guidance that helps you actually do them. Mothers, fathers, plumbers, nurses, students—we're all on a journey. And spiritual disciplines are for all of us who desire to know Christ deeply and be like him. Here is direction for our desire, leading us to the ultimate destination: more of Christ himself.
