Format: Paperback
The Bible teaches that there are conditions that must be met if God is to favorably answer our prayers. This book compiles those conditions into 123 pages. Everything Strauss says here is based on Scripture, so you can read this book with confidence. Strauss is not just making this stuff up. His writing is usually very accessible and can be understood the first time, so you won't have to go back and re-read paragraphs for comprehension. This is a book that is not just for pastors and theologians. It's also extremely practical and one that I would recommend to every Christian. The chapter titles are:

1. Sense or Nonsense? (in which Strauss documents some of the more nonsensical prayers he has heard)

2. Prayer and Unconfessed Sin

3. Prayer and Selfishness

4. Prayer and the Holy Spirit

5. Prayer in Jesus' Name

6. Prayer and Faith

7. Prayer and Unforgiveness

8. Prayer and the Will of God

9. Prayer and Thanksgiving

10. Prayer and Abiding

11. Prayer and Giving

12. Prayer and the Marriage Relationship

13. Prayer and Fasting

14. History's Most Debated Prayer (a line-by-line teaching on what is commonly known as "The Lord's Prayer")

15. The Prayer Life of Jesus (full of application for people who want to have a powerful prayer life!)

16. Questions and Answers

I read at an average speed and I read the entire book in 4 hours.

If you're looking for an inspiring book on prayer, this is it! I added this title to my library over 20 years ago and have often pulled it out to re-read portions. Lehman Strauss was blessed with an ability to write with conviction and humor. This is not, as one might expect, a dry, boring book, but one of substance delivered with humor and has the potential to encourage anyone in their prayer life. Over the years I have often given this book as a gift. I highly recommend 'Sense and Nonsense About Prayer'. Since this book is becoming harder to find, I am grateful to be able to order it through Amazon.

Of all the books I consulted for an adult Bible study concerning the topic of prayer, this was the best. Lehman Strauss is a gifted teacher and read more than 50 books on the subject of prayer before he wrote this book.

Straight to topic, and backed up nicely by Scripture. Going over books on prayer can be frustrating and complicated, not this one, please take the time to purchase and study.

This is just simply a great read. I might not agree in total with the author, but it puts a lot of things in perspective.

This has to be the best book on the market on the subject of prayer, especially from a Biblical viewpoint. This book may surprise you on what the bible really has to say about prayer!
