Introduction

Richard J. Foster's purpose of Celebration of Discipline: The Path to Spiritual

Growth, is to show people for control, work, and operate their faith. He reveals that each

person has an immense obligation to God to process and develop important

relationship with Him. Whether someone is seeking to be a spiritual entity or simply

and ignorance of the classical spiritual disciplines. Foster positions his book as a "how

to" guide for spiritual disciplines, and a developing of spiritual character. Upon

completion of the book, the reader will be quipped with the tools to empower himself to

defend His Mighty Word.
