Books I Love: Part 2

Posted by Michael

Thanks for all of the feedback on books that have impacted you. I can’t wait to read some of the books you’ve recommended! Keep the ideas coming!

Another book that impacted me in my Christian life was “Celebration of Discipline” by Richard Foster. Foster was heavily influenced by the Quaker tradition, but his writings apply wonderfully to all Christians. It is difficult to find a book about spiritual growth and disciplines that isn’t legalistic or driven by guilt. Foster writes with grace and mercy and his breakdown of various Christian disciplines is encouraging. I enjoy books that tend to propel you into action, and “Celebration of Discipline” is just such a book. It invites you to be intentional about your growth, and offers straightforward advice in how to begin. It’s a great book to have on the bookshelf to return to periodically.  It is enjoyable reading and is also a catalyst for growth.
