Title Details

Abridged Edition
Running Time
3 Hrs.


Richard J. Foster has touched countless lives with his spiritual classic, Celebration of Discipline, which has sold over one million copies since it was first published twenty years ago. Now, with Streams of Living Water, Foster again strengthens and enriches the spiritual lives of listeners everywhere with this unique exploration of the major traditions at the core of Christian practice.

In this landmark work, Foster examines these "streams of living water" - the six dimensions of faith and practice that define Christian tradition. He lifts up the enduring character of each tradition in the midst of constantly evolving faith and shows how a variety of practices, from individual study and retreat to disciplines of service and community, are all essential elements of growth and maturity.

Each of these great historical movements emphasizes a different aspect of life and faith. The six streams Foster presents are: the "Contemplative," or prayer-filled life; the life of "Holiness," or the virtuous life; the "Charismatic," or Spirit-empowered life; the life of "Social Justice," or the compassionate life; the "Evangelical," or Word-centered life; and finally, the "Incarnational," or sacramental life.

Foster examines the unique contributions of each of these traditions, and offers as examples the inspiring stories of faithful people whose own lives defined these "streams."

In Streams of Living Water, Foster seeks a balanced path to a renewal of the spirit. He identifies the strengths and the weaknesses of each stream and offers practical waysto incorporate each of these spiritual dimensions into our daily lives - offering a clear and tangible path to authentic Christian experience. He reveals that while each stream is capable of providing spiritual growth, the most complete renewal can only come from combining the best from each tradition.
