Streams of Living Water

Celebrating the Great Traditions of Christian Faith

By Richard Foster

  • Paperback
  • £13.99

The author of the bestselling CELEBRATION OF DISCIPLINE explores the great traditions of Christian spirituality and their role in spiritual renewal today.

In this landmark work, Richard Foster examines the 'streams of living water' - the six dimensions of faith and practice - that have defined Christian tradition around the world and down the centuries. In this inspiring book he looks at:

- the Contemplative tradition - or the prayer-filled life
- the Holiness tradition - or the virtuous life
- the Charismatic tradition - or the Spirit-empowered life
- the Social Justice tradition - or the compassionate life
- the Evangelical tradition - or the word-centred life
- the Incarnational tradition - or the sacramental life

Foster's celebration of the spiritual life incorporates history's most significant Christian figures and movements and argues for a rich, well-rounded faith, free of constricting labels.

Biographical Notes

Richard Foster is a best-selling author, the founder of RENOVARÉ - a movement committed to spiritual renewal - and Professor of Spiritual Formation at Azusa Pacific University, California.

I recommend Streams of Living Water everywhere I go. My own personal copy is dog-eared, underlined and annotated by hand. Anyone with a heart for Christian unity should read and celebrate the message of this book. I consider it to be a seminal title for our time. — Pete Greig
Prophetic when it was first published 20 years ago, I think it is even more relevant today... Wonderful. — Idea Magazine

The Utter Relief of Holiness

John Eldredge
Authors:
John Eldredge

Do you want to feel whole - but too often, feel pulled in different directions? Do you want to be holy - but think it's beyond you? We tend to associate holiness with striving and restriction - but what if a holy life were really about being set free from all our burdens? In THE UTTER RELIEF OF HOLINESS, John Eldredge teaches that, rather than being a daunting or distant ideal, holiness is in fact an expression of the healing of our humanity. Eldredge believes that we can be set free from all that plagues us - the inner struggle with anger, or contempt, or habitual sins - to find the genuine goodness that is available to us in Jesus Christ.Wise, gentle and rooted in the Bible, THE UTTER RELIEF OF HOLINESS guides the reader along the paths God leads us to make us whole and holy - by his love.

The Question that Never Goes Away

Philip Yancey
Authors:
Philip Yancey

Some days, the news seems too much to bear. Yet another tsunami or earthquake or flood or fire or war atrocity. One more gun-toting madman stalking young people in idyllic Norway or moviegoers in Colorado or schoolchildren in Newtown, Connecticut. We turn off the news only to get a phone call about expectant parents with a stillborn baby, or a loved one whose cancer has returned. If we have faith in God, it gets shaken to the core. What was God doing in the moment when that tragedy could have been prevented? If we can't trust God to keep our children safe or our loved ones from dying in agony, what can we trust God for?In his classic book WHERE IS GOD WHEN IT HURTS?, Philip Yancey gave us permission to doubt, reasons not to abandon faith, and practical ways to reach out to hurting people. Now, with new perspectives and stories gathered across nearly twenty-five years, once again he tackles the hard questions head-on. His visits to three places in 2012 raised the old problems with new urgency. More veteran pilgrim than curious journalist in his later years, Yancey faces with his trademark honesty the issues that often undermine faith, yet he emerges with comfort and hope. Along the way, he shows that Christians have an important role to play in bringing healing to a deeply wounded world.There are hopeful reasons to ask, once again, the question that never goes away...

How to be a Bad Christian

Dave Tomlinson
Authors:
Dave Tomlinson

In the course of his work as a vicar, Dave Tomlinson meets lots of people who describe themselves as 'not good enough' to be a Christian, thinking that faith involves going to church a lot, or believing in a list of strange things, or following certain rules. But being a Christian isn't about any of that - and actually, following Jesus is a lot easier, and more fun, than most people think...In this handbook to Christianity for people who describe themselves as spiritual but not necessarily religious, Dave sketches out some key practices for how to be a 'bad' Christian, including how to talk to God without worrying about prayer, how to read the Bible without turning off your brain, and how to think with your soul rather than trying to follow rules. With beautiful illustrations from artist Rob Pepper, this is an accessible, light-hearted book, but one with a powerful invitation: to be the person you've always wanted to be, following a God you've always hoped is on your side.
