Item description for God Is Not A Vending Machine by Marvin D. Hinten...

Most of us are much better at supporting the idea of prayer than we are at praying. This book combines Scriptural insights on pleasing God in prayer with practical insights on making prayer effective.

Making prayer effective, however, doesn't mean “getting what we want.” Hinten tells how to use prayer to move from a desire for what we want to a desire for what God wants. And, in the “Putting Prayer Into Practice” section at the end of each chapter, he suggests specific techniques and topics to help readers meet their goal of not just reading about prayer, but praying. Best of all, while this book is intellectually stimulating, it is also eminently readable, with clear examples and an engaging sense of humor.

Reviews - What do customers think about God Is Not A Vending Machine?

You'll Never Look At Prayer The Same Way!  Jan 13, 2009
This is a great little (128 pages) book with a lot of profound statements in it. Best of all, it reinforces - time and time again - how God is not to be used solely to give us everything we ask for all the time. In other words, He's not a vending machine where you put your money in (say a prayer) and instantly you get what you want.

Author Marv Hinten reminds of these truths, and provides us with suggestions on what might better please God. Praying more for what God wants than we want, is a good start, according to this author. Tough to argue with that.

The book is written lovingly, not in a condescending manner. It's anything but dry, too. There are 19 chapters and they only average about six pages each so it's a fast read.

I really think this is one of the best and important "Christian books" I've ever read. Not to use a cliche, but I think it's a "must-have" for anyone who prays.
