Reviews - What do customers think about Prayer's Apprentice?

Good devotional on prayer  Dec 26, 2004
Unlike the previous reviewer, I did not find the author's honest glimpses into his life as whiny. It's refreshing to hear a Christian admit to his failings and struggles in the faith. The prayers were very insightful, as were the author's explanation and elaboration of them. It helped me to see prayer through the eyes of a diverse group of people and traditions. Because it's to be used as a devotional, the weekly chapters are small. (I would have liked to read more on each prayer.) I will definitely look for more books by this author.
5 Stars for the Prayers, 1 Star for the Author  May 12, 2004
Prayers Apprentice is three books in one: a book of prayers by famous Christians from history such as St. Patrick, Augustine,Thomas Merton, C.S. Lewis, etc., mini-bio's of those whose prayers are printed and a sort of journaling of the author of how he finds and uses the prayers in his own life. I enjoyed and learned from the prayers and mini-bio's but the whininess and self-involvement of the author grated on my nerves. Here is an upper middle class white male who is healthy, works at an office, has a wife and healthy kids who still says, "in the past couple of days, since we've added a puppy to our household, with all the demands it has been harder to pray." He can't make up his mind between being a pastor or a writer. Has he never noticed that bookstore shelves already groan under the weight of thousands of books by pastors who are also writers? He feels guilty that his life is too busy as he bathes the puppy, helps his son with homeschool lessons and flies to a festival on faith and writing. Jeez... Even when he is relaxing on his deck on the weekend he feels anxious and far from God. When he sends off his manuscript for publishing that sets off another anxious time of ego tail chasing. I got the impression that this man spends so much time in his own head he should go on a few Buddhist retreats. If you read this book in the midst of true crisis - death, illness, poverty, violence done to you or someone you love - then the commentary by Mr. Jones will irk you. I suggest the prayers and biographies be the only part you read.
