Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Yancey probes the very heartbeat of mankind's relationship to God in this invitation to communicate with God through prayer. (Christian Religion)

Review:

"Yancey strikes a moving chord with this book that is more full of yearning and wonder than it is of easy answers. Prayer, he writes, is our partnership with God, our chance to join forces with God's power to confront suffering and evil head-on. Yancey is candid about his nagging sense of failure in prayer, but the book is suffused with a cautious hope; he writes of his growing confidence and joy as his prayer life has deepened from a spiritualized to-do list to a conversational communion with God. The key, Yancey writes, is that prayer is a window into knowing the mind of God, whose kingdom is entrusted to all of us frail, selfish people on earth. As with his other books, Yancey draws upon his international travels to bring a fresh perspective to the topic, detailing, in nations such as Romania and South Africa, how he believes prayer has transformed hearts and permitted bloodless change. The book's strength lies in its balance, with Yancey holding equally important ideals in a beautiful tension: action and meditation, doubt and certainty, and the unchanging God with the God who appears so moved by people's petitions in the Bible that he changes his mind. Yancey also offers some startling and insightful observations about Jesus' own prayer life." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Philip Yancey probes the very heartbeat--the most fundamental, challenging, perplexing, and deeply rewarding aspect--of our relationship with God: prayer. What is prayer? Does it change God's mind or ours--or both? This book is an invitation to communicate with God the Father who invites us into an eternal partnership through prayer.

Synopsis:

In his most powerful book since What's So Amazing About Grace? and The

Jesus I Never Knew, Philip Yancey probes the very heartbeat?the most

fundamental, challenging, perplexing, and deeply rewarding aspect?of our

relationship with God: prayer. What is prayer? How does it work? And more

importantly, does it work? In theory, prayer is the essential human act, a priceless point of contact between us and the God of the universe. In practice, prayer is often frustrating, confusing, and fraught with mystery. Prayer: Does It Make Any Difference? is an exploration of the mysterious intersection where God and humans meet and relate. Writing as a fellow pilgrim, Yancey explores such questions as:

?Is God listening?

?Why should God care about me?

?If God knows everything, what's the point of prayer?

?Why do answers to prayer seem so inconsistent and capricious?

?Why does God seem sometimes close and sometimes far away?

?How can I make prayer more satisfying?

?I have found that the most important purpose of prayer may be to let ourselves be loved by God, ? says Yancey. Prayer: Does It Make Any Difference? encourages us to pray to God the Father who sees what lies ahead of us, knows what lies within us, and who invites us into an eternal partnership?through prayer. Also available: unabridged audio CD.
