When the opportunity came to read Everything the Bible Says About Prayer I was looking forward to reading the scriptures about prayer complied by Keith Wall. I’m eager to grow in my prayer life and understanding and application of scripture. I found I was somewhat disappointed with Everything the Bible Says About Prayer and really struggled with it especially in the early chapters. I found the switching of translations and paraphrases with every verse very distracting and the reading didn’t flow well. The author uses many different versions including the NLT, ESV, NIV, God’s Word, HCSB, NASB, The Message, NKJV, NCV, and AMP. When I encounter people jumping from one translation to another a red flag goes up and I’m concerned that scripture is being manipulated and not accurately translating God’s word. As I read more of the book, perhaps I got more used to switching between many translations. There were a few chapters that I liked including An Alley Amid Adversity, Give God the Glory, Timeless Tutors and the Appendix Thoughts on Prayer by Classic Christian Writers. At the beginning of each chapter Keith Wall gives a brief introduction about what the topic of the chapter and how the reader might apply the verses to their lives and some of the introductions were helpful. I would have appreciated it, if at the beginning of the book, the author had addressed the reader who may not know Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and given the plan of salvation. I would neither recommend nor discourage someone from reading Everything the Bible Says About Prayer, but I would want the reader to be aware of the use of many different translations and paraphrases used throughout this book. A complimentary copy of this book was provided to me by Bethany House to read and review. I was under no obligation to give a favorable review in exchange for this book.
GOOD BOOK TO READ, GIVES DIRECTION FOR PRAYER, WITH SCRIPTURE VERSES AS WELL.***I LIKE THE VARIOUS TRANSLATIONS USED AS IT MAKES IT EASIER TO UNDERSTAND GOD AND TO PRAY EFFECTIVELY. YOU MAY HAVE TO READ SLOWLY AS HE USES MANY TRANSLATIONS TO ENJOY THE FULL MEANING AND THE DIRECTION THE AUTHOR IS LEADING YOU.. GOOD JOB THE WATERWALKER
