Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

This edition of Batterson’s adult book of the same name calls upon young people to take a look at their lives, and encourages them to dream big, pray hard, and think long. Drawing on the example of a Talmudic holy man, Honi, whose story incorporates the image of a prayer circle, Batterson (with input from his son) uses this theme throughout as he invites readers to think of ways to enrich their lives and the lives of others through prayer. This also sounds, in some places, like a prosperity gospel, as readers are encouraged to ask for and expect miracles. Batterson shares his story and that of his ministry, and while the stories are not always relevant to his audience (which he admits), his sincerity comes through. And unlike some other books of this ilk, this title does not so much make fanciful promises as it encourages readers to really consider their lives and what they need rather than what they want, and it shows them paths to peace and happiness. There are workbooklike activities at the end of each chapter, and because of the relatability of the message, kids may be moved to try them. Grades 8-12. --Cooper, Ilene

This is the second book by Mark Batterson that I have read in under a month. It was such an amazing read that when I finished it I flipped back to the first page and started reading it again, this time taking more time to digest and process the material. Though this student edition is co-written with his son Parker Batterson, it was also a great read as an adult. Now I must admit I have not read The Circle Maker (yet!) but this book was done in an amazing way and I highly recommend it. The sections in the book are:

1. The Legend of the Circle Maker
2. Circle makers
3. The Jericho Miracle
4. Praying Through

The First Circle - Dream Big
5. Cloudy with a Chance of Quail
6. You Can't Never Always Sometimes Tell
7. The Solution to Ten Thousand Problems

The Second Circle - Pray Hard
8. Persistence Quotient
9. The Favor of Him Who Dwells in the Burning Bush
Game of Chicken
10. No Answer

The Third Circle - Think Long
11. Long and Boring
12. The Greatest of them All
13. The Speed prayer
14. Life Goal List

Keep Circling
15. Now There Was One
Appendix
Notes

Almost every chapter has a personal example that starts with an ideal, goal or prompting from God. Then there is a comparison to a biblical case or story. Then it ends with circling back and Mark and Parker telling us how it came to pass. Each chapter also has three questions that can be used for group discussion, or personal reflection. These questions will help you to go deeper with the material being presented and help you examine your life and practices. This book will confront how you see prayer, what you pray for, how you pray.

I love this book! Batterson has done it again, with the help of his son, Parker. "The Circle Maker - Student Edition" re-tools the original version of "The Circle Maker" to speak clearly to students about truths that will equip them to live a God-honoring life. This version contains questions relevant to students at the end of each chapter and a pretty amazing list of Life Goals by Parker at the end of the book.

I'm convinced that this book can be used to change history by teaching students to engage God with BIG prayers! I have already purchased a copy for my son's youth pastor and I pray that parents and youth pastors across the country will use this book to mentor their students.

I really enjoyed this book. It lends a whole new perspective on prayer and faith. It puts into the readers hands, a more solid way to pray while teaching how to put into practice the patience to wait for our answers from God. Batterson has a charming wit that makes this book reader friendly and memorable. This isn't one of thoes books that you read and forget about. It's a book that you will put into practice and use everyday of your life. It draws you close to God.
