Editorial Reviews

Review

“Foster’s personal honesty, forthrightness, and literary courage are compelling.” -- Ted Engstrom, president emeritus, World Vision

“A stirring and timely message to Christians specifically and to humanity generally.” -- Mark Hatfield, senator from Oregon

“Belongs in the hearts and hands of all who call themselves Christ’s followers.” -- David Allan Hubbard, president and professor of Old Testament, Fuller Theological Seminary

“If everybody in this country could read―and heed―this book, what a difference it would make to the planet.” -- Madeleine L'Engle

“This book will become a challenging and formative part of your spiritual life.” -- Lauren Winner, author of Girl Meets God and Real Sex: The Naked Truth About Chastity

From the Back Cover

Written in his warm, accessible style, this updated edition of Richard Foster’s classic work on simplicity explores this discipline throughout Christian history and the Bible as well as examining simplicity in practice. Foster provides a way to rethink our priorities and to “seek first God’s kingdom and his righteousness.” He shows us how to live in harmony with the rich complexity of life while stressing the relation of simplicity to prayer, solitude, and all the Christian disciplines. With a new introduction and revisions throughout.
