I wanted to like this book. No, that's not true. I wanted to love this book. Before requesting a copy to review, I had read several other reviews first, and saw many people talk about how life-changing it was. How it had revolutionized their prayer life.
I am sad to report that this wasn't the cas...

I read this as part of a bible study I am doing with friends and found this book difficult to get through. There were some enjoyable and very helpful parts that I will tuck in my back pocket. I even quoted it a couple of times, because of some profound things he wrote. I just expected it to be mo...

Probably the most life/faith transforming book I've read in a LONG time. The Circle Maker RADICALLY altered the course of my life (in a good way :) and the 40 Day Prayer Challenge trumped it. If you can only get one of the books, I HIGHLY recommend the 40 Day Prayer Challenge. It's a book you'll...

This book is a good guide to assessing and improving your prayer life. It's set up as a 40-day devotional and could be read over and over to remind you of the power of prayer. If War Room spurred you to improve your prayer life, this is a good way to start.

Prayer is powerful! Read the book as requested by our pastor for a church wide activity to get everyone thinking about prayer. Our pastor, as I believe Mark Batterson is doing in writing this book, is to have all of us focus on the discipline of making prayer part of our lives.

In the last month and a half I have read four books by Mark Batterson, and I have read each of the books twice. That speaks to the power of these books. But to be honest, this one might be the most powerful one yet and most likely to change your life and maybe even help to change the world. It al...

This was an interesting experience. While I found the act of reading a chapter a day and journaling accordingly to be a great habit to firm, I often found the book to be clichéd. Much of it felt like an ad for the author's church and other books. However, overall, the practice that this 40 days h...
