The emphasis and encouragement of corporate prayer among God's people is long overdue. Our culture has too long emphasized the unbiblical idea of the 'Lone Ranger' Christian. Franklin does a good job of helping re-introduce the corporate nature and importance of prayer among God's people. One disappointment is the freedom he has taken with the Acts 6:4 Greek text in order to try and support his premise of corporate prayer (pg 6ff). His premise is good, just not found in this text which the author asserts is a (if not the) major source of his book. Biblical fidelity and accuracy must reign supreme. If the idea/understanding is biblical, go to the texts which legitimately support it, do not press ideas into a text for supposed support.
