Book Review: A Praying Life by Paul E Miller

A Praying LifeA Praying Life by Paul E. Miller

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Own on Kindle.

I had borrowed this book from the church library, but downloaded it for Kindle (before I had one ... hooray for Kindle for PC!)

I enjoyed this.  It was an encouraging read in an area that I could particularly improve my walk in.  The first half of the book is a theology of prayer: why? what use? who?  The second half of the book is more on the practicals.

Miller does a nice job of interspersing real life experience of the daily needs into the text.

The practical recommendations were helpful to an extent.  Here his text leans a little too far toward "Jesus talks to me" in places for me.  I do appreciate his emphasis on learning the Word as a means for interaction with the Lord and a "vocabulary" for conviction regarding our sin and need of a savior.

Overall, this was a very helpful, readable book for the Christian wishing to enrich his prayer life.
