The Making of an Ordinary Saint Nathan Foster

In The Making of an Ordinary Saint, Nathan Foster takes us on a journey as he experiments with the practices his father described more than thirty years ago in his classic book Celebration of Discipline. He explores the disciplines which his father has given his life to teaching and modelling. Nathan tries them on, lives in them for a while, pushes through in order to learn what to keep, and what to work at. By inviting readers to accompany him on this journey of developing holy habits in the midst of everyday life - spouse, children, day job, deadline pressures, the interruptions - Nathan's intention is not to give a dumbed down version of his dad's work but rather to provide an interactive exploration of the challenges, joys, successes, and failures of an honest person moving with intentionality toward God.
