This is an excellent book, but don't waste your money on the enhanced edition. The enhanced edition adds a series of videos just for the sake of video. They add nothing to what is wriiten--and they are definitely not worth paying 50% more. Get the eBook, but don't waste $5.00 on the so-called "Enhanced Edition."

This book, like none other in recent memory has shaken and awakened my soul to continue to pray bold prayers, and believe for greater miracles of God's favor and grace in my life and the lives of those I lead. I have read and been convicted and inspired by the great timeless classics on prayer. I say without reservation or hesitation Mark Batterson's "The Circle Maker" has just moved to the top of that list! I have read and recommended a lot of books to my friends. This one I am buying and giving to my church and my pastor friends. Watch out God, a lot of folks are going to be drawing a lot more circles in the sands of human need. Thank you Mark, and thank God for "The Circle Maker." Pastor Amos Dodge Capital Church

If you are looking for a book to help you better understand how to pray and what matters most when it comes to prayer this is a must read. I know I will keep going back to it. Knowing what to pray for and understanding unanswered prayer is also something that can be helpful. Not sure if it is anything I didn't already know but it can help to see how prayer has worked for Mark in his life and all the remarkable ways HE has answered them.

This book will encourage, challenge and motivate every reader that reads it. This is book is a must read. I'd also recommend that you buy "When God Stopped Keeping Score," which takes an inspiring look at the power of God and forgiveness. It too is on sale here on BN as a paperback and e-book.

Without a doubt, the BEST book I have ever read on prayer. I believe this book will have as much impact on prayer as The Purpose Drive Life book had on helping people find their purpose. Without doubt this book will be a best seller. Nothing else I have ever read on prayer is so simple yet so powerful. The book put hope, drive and real purpose back into my prayer life. The author helps you understand how simple yet how powerful your prayer life can be. He helps you realize that God is interested moving and making things happen in our life, in this world. This is a MUST READ for every Christian.

This is a wonderful book, Mark Batterson's insights and testimonies give greater understanding of prayer. It's not about getting what we want from the Lord. It's about growing our relationship with the Lord and trusting in what He knows we need to learn.

"Would knowing that your prayers will be answered change the way you pray? In The Circle Maker, Pastor Mark Batterson shares powerful insights from the true legend of Honi the Circle Maker, a believer who prayed miracles would happen to the people of God—and then they fell from the heavens like rain. Honi and Mark Batterson will help you bring your God-given dreams into being through bold, tenacious prayers that honor God and make the impossible come true. Description: According to Pastor Mark Batterson in his book, The Circle Maker, “Drawing prayer circles around our dreams isn’t just a mechanism whereby we accomplish great things for God. It’s a mechanism whereby God accomplishes great things in us.” My thoughts on the book.... An intriguing thought... drawing circles around your prayers. What could it mean? I have been praying for people and things in my life for years. Sometimes I see results; sometimes I don't. I keep on praying. Why? Who else would I turn to for help but to the almighty and all powerful God who loves me so. Still, there is a desire to be more purposeful and effective in my prayers. The Circle Maker is about dreaming and praying for things bigger than you ever have. It's about not limiting God. It's about miracles. This is the most exciting book on prayer that I've ever read. I'm going to keep reading it and reading it until I really get it. Our family is very involved with the Joplin Tornado Relief and Rebuilding effort with Joplin Family Worship Center. We have prayed and made ourselves available for God's use. He has done amazing things. He has given us a vision for even bigger things. I'm going to circle those visions in prayer and watch to see what the Lord will do. Truly, we will say yes to the bless! I want to thank Mark Batterson and Zondervan for making this concept come alive to me in a bigger way than ever before. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me; but, God can do exceedingly abundantly more than I can think or ask. Truly, we will say yes to the bless! I consider this a must read book. I received this book from Zondervan in exchange for an honest review.

The Circle Maker is one of those books you want to read two or three times. Once you start reading the book, you don't want to put it down. Mark Batterson is one of the great authors and I was so impressed with this book, that I bought another copy for a friend. Mark inspires you do think big and believe that anything is possible with God. Since reading this book I look at things so much differently. This is a must read for everyone.

This has NOTHING to do with Christianity! It may claim to be, but no Christians I have known, gave God an ultimatum , or prayed in a circle. This sounds like witchcraft. I read to page 45 and stopped. Beware.
