"Talking to men for God is a great thing, but talking to God for men is greater still" E.M. Bounds.
"Prayer itself is an art which only the Holy Spirit can teach us. Pray for prayer. Pray until you can really pray" Charles H. Spurgeon.
They are stories about people who have changed communities, about prayer groups that have changed cities, about prisons that have experienced massive revivals, about men and women who have quit their jobs and changed their lives in order to live for Jesus. If you are looking for something to inspire you, to get the wind of the Holy Spirit blowing again in your life, this is the book for you.

The books that speak to me the most are not the ones that are a good story, but rather the ones that leave me with a sense of purpose and a desire to get up and change something in myself. Although this is a fictional story, it is based during a time of history that is true and therefore the accounts are believable and realistic. In a time and culture where life takes all that I have, I cannot help but think that Paul and the apostles would be sorry for us. In that time, each person lived for God, with all that they were. They did not have much in the way of possessions, nothing to do but work hard and minister to others. All in all I was convicted and saddened that the "story" of Christians has changed so much.
I was incredibly touched by this book. It is well written, its realism is undeniable, and its power very real. I can find nothing to critique, from cover to cover, this book will grace my shelf for many years to come.
