Summary

Multi-award winning spirituality writer Philip Yancey is loved throughout the world for his honest, insightful and inspirational writing. Prayer: Does It Make Any Difference? carries all the hallmarks of classic Yancey, a journalist by training.  

His quest to unravel the mysteries of prayer is like the journal of a fellow traveller: questioning, challenging, lamenting the unexplainable and rejoicing in the discovery of awesome insights. His journey is beautifully illustrated with moving true stories drawn from around the world.  

Prayer: Does It Make Any Difference? tackles the following questions: What is prayer? What difference does it make? Why and how should we pray? What about unanswered prayer? How should we understand prayer for physical healing?  

Focusing on such a universal theme, this is potentially Yancey's biggest work yet. To date, his books have sold over 14 million copies and have been translated into 25 languages.

A discussion on prayer

As always Yancey approaches his subject as a faithful sceptic. I found this book a little too generic.

Technically the recording level was way too low. I had to play it full volume wth no other background noise.

Honest and thought provoking.

The first book I have listened to all the way through as an audiobook. Larry Black brings the text to life. Yancey doesn't dodge the issues and gives much food for thought and discussion. I feel I have a slightly better handle on a mysterious activity...prayer.
