From the author of CELEBRATION OF DISCIPLINE comes a major new exploration of spiritual renewal
Many Christians have a hunger for God that their own tradition seems unable to fully satisfy. While keeping the Bible as his touchstone, Richard Foster has discovered how other historical strands can offer additional food for the spiritual journey. In the first major book since his highly acclaimed PRAYER, Richard Foster celebrates the riches of Christian experience today.
While Evangelicals live a ‘Word centred’ life, the Charismatics have discovered a ‘spirit empowered’ life. But there is much to learn also from the holiness traditions who practice a ‘virtuous life’ as well as the ‘social justice movement. Contemplative and other perspectives are also explored, drawing on historic lives and biblical teaching to offer a more enriching relationship with God and his world.

Today a might river is bursting forth… It is a deep river of divine intimacy, a powerful river of holy living, a dancing river of jubilation in the Spirit, a broad river of unconditional love for all peoples.
The astonishing new reality is that this mighty flow brings together streams of life that have been isolated from one another for a very long time.
If we want to see this river of life in its most complete form, it is to Jesus we must turn.
In 'Streams of Living Water,' a powerful new book from Richard Foster, the Great Traditions of Christian faith unfold:
• Contemplative – the prayer-filled life
• Holiness – the virtuous life
• Charismatic – the Spirit-empowered life
• Social justice – the compassionate life
• Evangelical – the Word-centred life
• Incarnational – the sacramental life
