About this deal

With an original music score by composer Stefano Mainetti (Abba Pater), feature-film quality sound effects, and compelling narration by Michael York and the work of over 500 actors, the The Word of Promise Audio Bible will immerse listeners in the dramatic reality of the scriptures as never before. The ultimate aim is that we would constantly be aware of the presence and person of Jesus in every moment of our lives – but this can only happen when we are going at a pace where we are slow enough to engage with our timeless God.

The role of personal prayer, worship in common, everyday work, and Christian service is treated in simple, almost biblical, words.We feel that everyone else has advanced so far into holiness that we are isolated and alone in our sin. If you’re simply engaging with our series and not directly with the book, then follow this guide for the first route for mediation: Meditation upon Scripture.

Getting away from the pressures and busyness of our lives is one of the healing benefits of solitude; this can lead to increased sensitivity and compassion for others.

Our prayer is that when we get to the other side of these 12 weeks we will look just a little bit more like Jesus. We must choose to connect with those overtures to grow a habit of journeying with Jesus – from the washing up to the essay writing.

Perhaps the most surprising discussion is to find the Discipline of solitude listed among the Outward Individual disciplines. The inward disciplines of meditation, prayer, fasting, and study offer avenues of personal examination and change. However, meditation is not a single act, nor can it be completed the way one completes the building of a char. Foster points out that the motivation toward establishing spiritual discipline is simply a “longing for God” (p.Celebration, then, frees us of an inflated view of our self-importance and of our tendency toward a judgmental spirit (pp. Awarded Christianity Today's Book of the Year award and the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association's Gold Medallion award, Prayer continues to receive widespread acclaim as one of the most thorough and insightful treatments of this central spiritual practice. Prepare yourself, lay down the distractions and remind yourself of what it is you are about to do and who it is you are meeting with as you worship. Within this audiobook, you’ll find a fascinating road map to staying emotionally healthy and spiritually alive in the chaos of the modern world. From Dallas Willard, one of the most important Christian intellectuals of the 20th century, comes a collection of readings, interviews, talks, and articles - many previously unpublished.

Deși m-am ferit în a trata aceste discipline ca pe "trucuri" cu efecte magice care să mă ducă la nivelul următor de spiritualitate, efectul parcurgerii lor ( in ordine aleatorie, așa cum mă îndemna Duhul) a produs schimbări majore în omul meu lăuntric. Adequately written with lots of quotes, some stories, and understandable writing, Celebration of Discipline is a classic that deserves a read by any Christian wanting to take their faith seriously, slowly, ponderously, and in the end, with great reward. We are sinking down into the light and life of Christ and becoming comfortable in that posture” (p19). In fact, your church may become so enamored with the idea of intimacy with God that they decide to fast regularly as a body and seek that intimacy together using the disciplines to propel them a bit deeper into Spirit-churned waters.

I feel it's often God's will for me to say what I said, but whether or not the listener takes it to heart is another matter entirely. Some people like objective descriptions of neat and tidy concepts (like me), whereas others prefer more subjective, open ended, provocative discussion (like Richard Foster, perhaps). He advocates some sound practices, but he cannot avoid throwing in some charismatic nonsense which ends up spoiling much of the batch. Guidance involved allowing others to make some decisions for you, and adhering to the will of a particular group who has prayed the answer for you.
