Prayer is one of the most important activities for a Christian. But how do we pray? Prayer is one of the most misunderstood things in the Church. If we are going to learn, we need to turn to the Bible. Thankfully, D.A. Carson presents us a resource with his Praying with Paul.
This is the second edition of this book, which tells us how important a guide for prayer is. The book is basically a look at some of Paul’s prayers with commentary and application. Carson also includes a number of chapters that fill in the gaps on prayer principles.
Praying with Paul is a very good book for two reasons. Carson is a solid biblical scholar and each chapter reflects his exegetical skill. Carson also includes many illustrations that help the reader to see the modern application. Carson’s aim is to provide a biblically reliable study that will really lead to spiritual reformation within the reader.
I highly recommend this book.
