This is an extraordinary book.

Who among us hasn't struggled with the issue of prayer? How do I pray? What do I say? Is/was it alright to say THAT to God? Is God listening? The list of questions and doubts is endless.

So we turn to prayers of others as models, to give us confidence that we're on the right track, that what we're offering to God is worthwhile. And appropriate. And honest.

Enter Harold Best with this welcome - even needed - book of 80 prayers. The writer is well known as the thought-provoking author of Music Through the Eyes of Faith and Unceasing Worship: Biblical Perspectives on Worship and the Arts. His writing in those books - accessible yet dense, like an exquisite piece of New York cheesecake - reminds us of his lifetime of dualities: On one hand he is Emeritus Dean of the Conservatory of Music at Wheaton College and Past President of the National Association of Schools of Music. On the other, he's spent a lifetime tinkering with Studebakers and crafting furniture from trees, and lamps from wood burls. He's lived in the city and in the woods, played sublime organ music, and gotten his hands roughed up in his garden. Most of all he loves God - deeply and passionately - and in "Dumbfounded Praying," he has given us a remarkable collection of prayers that will resonate with any open heart. Because at the heart of his heart, Harold Best is transparent and vulnerable, and while he is the author, I often felt while reading his words that he was reading my mind.

Not far into it yet, but I like what I've read. I am impressed by his phraseology which is very expressive.

I was really looking forward to this book but it was a complete let down. I think this author should read "Humility" by Andrew Murray before attempting to write another book. I didn't even get half way through it before tossing it.
