I was really surprised by how much I enjoyed this audiobook within minutes of listening. It's a comprehensive Bible study on prayer and a quality novel without compromising on biblical truth or entertainment value. Not an easy balance to achieve. A sound use of Scripture without it becoming "preachy". It does focus on a marriage about to dissolve, so young singles may not feel so connected with the storyline. I'm dropping one star for the painfully obvious inserts of American, patriotic, military, propaganda that's completely unnecessary to the book. Some parts by the end were becoming a tad predictable but didn't dampen my overall enjoyment of the story. Normally I find male narrators performing female parts to be a little oddly done. The narrator here did a better than reasonable job for the numerous female parts. He certainly did a good enough job to engage me, get me teary and at times surprised by humour. He may not be the world's best narrator but he did very well indeed and didn't compromise the value of the book.
It's been 3 years since the release of this film I'm still recommending it. I think it's the fact that everybody is so able to relate to the main characters that makes it powerful, with the message to never underestimate prayer.
I purchased this book to give to a friend who is facing a challenging time. The story really focuses on the power of prayer and encourages one to step up their prayer life. My friend really enjoyed the gift and I would recommend this book.
Have you ever been moved by some epic adventure tale which narrates a hero's sacrifice? Or are you more moved by an individual's willingness to fight a battle, sacrificing their life and security for others? Either way- this novel was amazing and the film was moving too. The novel tells the story of how prayer- when intentional, disciplined, earnest and strategic- can have the power to change others; change circumstances but most importantly change you! I'm not usually into these narratives but loved this one when I was bored and away with my Mum on a summer's holiday. With nothing else to read, or view, I picked this up and noticed it was from Koorong. It shows how prayer as a starting point, end point, and middle can provide you with the rich relationship you might have once craved with God. It also shows how, when praying earnestly, things start to change! I've now bought this for my house cleaner and neighbour. Praying that this might lead them back to a rich, revolutionary and deep walk with God. When we pray, anything can happen!!
Want a text that reminds you of the dual fold purpose if prayer? This is it! Prayer changes situations and it also changes us! Amidst conflict and danger, the power of God is at work- and the best place to be? At your knees, before God, interceding for the situations around us and connected to us. Read this book!
