Reviews - What do customers think about Too Busy Not to Pray: Slowing Down to Be With God?

It sat on the shelf for 22 years until....  Mar 30, 2010
Yea, I picked this book from the bookshelf in our basement last night and read the first chapter. I also did the study questions listed in the back. Several things stood out. One was the quote 'If the Holy Spirit has...', the other was some of the anecdotes and finally the story of Moses/ Joshua and the Amalekites. I found myself asking... Can I claim these do they apply to everyone who reads? I'll close by saying that I was VERY encouraged by doing the study questions. I was inspired to put together a prayer/perception/response flow chart.
Prayer Life Transformed  Mar 5, 2010
Really good book. Unwrapped a lot of the mystery surrounding prayer and illustrates how prayer actually works.
Practical and easy to read  Feb 19, 2010
This is an excellent book, practical rather than academic or theological. Easy to read, it includes many illustrations and personal experiences of the author. Helpful for understanding prayer better and for knowing how to pray.
Fantastic!  Nov 2, 2009
I started reading this book because life is too busy! I am reading it for the second time now. This book has changed my life and my prayer life! I definitely recommend it.
Chapter 3 is worth more than the price of the book:)  Sep 19, 2009
This was my first experience reading Bill Hybel's work and it won't be my last. While his writing style is not as engaging to me as that of a Max Lucado or Frederick Buechner, I think that Hybel's instruction and guidance made it one of the best Christian books that I've read. It covers many questions that people have about how to pray, as well as, how people can get off track with their understanding of prayer and it's purpose for our lives.

Power Chapter: "In my head I have always believed in God's omnipotence...But too often this belief hasn't registered where it really counts--in my heart (p. 31)." In chapter 3, Hybels shares his findings from studying God's power and omnipotence. He broke it down into "God's Power over Nature," "God's Power over Circumstances," "God's Power over Hearts," and "The Same Yesterday, Today, and Forever." After going into depth about God's power, he closes by reminding us that God, like a good father, doesn't want us to think we have to flog ourselves, begging for hours to get Him to pay attention; instead, God is "listening very closely, hoping" to hear our voices...that God actually takes great pleasure in meeting our needs.

Another strong aspect of Hybel's book is the way he approaches misconceptions in how we think about responding to the Spirit's promptings that come through a more disciplined prayer life. I think this part of the book is especially helpful because it addresses not just how to talk to God, but also how to hear and know better when it is God speaking in our lives. My favorite line in the whole book: "It never fails--in late January or early February when the Midwest goes into the deep freeze, I feel a strange but compelling calling to start a church in Honolulu." Me too, Brother. Me too;).

I highly recommend this book to new believers and those who consider themselves mature in faith but want to develop deeper more powerful prayer lives.
