Christian Book Previews.com4 Stars Out Of 5February 21, 2006Christian Book Previews.comAnd prayer with an attitude is what Chris Tiegreen promotes in Violent Prayer. Tiegreen's rousing prose and insightful comments leave us eager to expect God to advance His kingdom in answer to our prayers. Tiegreen points out our wrong assumptions, especially in discriminating between submission to God's will and a lack of faith in prayer. He promotes spiritual warfare while decrying the excesses of the movement. Because of his background as a pastor, church planter, missionary, writer, and editor, Tiegreen offers a depth and clarity that is often lacking in America-centric preaching. For instance, he points out that Jesus' instructing us to pray "Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, in earth as it is in heaven," can in itself be a guideline as to what God's will is in a situation. Will kids be shooting up in heaven? Then it's not wrong to pray and work toward its end here on earth. Is it God's will that a tyrant slaughter Christians in his homeland? It's not going to be happening in heaven, so it shouldn't be here. Violent Prayer arouses excitement and a sense of urgency, but it has a few weaknesses. At times, Tiegreen makes assertions about Scripture without giving references to back it up. He would strengthen his argument with offering a few verses that support his declarations. For instance, he claims that most of the recorded prayers in Scripture are about the expansion of Christ's kingdom, but he gives no references. In another example, Tiegreen asserts that the authors of the New Testament blame the devil and his minions for many of the world's problems, but he doesn't give references. I would have liked to look some of these up. Not all of us are as knowledgeable in the Scriptures as he is. Also, Tiegreen attributes many problems in relationships to spiritual forces rather than to personal sin. This seems to be an over-emphasis from spiritual warfare proponents, perhaps in reaction to those who neglect the spiritual forces at war in the world.
