A Book Review of Taking Hold of God: Reformed and Puritan Perspectives on Prayer. Edited by Joel R. Beeke and Brian G. Najapfour

When I see a book on prayer, it is usually and immediately followed with the Spirit’s conviction.  I consider how long it has been since I last prayed or how shortsighted and local they have been.  I feel overwhelmed with guilt and rightly so.  I don’t usually buy that book.  I, instead, veer towards the theology section to catch up on the latest arguments for God’s complete sovereignty in salvation.  It is not that there is a lack of desire to learn to pray, but if only reading the title of a book on prayer convicts me then what will reading it in full do?


This book review is by Chadd M. Sheffield, a student at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky.
