Rick Shrader‘s Review:
This small book on the two-verse prayer of Jabez in 2 Chron 4, has caused quite a stir in Christians circles. Without being too critical I would say that this is a light devotional look (certainly not an exposition) at an Old Testament prayer. Many good things are said about prayer, especially section 4 on praying for help during temptation. The down-side is that this is taylor-made for a consumer society looking for a way to get things for themselves. There are striking differences between this and older writers on prayer such as Torrey and Chambers.
