Publisher's Description

Relevant questions about prayer answered from the whole witness of Scripture

Praying is often the most common yet least understood practice of Christian spirituality. In 40 Questions About Prayer, scholar and teacher Joseph C. Harrod shares biblical insight on the nature and practice of Christian prayer. Harrod's emphasis on searching the Scriptures results in a trustworthy, practical guide to a vital aspect of Christian belief and behavior, equally appropriate for seminary courses, Bible studies, and personal understanding.

The accessible question-and-answer format of 40 Questions About Prayer allows readers to explore the issues they care most about, such as these:

• Does prayer change God’s mind?

• Does God hear the prayers of unbelievers?

• What does it mean to pray in Jesus's name?

• How does prayer affect evangelism, spiritual awakening, and revival?

• What does it mean to pray “without ceasing” (1 Thess. 5:17)?

• Do physical postures affect prayer?

Editorial Reviews

“Joseph Harrod draws from the riches of Scripture and the Christian tradition to help us to think deeply about prayer. Here is a helpful and stimulating book about prayer that will not only answer many of your questions but also enhance both theological discernment and practical devotion.” -- president, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary

“Joe Harrod’s 40 Questions About Prayer is faithful to Scripture, clearly written, and extremely helpful for Christians seeking to grow in their understanding and practice of prayer. I think many churches and ministry groups will find this book perfectly formatted for group discussions. Highly recommended!” -- Collin and Evelyn Aikman Professor of Biblical StudiesThe Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

"In 40 Questions About Prayer, Joe Harrod provides a sound and accessible resource for Christians who have questions about prayer. This fine book is anchored in Scripture and will be proven helpful for any Christian who wants to grow a prayerful life. As a pastor, I am excited about this excellent work and will recommend it for use in our church." -- lead pastor of Sojourn Church Midtown, Louisville, KY, president, Harbor Network.

“What air is to this terrestrial globe, so is prayer to the kingdom of God. It is vital for life in the kingdom, though if the truth be told, far too many of us wrestle with the discipline of prayer. When we should be wrestling in prayer, to use a Pauline image, we are wrestling just to be diligent and disciplined in praying. Joe Harrod’s study of prayer through the medium of 40 questions—surely this must be the first time that prayer has been discussed via such means—is an excellent reminder of prayer's necessity. May close study of it also make us, its readers, men and women who pray—and that with passion and assiduity!” -- chair and professor of church history, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

“Dr. Joe Harrod writes an amazing book on prayer! It is both practical and rich in depth. It answers so many of the questions that we are all asking to understand our call to pray. Dr. Harrod will warm your heart and challenge your mind, leading you to adore the Savior who invites you to call upon his great name!” -- senior pastor, Highview Baptist Church

“Joe Harrod has written a wonderful guide to improve our communication with God. The 40 questions span the spectrum from biblical and theological issues to historical models and practical guidance for praying. These chapters which are deeply researched and documented are written in a form that would appeal to new believers as well as more experienced Christians looking to refresh their prayer life. Dr. Harrod isn’t afraid to examine some of the thorny questions about prayer, including does God answer the prayers of unbelievers, does prayer change God’s mind, and is it acceptable to argue with God in prayer. This book would be a valuable resource for college courses in Christian spirituality as well as study groups for the local church. I highly recommend it and trust it will be eagerly received by all readers.” -- associate professor, emeritus of Christian formation and ministry, Wheaton College
