This book was given to me by a friend, and I in no way mean to disparage the gift. There are a number of useful things that can be wrestled out of this book. However, while I agree with the premise that prayer is necessary for the Christian family, I find the arguments in this book to be exegetically lacking or even manipulative of Scripture, the theology mushy at best (“The Spirit told me…”; “I heard the Lord say”; “Take communion as a family”?!), and the God & Country motive for prayer to be disheartening. Overall, I don’t recommend it as a guide for why you ought to pray, or even for a method for prayer.
