A must-read. Co-written with his wife Kathy, it is very nicely done, intimate and helpful. Still, it firstly is a lovely study of the ways in which Jesus prayed in the first century, and how we can learn from Him.
I have benefited enormously from this profound yet simple and helpful book. In this very engaging work, Miller offers wise, but down-to-Earth advice, tells humorous stories about his own daily life. Endorsements come from respected evangelical leaders such as Timothy Keller, J.

Packer and Dr. Philip Ryken, the President of Wheaton College.
This is his most well-known book, considered by many to be one of the most significant books on the topic written, at least in the last hundred years. Written with a vocabulary and tone from another era, there is a reason this is one of the biggest selling religious books of all time. This is one of the rare books that studies the actual prayers and pray-ers of the Bible, and, by exploring the longings and words of these ancient pray-ers, offers glimpses into how we, too, can approach the Divine in words.
Every chapter is the prayer of a different Biblical pray-er. Brueggemann is perhaps the most esteemed, if provocative, Old Testament scholar in our generation, recently retired from the Columbia Theological Seminary in Decatur Georgia.

His dense and evocative prose has unlocked the social and historical context of the ancient Hebrew Scriptures, and he has done scholarly commentaries on many portions of the Older Testament. In this popular work he construes imaginative, thick readings of Israelite faith that has endlessly rich implications for our understandings today. Not a practical manuel on how to pray, but a mature story of relevant Hebrew texts. For a more familiar exercise, what if your student were to ask a grandparent, aunt, uncle, cousin, or other family member to be a pen pal for the summer?
He could use this opportunity to talk about lovely things, such as a favorite summer reading selection. Have him encourage his pen pal to tell him about their own summer reading. What a gift this would be! Finally, you might encourage your student to explore beautiful writing by crafting a prayer. One lovely form to imitate is the collect, a short, five-part prayer often used in worship.

When the school year commences, perhaps revisit some of these writing ideas on your day of rest each week. Those who learn to love the work of creating beauty may find leisurely writing to be a rest for their souls.
Additionally, many students can offer some of their writings in the form of a presentation to their own learning communities: for example, by sharing an opening or lunchtime prayer, or by giving a lesson to a younger sibling. All of these prompts are intended to encourage your student to participate fully in his or her community. Through proclaiming truth about the world, praising good and wise actions, or offering beautiful worship to God, among other things, our students see how the arts of writing and rhetoric give form to lofty ideas, challenging us to share our very minds and hearts with our family, our friends, and our Savior.
A further aim of these arts is to create harmony in our communities, which often implies the ebb and flow of words, perhaps through conversation, correspondence, or prayer.

On my list a few authors are Roman Catholic, most are evangelical in orientation, a few are what might be considered mainline Protestant. One is even written by a slightly charismatic Quaker, another by an Orthodox priest himself a medical doctor and son of a Russian diplomat. A couple are old-school, staunch, a few are upbeat and fun.
As a list it is, I might suggest, a bit more ecumenical and socially diverse then many of those who contributed to the special edition at the Times. Naturally, their own orientation is notably conservative, the faith leaders exceptionally passionate about revival praying. I appreciate much of that, but our list is at once a bit more basic and a bit more broad.
We hope this list draws you into the best and most interesting books about prayer and, more importantly, draws you to the One who calls us to pray: the Triune God of the Bible, revealed in Scripture, known in the person of Jesus Christ, whose incarnation as the true King we will soon celebrate.
May these books help you know Him and — as some of His earliest disciples were known to have said — thereby become more fully alive, more human, more like Jesus Himself. It would be our pleasure to serve you further. Our order form see the link below takes you to our on line order form page which is certified secure so you can safely leave credit card info.

Here, he asks a perennial question — does prayer really matter? It asks questions that most people have — is God listening? Does it change what happens? Very thoughtful and honest. This is ideal for those who feel too stressed to take time to pray regularly, or for those who need guidance in the basics.
Hybels is the renowned pastor of the large Willow Creek Church near Chicago, known for its upbeat services aimed at the unchurched, so he knows how to write for an audience that may not be used to deep theology or heavy Biblical studies. Very highly recommended. Simple as it seems, even deep and reliable authors such as Richard Foster have said it is one of the very best.
