Description

'God doesn't demand hectic church programs and frenetic schedules: he only wants his people to know him more intimately,' says D. A. Carson. 'If we are to make any headway in reforming our personal and corporate praying, then we shall have to begin by listening afresh to Scripture and seeking God's help in understanding how to apply Scripture to our lives, our homes and our churches.'

In this widely appreciated exposition, Carson works through several of the apostle Paul's prayers in such a way that we hear God speak to us today, and find strength and direction to improve our praying, both for God's glory and for our good.

Back cover copy

God doesn't demand hectic church programs and frenetic schedules; he only wants his people to know him more intimately, says D. A. Carson. The apostle Paul found that spiritual closeness in his own fellowship with the Father. "A Call to Spiritual Reformation "investigates the Epistles to see what lessons Paul taught in his "school of prayer."
Christians today can still achieve the confidence Paul enjoyed by following his life-shaping principles and searching for a deeper devotional experience.
"[This book] provides a . . . pointed argument that the greatest need for churches today is not education, evangelism, or programs, but a deeper knowledge of God. It contributes to filling that need by assisting those who read it to a fuller life of prayer."
