Celebrating the Disciplines: A Journal Workbook to Accompany ``Celebration of Discipline'' Mar 11, 2010
This is the first book that our entire churh read together. It is great.
The best book on the process of getting to know God Oct 8, 2009
"Celebrating the Disciplines" is an excellent companion workbook to "Celebration of Discipline". We are using it in a home group setting and it is stimulating a lot of discussion and taking us beneath the surface of our lives and opening us up to the hidden world we all long to know.
great resource for additional study Mar 26, 2008
This guide really brings home the concepts explored in Foster's book on Disciplines. If you're interested in delving into those area in a deeper way, you'll probably enjoy this guide. It actually allows you to go through it several times (which is unusual for these types of guides), personally or in larger groups). I really appreciated it.
Don't waste your money. Jun 6, 2007
As with several study guides that follow a successful book, it seems more like a way to make more $$ than really be a good guide. It might work as a personal study guide, but for a group it's not good. If you're going to do it personally, just study the book and take notes. Why do you need a guide?
