Foster – Living Water

Foster, Richard. Streams of Living Water. San Francisco, CA: Harper Collins, 1998. Foster identifies six traditions or streams of the Holy Spirit’s activity – identifying the impact of these streams in the life and ministry of Jesus, in a biblical context, in history and in a contemporary paradigm. Each chapter explores a tradition and follows a standard form. Foster contends that in these days we can expect – and we are seeing – the merging of these streams. This is a concept with which I identified immediately, for it has been my conviction that before Jesus returns in glory, we will again see the restoration of a New Testament type fellowship based on an authentic and biblical relationship with Jesus and His Spirit.
