— Lauren F. Winner, Duke Divinity School, author of Girl Meets God

 “Foster’s work is not for those readers who are seeking quick answers or a behavioral checklist of what the Bible says they should do. Rather, it is a deep reflective guide to spiritual rumination and growth.”
Publishers Weekly

Praise For Life with God: Reading the Bible for Spiritual Transformation

“For some time now Richard Foster has been teaching us how to live with a living God. Those of us who would follow Jesus, must inculcate and practice the disciplines required for discipleship. Who better points us toward the discipline life than Richard Foster? This is a transforming, radiant book.”
— Will Willimon, Bishop, the North Alabama Conference of the United Methodist Church and author of Conversations with Barth about Preaching (Abingdon, 2007)

”Richard Foster awakens us to God’s continued desire to commune with us despite the deafness of our sin-blunted ears. From long experience, he shows how the dynamic use of the spiritual disciplines can open our ears to God’s voice. A book to read slowly.”
— David Neff, Editor in Chief, Christianity Today

“Alluring warmth, empathetic breadth, and twenty-twenty perceptiveness, mild on sin but firm on grace, have together become the hallmark of the Renovare books. This pathway into the “with-God life” is a worthy addition to the study.”
— J.I. Packer, Professor of Theology, Regent College and author of Knowing God.

Foster is a reliable, compelling guide for a life in which God is a defining agent. The news from Foster is good indeed: God is with us!
— Walter Brueggemann, Emeritus Professor of Old Testament, Columbia Theological Seminary

“A deep reflective guide to spiritual rumination and growth.”
