Praying by Example

Although prayer was a central aspect of Jesus’ life throughout all four gospels, it is often overlooked. See Luke’s Gospel anew—through the lense of prayer. As Christians, we are called to pray to our Father. This practice is often a hidden affair, between us and God, and can be easily neglected. Why do we settle for less when God wants to give us so much more? In Revealing the Heart of Prayer, Craig G. Bartholomew helps us see how to live and participate effectively in God’s mission—by looking to Jesus as an example for how we should pray.

The Transformative Word Series

God’s Word is transformative. It is this conviction which gives the Transformative Word series its name and its unique character. Series Editor Craig G. Bartholomew has worked alongside authors from around the world to identify a key theme in each book of the Bible, and each volume provides careful Biblical exegesis centered on that gripping theme. The result is an engaging, accessible thematic exploration of a biblical book, poised to offer you new and refreshing insights.

    This is a useful, easy-to-read little book that gives much encouragement about Prayer. Basing the work primarily on the Gospel of Luke - though also includes a chapter on Acts - does allow for a good basis of examining several different aspects. I especially liked the application made to pastors and church leaders throughout. Each chapter has some questions at the end - making this also a useful tool for a Bible Study. Good references, though brief, are welcomed. I would recommend this to all fellow Christians, and especially fellow pastors who need some light encouragement in the area of prayer.
