Don't be put off by the lofty title - this is a very practical book about how we can learn from the Bible to pray in line with God's plans.
Don Carson argues that the most urgent need of today's Christians in the West is a closer knowledge of God and that a crucial step towards this is the way we pray. As we seek to live in accordance with God's plans and our place in them as revealed in the Bible, so must we seek to pray. Carson examines eight prayers from the letters of Paul. He proposes that we can learn from them how to pray in keeping with God's purposes, as Paul does. In these excellent studies Christians today can still achieve the closeness Paul enjoyed by following his life shaping principles and searching for a deeper devotional experience.
