Book Review: Everything the Bible Says About Prayer

The title pretty well sums up this book on prayer.  While  not an exhaustive reference on prayer, this 126 page paperback contains the major Scriptures found on prayer grouped according to categories in chapters.  Some of these chapter headings include "Praying with Boldness, Elements of Effective Prayer, and Prayer in Times of Hardship and Heartache."  Each chapter begins with a short explanation and then the passages are quoted in various Bible versions with just a few notes here and there.
There is also a small appendix in the back of the book called "Thoughts on Prayer by Classic Christian Writers."  Spurgeon, Moody, Murray and others are quoted here for the reader's benefit.
This book is nicely arranged and would possibly make a nice gift for someone.  It is one of those books you can pick up and read quickly or just read the chapters that interest you.  While not anything spectacular, I would say I liked the layout better than the average compilation of Scripture passages around a common theme type book.
5 out of 5 stars
I received a free copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for a fair and honest review.
