A Year with God, eds., Foster and Roller

I had been reading about the spiritual disciplines and wanted daily encouragement on how to implement them so turned to this book.  It has been a rewarding read.  Subtitled Living Out the Spiritual Disciplines, it goes through many disciplines providing meditations and practices.  Scripture are given, identifying the biblical mandate for the discipline, and then practical suggestions for living out the practice follow.  Many of the disciplines are well known (prayer, solitude, fasting, etc.) but some took me by surprise (such as celebration).
I plan to read this one again in 2011 and perhaps in years following, wanting these disciplines to be a part of my daily spiritual life.
