A Praying Life

Connecting with God In A Distracting World
By: Paul Miller

Book Reivew

This is a hard book to read for a good reason. It is hard to read the book for a long period of time without stopping and praying. Paul Miller deals both in the theological realm and the practical, and he encapsulates the normal American Christian way of looking at prayer. As you experience this, you begin to see where your American Christianity has blinded you to what could be a vibrant relationship with your Master, and you long to quickly remedy that. The friend who recommended it to me said, “It is not one of those books on prayer that make you feel guilty when you read it.” I really didn’t believe him. But, he was right.

Naturally there are a few things in the book that I don’t agree with, and as we should do with any book, we should read with discernment. One notable thing that bothered me is that Paul Miller quotes N. T. Wright (once I think). I have not been able to study N. T. Wright's positions personally, but I have heard several others concerned with his New Perspective on Paul.

Book Reviews

I am nuts about books. I read on all kinds of topics. I attempt to review each book I read for the sake of my own enrichment as well as conversation starters with others.

Pastoral Ministry

God has called me to be a pastor, and occasionally I have some pastoral thoughts I like to share.

You never know what you will find in an attic! Usually there is a hodgepodge of things buried under dust.
