Leader’s Edge (Spiritual Formation)
John Eldredge. Publisher: Nelson Books, 2016.
Often our prayers seem to be met with silence or don’t appear to change anything. This can lead to disappointment or even despair in the face of our ongoing battles and unmet longings—especially when we don’t know if we’re doing something wrong or if some prayers just don’t work. Eldredge confronts these issues directly by offering a hopeful approach to prayer that is effective, relational, and rarely experienced by most Christians. He invites us to engage in the kind of prayers that can move God’s heart as well as the mountains before us.
