Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
For the sizable segment of Christians who see evangelism as their primary religious duty, the Jabez books are motivational literature par excellence: Wilkinson's The Prayer of Jabez has sold over six million copies since Multnomah released it last year. Carlson's adaptation for middle-graders resembles its parent in package and theology but not in style. To children who daily pray the "Jabez prayer" a Bible verse requesting blessing and protection from sin (1 Chronicles 4:10) the authors promise "incredibly special" results, "adventure, excitement, and lots of fun." But nothing is concrete. Sin is doing "something wrong." Blessings turn out to be neither material nor relational, but evangelistic: increased opportunities to tell classmates about Christ. The authors' attempts at friendly conversation often seem condescending ("You know what?"), wordy ("kind of") or silly ("huh?"). Age targeting is inconsistent: early chapters may strike middle readers as babyish, while Chapter 4 is aimed squarely at teenagers. God is masculine, and most illustrations verbal or visual also feature males. Nevertheless, with its abundant line drawings, pull quotes, and sidebars, the 4" 6" volume makes an attractively packaged addition to a line of books currently enjoying unparalleled blessing. Ages 8-12. (July) FYI: Tommy Nelson is simultaneously publishing Wilkinson and Carlson's board book The Prayer of Jabez for Little Kids ($5.99 ages 2-5 ISBN 0-8499-7943-9), illus. by Alexi Natchev (not credited in the book). The picture book The Prayer of Jabez for Young Hearts by Wilkinson and Robert Suggs, illus. by Sergio Martinez, and the devotional The Prayer of Jabez Devotions for Kids: Living Big for God areplanned for October publication.

    Fine Adaptation of The Prayer of Jabez for 7-11 Year Olds

    If you are like me, you remember with pleasure the illustrated stories about the Bible that you read in Sunday School. They helped make the lessons come to life. In this book, Bruce Wilkinson has assembled a youth-oriented version of his best seller in the finest sense of that Sunday School tradition. My estimate is that the book will be most helpful to 7-11 year olds. You could also use the material to tell the basic story to younger children, while sharing the illustrations. The book is filled with fun illustrations, examples that are relevant to young people (wanting to be a ballerina, playing in the NFL, surfing the Web, electronic devices, and young people successfully doing God's work in bringing other young people to God), and many sidebars about biblical figures (David, Hannah, Moses, Joshua, Caleb, Gideon, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego). In all other ways, the book is the same as The Prayer of Jabez. As much as the Bible teaches me, I find that I learn even more by hearing about the interpretations that others make of the Bible. Those interpretations are most beneficial when they include witnessing one's own experiences. Bruce Wilkinson has provided us with many soulful insights from 30 years of reciting a little-noticed prayer in this inspiring book. One reason that it is nice to hear what others say about the Bible is that some of them read Hebrew, which I do not. Knowing what the original text said should provide more clues to its precise meaning. Mr. Wilkinson has provided many insights from the Hebrew texts to help us understand what the translations mean. The Prayer of Jabez is found in 1 Chronicles 4:10 following a brief introduction of Jabez in 1 Chronicles 4:9. This text is in the middle of a long list of about 500 Hebrew names beginning with Adam in providing a geneology. The casual Bible reader might never notice this material. Since there is so little text, the plain meaning of what is found here can certainly be confusing. 'Jabez' means 'pain' in Hebrew. Jabez was named this by his mother 'Because I bore him in pain.' Since almost all babies bring pain, it is hard to know exactly what was different about Jabez, if anything. In this book, there is a nice emphasis on the special problems a young person would have if his name was Pain. Jabez is remembered for having his prayer answered. The prayer was: 'Oh, that You would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory, that Your hand would be with me, and that You would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain!' Mr. Wilkinson provides several perspectives on this prayer that added much to my understanding of the Scripture. First, Mr. Wilkinson interprets this as meaning that the person praying is asking to play a bigger role in achieving God's purposes. That was a new thought for me. I tend to feel that each of us is kept pretty busy trying to do God's will in whatever roles we already have. How can we do more? Obviously, only with God's help. By taking on even larger roles, we probably move closer to a state of humility by knowing that we cannot possibly succeed without Divine guidance and assistance. So what seems like a prideful thing actually turns out to be the opposite. What is your reaction to that? Second, I was startled a few years ago to hear a group of rabbis and ministers talk about how the traditional concept of the moral life was to never be tempted. I feel tempted all of the time, and overcome temptations only after sincere struggles. Mr. Wilkinson points out that the best way to avoid evil is not to be tempted in the first place. 'Without temptation, we will not sin.' So this text encouraged me to ask even more for being kept away from evil. Naturally, the Lord's Prayer does that, but this important point had been partially lost on me until I read this book. Beyond those Biblical insights, I also learned from Mr. Wilkinson's experiences. He takes on big tasks, uses the Jabez prayer, and keeps track of how t
