Praying Like Jesus: The Lord's Prayer in a Culture of Prosperity

James R. Mulholland, Author HarperOne $16.95 (144p) ISBN 978-0-06-001156-7
Prayer is clearly a hot topic these days, and publishers' reactions to the success of ""the Bible's Little Big Man"" Jabez have been swift and decisive. While many books have sought to emulate Jabez's successful formula with various knockoffs and rip-offs, others offer an entirely different view. In Praying Like Jesus: The Lord's Prayer in a Culture of Prosperity, James Mulholland challenges the Wilkinsonian view that prayer exists to change an individual's personal fortunes. Rather, he argues, prayer is about communicating with God the way Jesus did hence the book's structure around the phrasing and themes of the Lord's Prayer as found in the New Testament. Far more than a ""sour grapes"" approach to Jabez's phenomenal success, this important corrective offers strong, thoughtful theology in its own right. (Oct.)
