Richard Foster expounds on his introduction to the successful Renovare Spiritual Formation Bible and his concept of the “with-God life,” showing how all of Scripture is unified around the theme of how to have a vibrant and dynamic life with God. For Foster, the with-God life concept allows the “river of life that flows through the Bible into the thirsty wastelands of the human soul.” Breaking up history into fifteen epochs that reveal the unfolding of God’s plan for seeking out a relationship to us, Foster sees the Bible as “the loving heart of God made visible and plain” to us. The with-God life “is a life of unhurried peace and power. It is solid, serene, simple, radiant. It takes no time, though it permeates all of our time.” Readers will discover a whole new way to read Scripture, making it much more a doorway to a lifestyle to master rather than merely knowledge to understand.
