Streams of Living Water

Full Product Description

  • Curious about how Church tradition influences faith today?
  • Streams of Living Water is a thoughtful look at Christianity's roots
  • Discover how a rich understanding of early Christianity can bring new life to faith
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.

Streams of Living Water by Richard Foster was published by Hodder & Stoughton General Division in September 2017 and is our 398th best seller. The ISBN for Streams of Living Water is 9781473662100.
