Money, Sex and Power
The Challenge of the Disciplined Life
By Richard Foster
A brand new re-issue of this Christian classic, with a beautifully illustrated new cover.
No issues touch us more profoundly or universally,' writes Richard Foster. 'No topics cause more controversy. No human realities have greater power to bless or curse. No three things have been more sought after or are more in need of a Christian response.'
Money, Sex and Power discerns the biblical principles that enable us to live out a relevant and authentic response to the three greatest temptations of our age.
Gerard Kelly writes: 'Foster follows a road few in recent years have travelled, and does so with depth, wit and down-to-earth wisdom. Don't assume for one moment that this book is anti-money, anti-sex or anti-power: the author has a healthy respect and admiration for all three as sacred gifts of a loving creator. What he does urge us to do, though, is to "live rightly" in respect of these key ares, and so to be freed into a life of creative celebration.'
Richard J. Foster is the founder of Renovare and author of a number of bestselling books, including LIFE WITH GOD and CELEBRATION OF DISCIPLINE, which promote personal spiritual renewal. Richard travels throughout the world, speaking and teaching on the spiritual life.
