Item description for The Kneeling Christian by Unknown Christian...

Overview
Synopsis:
Realizing that prayer remains mysterious and foreign to many Christians, the unknown Christian sets out to familiarize believers with the source of power available to them through prayer.

Description:
Since its first publication, The Kneeling Christian has helped hundreds of thousands of believers discover the key to God¿s treasure house of blessing. This classic book on prayer, written by "An Unknown Author" sometime before the 1930¿s, answers the most basic and often-asked questions Christians have about prayer:

"How shall I pray?"

"What is prayer?"

"Must I agonize?"

"Does God always answer prayer?"

"Who may pray?"

Prayer, though an essential part of Christian experience, remains mysterious to many believers. The author set about to familiarize Christians with the source of power available to them through prayer. According to The Kneeling Christian, "All real growth in the spiritual life--all victory over temptation, all confidence and peace in the presence of difficulties and dangers, all repose of spirit in times of great disappointment or loss, all habitual communion with God--depends on the practice of secret prayer."

This powerful, time-tested book points the way toward communion with God and all the life-changing benefits that derive from it.

Reviews - What do customers think about Kneeling Christian?

Solid book on prayer  Jan 10, 2006
Very basic, yet challenging and encouraging book on prayer. Highly recommended!
 
Life Changing!  Sep 24, 2005
This book was truly amazing! It totally changed my perception of prayer and showed me exactly what true prayer is. Although it is not a very large book, it contains a very large truth! It's a must read for all Christians!
 
It's ok...  May 4, 2004
There's some good information on prayer here. I wouldn't use this guide in a ministry but it's one of the better guides.
 
A classic, but a dated classic  Sep 9, 2003
This is an old classic whose premise is that the reason Christian fail to succeed spiritual is their failure to pray. It is the authors belief that most Christians have lost the wonder of their faith, that deep down inside they really do not believe we worship an omnipotent God who is capable of given us exceedingly abundantly above all we think and ask. The bottom line is this: do we believe God's Word is true?

The author has unwavering faith in the claims of Scripture. He believes that the scriptural pronouncements concerning prayer are to be taken literally. Our failure to do so is the root of the churches inefficiency and powerlessness in the world. In this, the author has hit the proverbial nail right on the head. The author is to be commended for stating that not only are we to pray, but that our prayers are to have meat on them. Do we really believe in an omnipotent God? Our prayer life betrays us.

Unfortunately, this book is written in a style that is difficult to read, peppered with undocumented illustrations, making it difficult for this reader to complete the book. It was very discouraging to read of these prayer warriors of almost mythical proportions with the authors underlying assumption that we too should be like them. Who were they? What is the documentation? Living in a far more cynical age, these questions need to be answered. Although the author specifically states that prayer is hard work, he seems to assume that if our faith was a great as these nameless missionaries we too would experience mountain moving prayer.

I could not help but contrast this attitude with the humanity portrayed in Bill Hybells books on prayer. With Hybells you see a flawed man discovering the power of prayer, with the Unknown Christian we are confronted with dozens of supersaints whom we must try to emulate.

There are better books out there. It may be a classic, but it is a dated classic.

 
The most influencial book on Prayer I've ever read  May 11, 2002
My title says it all. This small book is big on the theology of prayer. But it isn't written in a text book manner. Instead, this "unknown Christian" simply goes to the Scripture and points out to the reader how important prayer is to the life of a believer. The first chapter alone gets your attention. In it the author states that a person's greatest regret, once in heaven, will be to look back and wonder why he or she didn't pray more. When a person realizes how much can be gained by praying, it should astound us that we don't do it more.

This is one of the few books I own that is such a classic that I read it every year. It never grows old, because its message is truly timeless. I highly recommend it to new and older Christians of every persuasion!
