Here's the first book:
A dear friend mentioned to me almost a year ago that she had read this book, but she neglected to impress on me how amazing it was (no hard feelings though ;o). A few months later, I heard Paul Miller interviewed on the radio and was interested in some of the things he said, and a few months after that another blogger I read & trust gave his book great reviews and it finally made it to my book list.
I'm almost done reading A Praying Life and it has been so much more than I imagined it would be. I thought about trying to share this book on my blog the way I have shared other books, but eventually decided against it simply because there is so much great stuff in his book. I'd literally have to re-type almost every page! This book has helped me see prayer and God and myself in ways I never have before. It has loosened the ties of weights I have carried life-long, and definitely belongs on my list of books that have changed my theology. I cannot recommend this book highly enough!
