Book Description

According to Pastor Mark Batterson in his book, The Circle Maker, 'Drawing prayer circles around our dreams isn't just a mechanism whereby we accomplish great things for God. It's a mechanism whereby God accomplishes great things in us.' Do you ever sense that there's far more to prayer, and to God's vision for your life, than what you're experiencing? It's time you learned from the legend of Honi the Circle Maker---a man bold enough to draw a circle in the sand and not budge from inside it until God answered his prayers for his people. What impossibly big dream is God calling you to draw a prayer circle around? In this powerful booklet, excerpted from THE CIRCLE MAKER, Batterson helps you uncover your heart's deepest desires and God-given dreams and unleash them through the kind of audacious prayer that God delights to answer.

5.0 out of 5 stars A primer...excerpts from the best-selling book. December 12, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
BE A CIRCLE MAKER by Mark Batterson is 54 pages long and contains excerpts from his NYT best-selling book. These selections are from the first three chapters of Circle Maker and are but a slice of the pie, a bite of the beignet, so to speak. So if you're looking for Pastor Mark's hit book, you'll want to buy the full hardcover edition.

I bought both and am using this smaller version as a primer for my adult Sunday School class at church. It contains the story of Honi and many precious nuggets of insight and wisdom. It is an inexpensive way to get a taste of what it means to "Dream Big, Pray Hard and Think Long".

5.0 out of 5 stars Whet your appetite January 22, 2012
Format:Paperback
This is a succinct little pamphlet of 58 pages or so that will whet your appetite for Batterson's full length book.
It's size and cost make it a perfect "hand-out" or give-away. It is encouraging as well as inspiring. The theme of this booklet and the full size book remind me of the old revival story: A pastor once asked Gypsy Smith how to start a revival. Smith replied, "Go home, lock yourself in your room, kneel down in the middle of the floor, draw a chalk circle around yourself, and ask God to start a revival inside the circle. When He has answered your prayer, the revival will be on!"

5.0 out of 5 stars Circle Maker review March 29, 2012
By Cy
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book has work many wonders. When the reader wants to circle an object like a field to build a church, or a person's health problem, you are actually pin pointing that object for specific prayer. God can answer it. Of course this must come from a concerning heart, not the mind. If you believe God can answer this prayer he can.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Really A Book May 15, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It's more like a message related in a few ways. I wish I had gotten the other book, not this shortened thing. I can tell you what it says in one sentence, "No problem is too big for God" That is by just thumbing through it. If you read about Honi the Rabbi also called Onias on the internet, you'll get the whole message, which is a good message, but....I guess the message of both is, for you Christians, is to "PRAY" "Pray through your difficulties, just pray, and keep on praying, and circles are helpful!" I won't explain the circle thing. I don't want to give everything away. It's a better book than lots of others, so don't take anything I've said to mean that it is not a good message and it will bless you. How much is a blessing worth? A whole lot.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good read December 30, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a helpful small version of some key points from the book "The Circle Maker." It is a good book to give someone going through a rough time. Easy to read, but carries a lot of good insight into prayer.
