Amateurs by Jane Holloway
ISBN : 0-3407.4578-9
Publisher : Hodder & Stoughton
Our Rating :
Holloway is Prayer Secretary for the Evangelical Alliance, and is well qualified to write
this excellent introduction to prayer. Prayer for Amateurs is written in simple, plain
language, yet still tackles some of the difficult questions, such as How do we know God is
listening? and Why does he sometimes seem slow to answer our prayers? This is a
helpful book, and will appeal to the vast majority of Christians who have the humility to
recognise that in contrast to the prayer patterns of Jesus, we are mere amateurs!
This book is a part of Hodder & Stoughton's Amateurs series, and like the
others, is punctuated with the humour of Taffy's cartoons.
