In this landmark work, Foster examines these "streams of living water" - the six dimensions of faith and practice that define Christian tradition. He lifts up the enduring character of each tradition in the midst of constantly evolving faith and shows how a variety of practices, from individual study and retreat to disciplines of service and community, are essential elements of growth and maturity. Each of these great historical movements emphasizes a different aspect of life and faith. The six streams Foster presents are: the Contemplative, or prayer-filled life; the life of Holiness, or the virtuous life; the Charismatic, or Spirit-empowered life; the life of Social Justice, or the compassionate life; the Evangelical, or Word-centered life; and finally, the Incarnational, or sacramental life. Foster examines the unique contributions of these traditions, and offers as examples the inspiring stories of faithful people whose lives defined each of these "streams." In Streams of Living Water, Foster seeks a balanced path to a renewal of the spirit. He identifies the strengths and weaknesses of each stream and offers practical ways to incorporate these spiritual dimensions into our daily lives - offering a clear and tangible path to authentic Christian experience. He reveals that while each stream is capable of providing spiritual growth, the most complete renewal can only come from combining the best from each tradition. Read Less
