Publisher's Summary

Nathan Foster was just a child when his father's classic Celebration of Discipline brought the spiritual disciplines into the popular evangelical consciousness. More than thirty years later, Nathan made his own journey into the spiritual disciplines. As he sought day by day to develop habits that would enable him to live more like Jesus, he encountered problems both universal and unique. In this engaging narrative, he draws insights from saints of old to uncover fresh ways of living for the contemporary, postmodern Christian.
Through his successes, struggles, and failures, Foster invites listeners on a journey of freedom, pain, frustration, and ultimately joy as he learns to rise above selfish desires, laugh at his own failures, and fall in love with God. Those who have read Celebration of Discipline will find in Nathan's book creative new ways to practice the disciplines that have been so formative in their lives. Those who are new to the spiritual disciplines will find that developing a vital, interactive, conversational relationship with God is within their grasp. As a result, the holy habits of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control are truly possible for all. Includes chapter openings and a foreword from Richard J. Foster.

Great message, terrible recording

This book has many great lessons and examples for the spiritual lifestyle, but the recording was low quality and tinny. Also, I see the appeal to having the author read the book, but he is not the best reader and his inflection sometimes makes us lose words at the end of sentences.

Ordinary yet Extraordinary

I like books read by the author, I feel like I'm truly hearing his heart. The disciplines of the spiritual life with flesh and bones on them, I want to step into knowing Jesus better through the disciplines. Thank you.
