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
Richard Foster has served the Church and Christians well by writing this book, "Celebration of Discipline."
Very helpful in motivating and instructing on how to incorporate spiritual discipline into one's life so that we can walk more deeply with Him.
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.
The book was highlighted in many different colors on about 2/3 of the book. I don't mind used, but that was a little too used for me.Published 4 days ago by Cindy

This is a once in a generation type of book that pierces the innermost part of our being calling us to immediate action and total surrender to a life at the feet of Jesus.Published 12 days ago by David Mojica

Richard Foster is a Quaker with open theist theology. So if you're reading this academically you may be ok, but if you actually want to grow there are many better books.Published 14 days ago by JLMcKen
