'At the very heart of God is the passionate disposition to be in loving fellowship with you... From the human side of this equation it is meditative prayer that ushers us into this divine-human fellowship.' Richard Foster, bestselling author of CELEBRATION OF DISCIPLINE and founder of Renovaré, writes these words as one who has experienced what they describe. This new book gently guides you along the path of meditative prayer, so that you too can know a deeper fellowship with God.Weaving together quotes and stories from the lives of mothers and fathers of the faith as well as powerful encounters with God from his own life, Foster describes the riches of quieting your mind and heart in order to listen to and obey God more closely. Along the way, at his clearest, most practical best, he also provides the biblical teaching and step-by-step help you need to begin this prayer practice for yourself.

Money, Sex and Power

Richard Foster
Authors:
Richard Foster

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.'
