Show synopsis 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 this book, 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.
