Book #8 - [Re]Understanding Prayer

As I am preparing for a series I am doing on prayer this summer, I picked up Kyle Lake's book [Re]Understanding Prayer: A Fresh Approach to Conversation with God. I wasn't looking for a "how to" book or a "7 easy steps to prayer" kind of book. I wanted something that authentically speaks into what people are seeking to do as they pray. This book definitely fulfilled that search. The honesty Kyle brings to this book on his own prayer life made it easier for me to admit that my own prayer life isn't always what I know it should be. But at the same time, Kyle makes it very clear that prayer isn't everything that so many people want to put on it.

I really enjoyed reading this book and would recommend it to anyone who isn't a Pharisee.
