Rick Shrader‘s Review:
In 2016 David C. Cook reprinted Warren Wiersbe’s book on prayer from 2006. The title describes the content. Wiersbe takes the reader from the very basic concepts of prayer (talking, thanking, asking), gradually building to deeper understanding (approaching the throne of grace). However, this book isn’t a theological textbook on prayer, of which Wiersbe was entirely capable, but is a starting place, or perhaps an encouraging read, on the matter of prayer. Wiersbe fills the book with many valuable quotes from good men. For examble, Ambrose Bierce’s definition of prayer: “To ask that the laws of the universe be annulled on behalf of a single petitioner, confessedly unworthy.” p. 31.
