5.0 out of 5 stars A great compilation of seven books on prayer life
For almost a century Edward McKendree Bounds' (1835-1913) books on prayer have been classic works, stimulating and inspiring Christians to develop a fuller prayer life and become prayer warriors. A forceful writer and deep thinker, Bounds spent the last nineteen years of his life reading, writing, and praying. He rose at 4 a.m. daily for many years, and was indefatigable...

3.0 out of 5 stars So so
Good, learnt a few things from this book, but think a most of it is performance centred and not gospel centred. Prayer is very important, but can’t become more important than God. It cannot be a goal in itself.
I would more recommend readers to read Don Carson’s book ‘A Call to Spiritual Reformation’ or even ‘A Praying Life’ by...

5.0 out of 5 stars A great compilation of seven books on prayer life, 28 Oct 2004
For almost a century Edward McKendree Bounds' (1835-1913) books on prayer have been classic works, stimulating and inspiring Christians to develop a fuller prayer life and become prayer warriors. A forceful writer and deep thinker, Bounds spent the last nineteen years of his life reading, writing, and praying. He rose at 4 a.m. daily for many years, and was indefatigable in his study of the Bible.
As breathing is a physical reality to us, so prayer was a reality for Bounds. He took the biblical command "pray without ceasing" almost as literally as animate nature takes the law of the reflex nervous system, which controls our breathing.
Because Bounds so diligently practiced what he preached, we was able to capture the essence of prayer, and his works live on to call today's Christians to higher discipleship and an energetic, God-devoted prayer life.

An old timer in every sense of the word but as useful as it was written for the yesteryears as it is for now in 2013.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book, 6 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Complete Works of E. M. Bounds on Prayer, The: Experience the Wonders of God Through Prayer (Paperback)
I would highly recommend this book, not so easy reading but very thought provoking and and worth putting into practice. I have not finished it but it is a really good book. It was used as stated so I was not expecting a new product, had some underlining in it but I can live with that.

This review is from: Complete Works of E. M. Bounds on Prayer, The: Experience the Wonders of God Through Prayer (Paperback)
Good, learnt a few things from this book, but think a most of it is performance centred and not gospel centred. Prayer is very important, but can’t become more important than God. It cannot be a goal in itself.
I would more recommend readers to read Don Carson’s book ‘A Call to Spiritual Reformation’ or even ‘A Praying Life’ by Paul Miller which are Christ centred and not performance centred
