PRAYER: DOES IT MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE? carries all the hallmarks of classic Yancey, a journalist by training. His quest to unravel the mysteries of prayer reads as the journal of a fellow traveller: questioning, challenging, lamenting the unexplainable and rejoicing in the discovery of awesome insights. His journey is beautifully illustrated with moving true stories drawn from around the world. PRAYER: DOES IT MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE? tackles the following questions: What is prayer? What difference does it make? Why and how should we pray? What about unanswered prayer? How should we understand prayer for physical healing? Focusing on such a universal theme, this is potentially Yancey's biggest book yet. To date, his books have sold over 14 million copies, and have been translated into 25 languages. His first book with Hodder, SOUL SURVIVOR, sold over 90,000 copies in just five years.Read Less

Philip Yancey has written a book on prayer that is not intimidating or guilt-producing. He explores every aspect of prayer as one who is learning and experiencing prayer in his own life. His ideas are thought-provoking and cause you to explore your own ideas and experiences from a new direction. It is not a quick read. You need time to think about each chapter. I took 3 months to read it but I really enjoyed the study and recommended it to my husband's Promise Keepers group and they are using it for their breakfast meetings.

Inspiring our weekly Small Group
Our Small Group Bible Study had finished a book by Max Lucado, Facing Your Giants and wanted a new study book that would deepen our relationship with God. Someone suggested this book to one of our members. Though a very different read from the Lucado book, this book is challenging us in positive ways to review our relationship with God and also giving suggestions for how to do that though the gift of a prayer life. So far we are all really appreciating Philip Yancey and a very different style.
