He earned his undergraduate degree at George Fox University in Oregon and his Doctor of Pastoral Theology at Fuller Theological Seminary,and received an honorary doctorate from Houghton College.

Foster is best known for his 1978 book Celebration of Discipline, which examines the inward disciplines of prayer, fasting, meditation, and study in the Christian life, the outward disciplines of simplicity, solitude, submission, and service, and the corporate disciplines of confession, worship, guidance, and celebration. It has sold over one million copies. It was named by Christianity Today as one of the top ten books of the twentieth century. A work described as a sequel to Celebration is Foster's 1985 Money, Sex & Power. and associated study guide.

He also published Freedom of Simplicity in 1981, which further explores the discipline of simple, intentional living, Freedom of Simplicity.

Foster (along with several others) also wrote the devotional Renovaré Spiritual Formation Bible (now published as The Life with God Study Bible).

Reviews - What do customers think about Alabanza a la Disciplina?

Un clásico para hoy  Jul 5, 2007
Este es uno de los pocos libros no católicos dedicado a las disciplinas espirituales. Este libro fue traducido al español y publicado por primera vez por Editorial Caribe en 1986. Por alguna razón que desconozco fue retirado de la circulación y ninguna otra editorial lo ha publicado desde entonces. La editorial Wipf and Stock Publishers que se dedica a publicar libros cristianos de calidad en inglés retirados de la circulación por algún motivo, lo ha reimpreso y es la única que lo tiene disponible en español.
Muy desilusionado de la carnalidad que se ve en muchas iglesias y de lo aparente y falso de muchas de ellas, incluyendo el mercantilismo, pero sin perder la fe en Dios y en la Biblia, buscaba yo algo que no solamente me ayudara a fortalecer mi fe sino que me acercara más íntimamente a Dios. Tuve la bendición de encontrar la refererencia a este libro citado en otro que estaba leyendo (Spiritual Theology de Simon Chang, IVP), lo busqué y lo conseguí por Internet. No me defraudó.
El libro está dividido en tres partes: Las disciplinas internas, las disciplinas externas y las disciplinas colectivas.
En la parte dedicada a las disciplinas internas, se consagrá un capítulo a cada una de ellas: la meditación, la oración, el ayuno y el estudio bíblico.
La parte dedicada a las disciplinas externas también dedica un capítulo a cada una de las disciplinas externas: la sencillez, el retiro, la sumisión y el servicio.
La última parte, dedicada a las disciplinas colectivas dedica un capítulo a cada una de ellas: la confesión, la adoración, la consejería y el gozo.
Una cosa que me admiró de este libro es que aunque publicado en 1986 se anticipa a todos los desafíos que confronta la iglesia en general y el cristiano en particular en el siglo 21. No puede ser más útil para todos aquellos creyentes que están cansados de aparentar y aguantar tanta falsedad en el mundo «cristiano» y están en busca de una vía espiritual que los lleve a mantener su fe y su servicio a Dios y a Su iglesia con la espiritualidad, el gozo y el entusiasmo apropiados.
Usted puede leer esta reseña y la de otros libros cristianos en mi bitácora (blog): «Libros Cristianos».
