5.0 out of 5 stars Invitation to Engage, 30 July 2007
This review is from: God on Mute: Engaging the Silence of Unanswered Prayer (Hardcover)
There's no way I can be objective about Pete Greig's writing as its impact on me over the last three years has been massive and at the heart of a whole resurgence of energy for God and the kingdom coming that is marking my life and relationships just now. But I'll try ...

God on Mute is the best grapple with the agonising question of un-answered prayer that I know. It is for real. Primarily because it springs out of Pete and Samie's story of what is so very demanding in their lives. But also for the way it connects with the experience of Jesus: facing his fear in Gethsemane; utterly alone on the cross; dead silent in the tomb; speaking into his friends' deepest fears on the day of Resurrection. I have wept with this book. And I know I will return to it for its specific teaching which is well organised and accessible, not only for individual readers but as a resource for group study and reflection.

The overall impact for me is a challenge about being more bold, specific and persistent in intercession; I realise that the main reason I don't know the real agony of un-answered prayer is that so much of my praying has been so open-ended that it would be hard to determine what was answer and what was lack-of-answer. Through Pete's writing God is inviting me to a much deeper engagement than that.
