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.

Ronnie Floyd has seen his church grow tremendously as a result of his biblical teachings on spiritual disciplines such as prayer and fasting. As the conservative, evangelical counterpart to Richard Foster'sThe Celebration of Discipline,Floyd's book explores nine essential spiritual disciplines of the Christian life. With chapters such as "He's God, Not Just Your Buddy," "Confess and Be Filled," and "Every Choice is a God Choice,"Life on Fireshows believers how living a radically committed, passionate, and purposeful life in Christ is both possible and fulfilling.
The neoliberal theologians, who intend to repaint Christianity, say they are reacting to the errors and abuses within the church, against the false promises of the Prosperity theology and the modern Pharisees, who use legalism as a means of oppression and control. The truth, however, is that they incur in the same mistakes of them. Those of the Prosperity Gospel or those of the postmodern church philosophy lead the ministry according to peoples desire, not according to Gods interests or the true spiritual need of people. The Prosperity theology adapted to a greedy society that sees Jesus only as the multiplier of loaves and fishes and a free healer; therefore, it gave them what they wanted. The postmodern Christians changed the speech and emphasis, but reproduced the same pattern of ministry. When we compare them, both groups are alike they all use pragmatism as foundation for ministry, thus, their teachings are unbiblical, their practice unethical and its results, devastating to the Christian faith. The new painters take advantage of the mistakes of some groups of the evangelicalism, with this, they find the opportunity to throw out the baby with the dirty bathwater they throw away the true Gospel along with the errors of the church. Such opportunism is clearly detected in their effort to establish a stereotype to represent historic Christianity as a group of ignorant and devoid-of-love Fundamentalist fanatics, while they pose as open-minded good-boy- preachers, and love givers with no trace of prejudice. By opposing legalism, these men went to the other extreme they became libertines. Thus, their offered antidote became worse than the poison itself. The neoliberal theologians came not to bring healing to the churchs problems, rather, they aggravated it. They are opportunists who are creating a neo-Christianity under the perspectives of this new postmodern world.
