    Great books on prayer!

    This E.M. Bounds collection is great. I have highlighted and taken many notes throughout my reading. The active table of contents makes it convenient to choose what book you would like to start with.

    A must read

    This book literally changed my life. You can't help but get closer and deeper to God by reading it and applying the principals daily. The chapters are short for a reason. It is so you can soak up every word and let God have his way. Every believer in Jesus Christ should own it. Love it!!!
