Customer Reviews for HarperOne Celebration of Discipline Study Guide

HarperOne Celebration of Discipline Study Guide

Richard J. Foster provides a series of brief, incisive essays that: expand the discussion begun in Celebration of Discipline, focus and clarify key issues, and encourage a fuller understanding and practice of the spiritual disciplines.

Each essay is followed by Scripture passages to enhance our appreciation of the disciplines in the light of the Bible, and study questions that facilitate careful reading of the original text and stimulate thought and discussion. Foster has also provided an annotated bibliography of readings that suggest directions for further study.

This is a wonderful book. It makes one re-evaluate their relationship with the Father and provides tools in which will edify growth.

I love this study guide! I'm using it in a discipleship group. It gives you the perfect amount of daily scripture reading for developing the discipline of a quiet time in the word each day. We talk about each chapter/ discipline from the main book when meet each week. Reading a book is good but we must be in God's word daily, and this study guide helps you read what God says about the disciplines. Foster's insight in the book is incredible but it is supplemental to the foundation of scripture on the subject.

This is an excellent resource for small group study with Richard Foster's Celebration of Discipline. The questions encourage discussion and a practice of the spiritual disciplines.

I was introduced to Foster's work in my undergraduate studies. The COD has been such a blessing for encouragement and growth. I now pastor a small, rural church in Alabama. I use the COD study guide for our new members/new believers class. We give each member a copy of this book to help fuel their initial spiritual growth. Great book. Highly recommended!

The study guide provides valuable additional information regarding the application of the disciplines that is not included in the book. Foster knows our culture and our human nature well. I found that he addressed the difficulties I faced as I attempted to put the disciplines into practice. Foster mentions repeatedly that he felt more instruction was needed regarding the disciplines because some of the basic assumptions he made regarding reader knowledge were too generous. In other words, Christians are not getting the basic instruction in the disciplines that we did even a generation ago. I have found the information extremely valuable and the daily scripture readings are also helpful. I feel this guide is helpful regardless of how long you've been a Christian, but maybe more so for those who have come to the Lord as adults.
