In Matthew 21, Jesus tells us, "If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer." However, most of the time we pray, we only ask for the small things. We're afraid to ask for what we really want, or to be passionate in our petitions. In The Circle Maker, Mark Batterson introduces you to the possibility of a deeper, more passionate, persistent, and more intimate prayer life. Sharing powerful insights from the the true legend of Honi the circle maker, a first-century Jewish sage whose bold prayer ended a drought and saved a generation, you will learn a new way to pray. Discover the power of bold prayer and even bolder faith in God's promises.

SPANISH BIO: Mark Batterson, autor de El hacedor de circulos y Con un leon en medio de un foso, es pastor principal de National Community Church, en Washington, D.C., cuya labor esta enfocada en alcanzar a las nuevas generaciones.

In his latest book, Washington, D.C., area pastor-author Batterson (In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day) says his method of talking to God has the power to revolutionize the way you prayand he just might be right. Yet this method isnt packaged with hipster edge or a 10-step strategy. Batterson uses timeless knowledge and tales that predate Jesus to urge the reader to simply drop to his knees. Beginning with the Jewish legend of Honi, who drew a circle around himself and prayed for rain, Batterson examines the answered prayers of several circle makers. The circle metaphor is applied loosely throughout the book (e.g., walking in prayer circles, praying in a group, praying repeatedly for a concern), making it accessible in multiple situations. At times Battersons excitement manifests as cutesy bumper stickerlike phrases, and he spends much of the book recounting his own churchs miraculous growth. But readers will fall for his intensity and encouragement to pray tenaciously. The unearthed technique will have readers drawing prayer circles around everything from buildings and news to their own hopes and dreams. Agent: Esther Fedorkevich. (Jan.)
