Perhaps most interesting and useful is Foster's chapter on the controversial Christian discipline of submission. According to Foster, submission does not demand self-hatred or loss of identity. Instead, it simply means growing secure in the conviction that "our happiness is not dependent on getting what we want" but on the fulfillment that naturally flows from love of one's neighbors. Such wise and encouraging suggestions have helped many readers to discard the idea that discipline is an onerous duty and to move toward a liberating and simpler idea of discipline--whose defining character, as Foster never forgets, is joy. --Michael Joseph Gross --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
From the discussions and studies, the book will help you to walk closer to God.
It's the kind of book that you only want to read a piece at a time, because there's so much so start doing with each chapter.
Richard Foster has served the Church and Christians well by writing this book, "Celebration of Discipline."
