In the twenty years since its publication, Celebration of Discipline has helped over a million seekers discover a richer spiritual life infused with joy, peace, and a deeper understanding of God. Hailed by many as the best modern work on Christian spirituality, Celebration of Discipline explores the "classic Disciplines," or central spiritual practices, of the Christian faith. Along the way, Foster shows that it is only by and through these practices that the true path to spiritual growth can be found. Dividing the Disciplines into three movements of the Spirit, Foster shows how each of these areas contributes to a balanced spiritual life. The inward Disciplines of meditation, prayer, fasting, and study offer avenues of personal examination and change. The outward Disciplines of simplicity, solitude, submission, and service help prepare us to make the world a better place. The corporate Disciplines of confession, worship, guidance, and celebration bring us nearer to one another and to God.Foster provides a wealth of examples demonstrating how these Disciplines can become part of our daily activities -- and how they can help us shed our superficial habits and "bring the abundance of God into our lives." The discussion of celebration, often the most neglected of the Disciplines, shows its critical importance -- for it stands at the heart of the way to Christ. Celebration of Discipline will help motivate Christians everywhere to embark on a journey of prayer and spiritual growth.… (mer)

A tad heavy in places, but overall a very inspiring and encouraging read. The apparent oxymoron in the title is the theme of the book: that by willingly submitting to a variety of spiritual disciplines - from solitude to corporate worship - we grow closer to God, more at peace, and more in harmony with who we are supposed to be.

While I didn't agree with every word, much of this book resonated strongly. There's a good balance of Scriptural example, personal anecdote and very gentle direct teaching. The author is not at all authoritarian, and his advice comes in the form of suggestion rather than commands. In those of the 'disciplines' he sees as corporate, he sets out important guidelines, including complete acceptance and non-judgementalism.

Definitely recommended.

As someone who didn't grow up a Christian, his practical guide of how to use a discipline was extremely helpful. The chapters on meditation and prayer were especially meaningful to me. However, there were several parts that were just plain rambling. Some sections could have even been cut. Still a good book though. ( )

Classificando as disciplinas em três movimentos do Espírito Santo, o autor mostra como cada uma delas contribui para uma vida espiritual equilibrada. As disciplinas interiores levam os famintos de Deus a uma transformação genuína. As disciplinas exteriores comunitárias lembram-nos de que é na comunhão com os cristãos que nos aproximamos mais de Deus.

check whether hardback or paperback. Should it be shelved as a Spiritual Classic?

Arguably the most established contemporary spiritual classic by our most profound living religious writer. 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.

The book 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.

Superficiality is the curse of our age.  The doctrine of instant satisfaction is a primary spiritual problem.  The disparate need today is not for a greater number of intelligent people, or gifted propel, but for deep people.
