• Streams of Living Water Foreword by James Catford

    Streams of Living Water is a subversive and wonderful book. Dallas Willard, my mentor and Richard Foster’s friend, believed it was probably Richard’s most significant contribution to the church, even though his earlier Celebration of Discipline has sold many more copies. As a young and inexperienced book editor at Hodder & Stoughton, I vividly remember […]
  • Abundance not Exaggeration

    The Abundant Life versus the Exaggerated Life Who does not want a fulfilled life, a life that matters? ‘To abound’ means ‘to overflow’, ‘to increase’, ‘to add’ and ‘to enlarge’.

To those of us who live in a world of efficient farming, industrial bakeries, and super-sized grocery stores, asking for our daily bread may seem a quaint, too trivial petition. Not so, says Richard Foster in today’s post. Jesus immerses […]
  • The Inner Life of the Public Person

    Truth be told, I haven’t read all the books on the market about leadership – it just feels that way.  Pass through any airport bookshop and you are likely to see me leafing through the pages of the latest business best-seller. Yes, I’m the one with the carry-on bag blocking your way to the checkout. […]
