New York Times bestselling author John Eldredge offers readers a step-by-step guide to effective Christian prayer.
We want to eat whatever we want, but without our health collapsing down the road. We want our friends to be attentive, but without considering how our behavior impacts them. We want our kids to thrive, but without making sacrifices. But that's not the way the world works. And prayer is no different.
In Moving Mountains, bestselling author John Eldredge (Wild at Heart, Killing Lions) gives a master class in effective prayer that will change the way you pray, and the results you get from it. In short, Eldredge shows how our life with God is a partnership in a shared mission. And in a partnership, everybody does some work.
For anyone who has ever wondered why their prayers don't seem to be working, Moving Mountains will not only answer your questions: it will reshape your prayer life into a fulfilling--and effective--partnership with Most High.
John Eldredge is an author, a counsellor, and teacher. He is also president of Ransomed Heart, a ministry devoted to helping people discover the heart of God, recover their own heart in his love, and learn to live in his Kingdom. He is also the author of numerous books, including Epic, Waking the Dead, Wild at Heart, and Desire, and co-author of Captivating and The Sacred Romance.
John grew up in the suburbs of Los Angeles (which he hated), and spent his boyhood summers on his grandfather's cattle ranch in eastern Oregon (which he loved). John met his wife Stasi in high school (in drama class). But their romance did not begin until they each came to faith in Christ, after high school. John earned his undergraduate degree in Theatre, and directed a theatre company in Los Angeles for several years before moving to Colorado with Focus on the Family, where he taught at the Focus on the Family Institute.
John earned his master's degree in Counselling from Colorado Christian University, under the direction of Larry Crabb and Dan Allender. He worked as a counselor in private practice before launching Ransomed Heart in 2000. John and Stasi live in Colorado Springs with their three sons.
While all of this is factually true, it somehow misses describing an actual person. He loves the outdoors passionately, especially living in the Rocky Mountains, and all beauty, Shakespeare, bow hunting, a good cigar, anything having to do with adventure, poetry, March Madness, working in the shop, fly fishing, classic rock, the Tetons, fish tacos, George MacDonald, green tea, buffalo steaks, dark chocolate, wild and open places, horses running, and too much more to name. He also uses the expression "far out" way too much.
