It was obvious from the start (the Introduction)that this book was going to be different than many of the same topic. To often, books on prayer focus on types of prayer and the theology behind them. This book gives more practical application on "how to" pray. It is obvious that the author is grounded biblically, historically, practically, and (most importantly)spiritually.
