And thus a little bit disapointing. Nice for what it is though. I wouldn't buy it again. Sorry about that.
The Prayer of Jabez (Breakthrough) by Bruce Wilkinson

2.0 out of 5 stars Weak but appealing, 7 Mar 2002
While always a good thing to be encouraging prayer, there are some disquieting elements in the book, not least the suggestion that you read it every few weeks to gain more spiritual insights. It's really not that big a book...
Also, I am concerned by the superficial degree of biblical interpretation. Yes, jabez prayed a prayer that God answered. But Jabez was also honourable in God's sight...read the whole of Chronicles and begin to understand the nature of covenant, and this book might be useful.
But if you're not looking at it from the perspective of the new testament, you can pray a formula till the cows come home. It's knowing Jesus that matters...
