3.0 out of 5 stars A Method for Prayer 12 Mar 2014
By megHan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I want to start off by saying that I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I usually wait to the end to tell people that, but I wanted to say first and foremost that I didn't buy this book - and you shouldn't too.

1) It's for sale for $.99 on Amazon, but according to the description, you can get the e-book and audio free on his website. Leaves me wondering why he has it for sale on Amazon then.

2) It is the exact book written by Reverend Matthew Henry back in 1710, so if you've already read this, then you know what it says. Yeah, this guy went through and did some modern spelling on things. He also added a glossary in the back, a daily Bible reading plan and Psalm 119. According to the description, there's also something called "My Affection," which is described as "a collection of devotional prayers to the Godhead of Jesus Christ." THAT is really just a bunch of sayings with places in the Bible to go read. I guess it could be called a "poem" of sorts, but with the Bible passages, it's just awkward.

I wanted so much from this book. I really did. But the formatting in the e-book I was sent is just plain awful. Things that are from Henry are set up in a somewhat odd outline form while others are just paragraphs. And it's basically ways to praise and pray to him, followed by Bible passages to back up what he's saying. I found myself skimming through the Bible passages to try to get the meaning of what was trying to be said in the first place. This is obviously not a sit-down-and-read book because it comes across more like a reference book. The Bible reading plan is interesting - by the end of this you'll have read the Old Testament once and the New Testament twice - you skip around - but I've seen similar things before online. If the author wanted to fix it up to make it more relateable to modern readers (which is why, I assume, that he used modern spelling of the words), he should have fixed it up to where people could read it and understand the point without being bogged down by so much that is not necessary - maybe have an Appendix in the back.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Supplemental Reading for Your Bible 13 Mar 2014
By Kathryn Lehan - Published on Amazon.com
It's difficult to encapsulate this book. It's a fantastic supplement for your Bible reading. It has prayers, scripture, and a glossary, and is rich in biblical teachings. If you aren't very far along in your faith, this book will probably overwhelm you. If you want to go deeper, this is a book for you. You literally can open this book to any page and spend hours in it. I can see going back to this book over and over again. I can honestly say I'm not done reading it!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Labor of Love 27 Feb 2014
By Mike Carter - Published on Amazon.com
A Method for Prayer is a labor of love- from Matthew Henry, published in 1710, and from Steve Kindorf, in 2014. I have long been a fan of Henry and I appreciate anyone who takes the time to retype one of his works. Thank you Steve for introducing Henry to the young readers of this generation! A Method for Prayer is a wonderful study guide and devotional reference.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent accompanyment to the King James Bible 1 Feb 2014
By Darcie Lasch - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This prayer book is an excellent accompaniment to the Kings James Bible and a great aid to any bible study group. The extensive glossary in the back of the book is outstanding and very helpful in understanding bible passages. An excellent choice for someone looking for a comprehensive guide to Mathew Henry's works.

3.0 out of 5 stars More to the point 9 Jun 2014
By Devotional56 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It's very spiritual, but in teaching the method is kind of lengthy. God is not impress with the length of your prayer . He's more concern with your heart. The bible study at the end of the book is helpful.
