It is in this practice that we also become God's dwelling place.In Richard Foster's bestselling book Celebration of Discipline, he explored the "classic disciplines," or central spiritual practices of the Christian faith, as the true path by which spiritual growth can be found. From A Year with God, you will learn how to let God transform and guide you day to day by spending time in key practices and spiritual disciplines such as prayer, worship, solitude, silence, confession, guidance, and celebration. Through 365 daily readings of Scripture, commentary, meditations, and spiritual exercises, you can put these disciplines into practice, contributing to a reformation of the inner self and a more balanced spiritual life-the abundant life God intends for you.

In Richard Foster's best-selling book, Celebration of Discipline, he explored the "classic disciplines," or central spiritual practices of the Christian faith. Foster showed that it is only by and through these practices that the true path to spiritual growth can be found. In A Year with God, the spiritual disciplines are presented in such a way that does not destroy the soul but enables the reader to enter into a transforming life with God.
Through daily spiritual exercises and meditations, A Year with God explores eighteen spiritual disciplines. The inward disciplines of meditation, prayer, fasting, and study offer avenues of personal examination and change. The outward disciplines of simplicity, solitude, submission, and service help prepare one to make the world a better place. The corporate disciplines of confession, worship, guidance, and celebration bring one nearer to others and to God. Each discipline will be given twenty days of readings, beginning with scripture and followed by commentary, a meditation, and a spiritual exercise. Practicing these spiritual disciplines will help readers live intentionally, contributing to a more balanced spiritual life and a reformation of the inner self.
