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 Culture of God

Nadim Nassar
Authors:
Nadim Nassar

Father Nadim Nassar is the Church of England's only Syrian priest, and an outspoken advocate for western Christians to recognise their Middle-Eastern heritage. In The Culture of God, his first book, Father Nadim argues that there are three cultures Christians need to understand when they read the Bible: the culture of the Bible itself, their own culture, and finally 'the culture of God'. Ultimately it was Jesus who had direct access to the culture of God; and so we need to begin by understanding Jesus in his own first-century Middle Eastern culture.This fresh and provocative book, passionately argued, is an unfolding of what Father Nadim sees as the culture of God and how, when we understand it, it transforms our understanding of our faith.

Lorna Byrne

Lorna Byrne has helped millions of people around the world by calling on them to realise that they each have a guardian angel and by showing them that can ask for help from God and the angels.Lorna is often asked for help on how to ask and how to pray, so in this new book she gives detailed advice and also includes prayers for different occasions.She says: 'Sometimes our prayers are so focussed on asking for things, we forget to listen out for what God, the angels and our love ones are trying to tell us. God always has this abundance of blessings prepared for us, small blessings and great blessings. He wants to give every individual great life-changing blessings, beginning when that individual is born. God will do everything to make it happen, but He will never infringe on an individual's free will, which a good reason for us to engage intelligent conversation with him - listening as well as asking - in prayer.'
