Batterson has a compelling ideology...pray in a circle, be persistent, be bold. I am all for this type of prayer, we need to be bolder, to trust God more. A prayer circle is a discipline, like a rosary or anything else. However, there are deep nuances of name it and claim it theology all over the place. And Batterson does a poor job of reconciling the tough realities of prayer not be answered, or things actually getting worse. If you are looking for some simplistic inspiration to pray more and be bolder, this is for you, but if you are looking for anything comprehensive, look in another direction.
This book has encouraged me to pray more fervently with direction and conviction. Mark Batterson helps me discipline myself in my prayer life, and he does it with a little humor and with tools to improve my prayers. I
will probably use this for a book study in the near future.
