It should be noted that this book on prayer is a 2016 Moody book and is a compilation of material from A.W. Tozer arranged, edited, and commented on, by W.L. Weaver. I list Tozer as the author only because he is the one in whom the reader is interested. Weaver includes 28 entries from Tozer […]

Prayer 101

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 […]

Grandparenting with a Purpose

Of a growing number of books on grandparenting, this is a 2019 book by Lillian Penner which is an update of a 2010 book. This book majors on how to pray for grandchildren.

Spurgeon’s Prayers

 C.H. Spurgeon was probably the most quoted preacher of the last two hundred years.  It is no wonder that many of his very prayers, prayed during the services of Metropolitan Tabernacle in London (1854-1892) would be transcribed and printed as well.  And I must admit, after reading twenty six pulpit prayers recorded in this book, […]

The Practice of Prayer

While browsing in a used book section of a store, I found this 1906 edition printed in the second year of Morgan’s 39 year ministry at the Westminster Chapel in London (not to be confused with either the Abbey or the Cathedral).  Morgan was followed there by D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones who retired in 1968.  One […]
