Book recommendation

This is the third time I have read this book.

I like the promo tag on the front cover: “Essential reading for anyone serious about prayer.” _ Christianity Today1663446

Like all of Bloesch’s books, The Struggle of Prayer provides a double-edged sword of information.

On one hand, Bloesch will give you a vast survey of what many great scholars and practitioners have to say about prayer (I consider this one of Bloesch’s great positives; I can read one of his books and feel like I’ve surveyed several other books at the same time.)

On the other hand, I do wish Bloesch would not quote so many other sources and would instead give more of his own thoughts on the subject.  (Sometimes I feel like I’m reading a book of quotes.)

But hey, I guess you can’t have your cake and eat it too.
