According to Pastor Mark Batterson in his book, The Circle Maker, 'Drawing prayer circles around our dreams isn't just a mechanism whereby we accomplish great things for God. It's a mechanism whereby God accomplishes great things in us.' Do you ever sense that there's far more to prayer, and to God's vision for your life, than what you're experiencing? It's time you learned from the legend of Honi the Circle Maker---a man bold enough to draw a circle in the sand and not budge from inside it until God answered his prayers for his people. What impossibly big dream is God calling you to draw a prayer circle around? In this powerful booklet, excerpted from THE CIRCLE MAKER, Batterson helps you uncover your heart's deepest desires and God-given dreams and unleash them through the kind of audacious prayer that God delights to answer.

One lives in the DC area. We have never attended the author's church mentioned in the book.
Describes stories from the bible, like Joshua from the book of Joshua; others; applies them to true life stories the author went thru, how God worked out financial and other difficulties in his and his family's life. Good book for Father's Day tomarrow. Read the book thru a local library here in Maine, was VERY POPULAR & is in demand thru the library system.
Have been to DC and the book, best I can tell; also WOULD NOT OFFEND anyone from DC; really is written TO ENCOURAGE people; has no racial or crime or other issues that would make it offensive to anyone; seeks to build peoples' lives. :) Decide for yourself!
Q: How does the booklet differ from the book?
In Be a Circle Maker, Pastor Mark Batterson shares powerful insights from the true story of Honi the circle maker, a first-century Jewish sage who prayed for miracles--and then they fell from the heavens like rain. It is shorter than the original book, which is titled The Circle Maker.
