Helps us to understand what makes our Christian faith so rich and meaningful... Ted W. Engstrom, President Emeritus, World Vision 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 ways to 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. Read by the author.… (mais)

Richard Foster is one of my favorite writers on spiritual matters. I read this book in small snippets daily at devotion time, loved it and was greatly blessed by it. Foster examines six streams of Christianity - the Contemplative, Holiness, Charismatic, Social Justice, Evangelical, and Incarnational Traditions. He defines each, gives a historical example, a Biblical example, and a contemporary example - an embodied example - of each, and discusses the strengths and dangers of each tradition, and how they interact with each other. He writes beautifully. He has written a beautiful, significant, and inspiring book once again. He has also included a lot of auxiliary material in two appendixes (with Linda Graybeal) on critical turning points in church history, other notable figures and important movements in church history, and includes many endnotes for a more academic approach to church tradition and history..This is a book well worth reading for information, inspiration, and spiritual formation. Highly recommended. ( )

It took me over a year to complete this book (I set it down for a while in the middle) so it is hard to give a review of the material, as I do not necessarily remember details from the beginning.
However, I sincerely appreciated Richard's attempt to summarize the great traditions of the Christian faith. He did this by telling the story of three notable figures within that tradition: one from Scripture, one "historical", and one "modern". He also, then, explains the tradition, what we can learn from it and apply to our lives, and the positives and negatives that come along with it.
I found the book to be extremely exciting and convicting at times, as well as informative to the point of dryness at other times. However, due to the nature of the book both should be expected and both were appreciated and well done in their own rite. ( )

An excellent overview of the ways which people have approached living out their Christian faith. Each section has examples of people who exemplify that particular tradition. ( )

Foster goes through different Christian movements (i.e. Social justice, evangelical, charismatic), telling the story of key people from each one. He also goes over methods for following in these traditions, pointing out the strengths and weaknesses of each. An excellent overview, but be sure to allow for some time to read it, it requires some thought and brainpower on the part of the reader to really absorb what he is saying. ( )

An excellent examination of the differing faith-traditions of the Christian church throughout history, and their inherent value to each other. For each faith-tradition, Foster examines three people who fit each tradition: one from history, one from Biblical history, and one from contemporary history. Foster suggests that the time is coming when these various tradtions will once again reconverge after hundreds of years of separation, and revitalize and refuel the future of the church. ( )
