In 1978, Richard Foster's classic Celebration of Discipline sparked the Christian spiritual formation movement. Forty years later, at a church leadership conference, Foster delivered his final public talk which addressed new challenges Christians face on the road of becoming more like Jesus. That talk is now available in this brief booklet.
All proceeds from this booklet support Renovaré, a nonprofit that helps people in becoming more like Jesus.
