The Barber Who Wanted to Pray

The Barber Who Wanted to Pray

$21.99

Hardback

A beautifully illustrated tale from R. C. Sproul that teaches children to pray from the Bible. One day Martin Luther's barber asks him how to pray, and his life is changed.



- Publisher

This imaginative tale, based on a true story, begins one evening with Mr. McFarland leading family devotions. When his daughter asks him how she should pray, Mr. McFarland shares a 500-year-old story—a story about a barber and his famous customer.

Master Peter is a barber well known to all in his village. One day, when Martin Luther the Reformer walks into his shop, the barber musters up the courage to ask the outlawed monk how to pray. Dr. Luther responds by writing a letter to the barber (a letter that we know today as the book, A Simple Way to Pray!). The barber’s life is changed as he encounters a model for prayer by using the Lord’s Prayer, the Ten Commandments, and the Apostles’ Creed.

R. C. Sproul’s beautifully illustrated story will engage children and help them learn to pray according to the Bible. Dr. Sproul’s unique gift for explaining complex truths will make this a treasured book to be returned to time after time—a delight for both children and their parents!

Worth Passing On
5 stars By Racheal, Jul 08 2014
The Barber Who Wanted To Pray is a beautiful book based on the true account of a barber who happened to have Martin Luther come in for a shave one day, and while there he asked the same question Jesus' disciples had...how do we pray? Not just repeat pre-written prayers, but how do we really pray? Through the ten commandments, the Lord's Prayer and the Apostles Creed as a stepping stone, this book opens the door to meaningful and thankful prayer to our Father. This book is both beautifully written and illustrated and one I'd want to keep beyond the years that children enjoy picture books!
