Book Review: Radical Prayer by Manny Mill

From the Back Cover:

When you pray “Hallowed be thy name,” big things happen.
Many of us pray with little heart, little faith, and little expectation. This is not how we were taught to pray.
In Radical Prayer, Manny Mill describes the power that filled his life and ministry when he started praying boldly and persistently for God to be glorified in all things, and he teaches us to do the same.
When we pray this way, heaven crashes into earth. We see greater obedience, more love, and powerful salvation. Radical Prayer invites us to see what can happen when we pray as we ought.
Today's troubled times require replacing religious and comfortable Christianity with a faith narrative infused by a prayer life that connects heaven to earth. Such a prayer life will ignite a radical faith.—Dr. Samuel Rodriguez, president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference

About the Author

MANNY MILL is chief executive officer of Koinonia House® National Ministries (KHNM), which works to connect Christian inmates to the local church. Manny is a former inmate himself who was transformed by Jesus, as recounted in Radical Redemption. He is also a husband, father, grandfather and graduate of Wheaton College. HAROLD SMITH is the president and CEO of Christianity Today International. BARBARA MILL is a speaker, writer, and the operations director for Koinonia House.


My Review:

Radical Prayer by Manny Mill is an easy to read book full of wisdom from testimonies and scripture. Manny Mill exhorts his readers to learn what radical prayer life is like when you pray "Hallowed be thy name..." Manny Mill does a great job of pulling the reader into the pages of his book and leaving them encouraged to walk in biblical prayer with proper understanding and acknowledgement of who God is and who we are. Quotes that stood out to me are "A posture of surrender encourages true worship" and "There are no appointments to be made. We have an immediate audience at any time." I recommend this book to anyone who wants a deeper relationship with God through worship and prayer.

Book Review: Girls Slimline Bible NLT from Tyndale House Publishers




From the Publisher:

This adorable edition of God’s Word for girls features the easy-to-understand New Living Translation text with a soft-fur, bright-neon LOVE design and silver glittery lining. The BOLD FAITH design on the back cover encourages girls to live out their faith in ways that bring God glory.

This hardcover deluxe edition also features purple page edges, neon orange ribbon marker, special presentation page, 8 pages of full-color maps, and a 53-page dictionary/concordance to help locate passages on various topics.

The New Living Translation text is excellent for young readers because it is so clear and they can understand what they are reading! When they can read and understand God’s Word, God can work in their hearts!

My Review:

The Girls Slimline Bible NLT (New Living Translation) from Tyndale House Publishers is exactly what the title says. Its a slimline Bible which means thin pages but what this slimline Bible has that many slimline Bibles do not is a reference section including 53 page dictionary/concordance and 8 pages of full color maps. The cover is amazing. The cover is hardbound wrapped with fuzzy fabric printed the word "LOVE" and a hard glittery edge. On the back cover there is a cross with the words "Bold Faith." The cover feels more durable than any other hardbound Bible that I own. Although the pages are thin, I would feel comfortable giving an early elementary school age girl this Bible and not needing to worry about the condition of the book. The purple page edging compliments the girl touch. Inside the cover is hotpink page with a cross outline and the scripture "Because of Christ and our faith in Him, we can now come boldly and confidently into God's presence. Ephesians 3:12" Also inside the cover is a page for dedication including name, from, date, note. I really like how this book looks when it is open. The purple page edging against the hot pink inside cover and glittery edge beautifully shouts "GIRL." I would not hesitate to buy this Bible for my daughter or buy it as a gift for a girl of any age who needs a durable Bible.
