So many of us want to make the Bible the foundation of our way of life, but struggle to make sense of it or know where to start reading. Richard Foster believes that it is because we fail to grasp the overriding coherent message of the Bible – that all of Scripture is unified around the theme of living a vibrant and dynamic life with God.
Breaking up history into fifteen ages that reveal the unfolding of God’s relationship with us, Foster reveals the Bible as ‘the loving heart of God made visible and plain’.
Richard Foster is the founder of RENOVARE and author of a number of internationally bestselling books including Celebration of Discipline and Prayer. Richard travels throughout the world, speaking and teaching on the spiritual life.
‘A huge gap yawns in our culture between reading the Bible and living the Bible. Many read it. Not nearly as many live it. Richard Foster’s purpose is to close the gap. The writing is lucid, inviting, and friendly. Read this and experience for yourself the closing of the gap.’
