A Book for the Bathtub

Suzanne Uncategorized

No, that’s not true. This is the kind of book that should definitely not be taken into a bathtub. This is a book that you will want to sit down with a good highlighter because you will be underlining so many profound insights.


It’s Philip Yancey’s latest: Prayer. Does It Make Any Difference? (Zondervan). A brilliant writer and reflective thinker, Yancey’s examines the questions we all have about prayer. In his trademark style, Yancey writes from a heart filled with questions. He wonders about prayer, too, and has embarked on a study to explore this mysterious and compelling topic. For example: If God knows everything, what’s the point of prayer? Why do so many prayers go unanswered? Does prayer really help with physical healing?

This book might be Yancey’s best. Any reader’s prayer life will be touched.
