"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Rachel really digs into the Biblical account, and you can tell she's spent some quality time studying it out. She weaves together the cultural background of Hannah's time with theological nuances that are relevant for us today. She mentions some of the original Hebrew words as she focuses on different aspects of Hannah's prayers. She draws parallels between Hannah's raw emotion -- and similar emotions we might experience in our lives today (agony, bitterness, grief).
The Sensational Scent of Prayer is more devotional than Andrew Murray's Lord, Teach Us to Pray, and a bit lighter reading than J. C. Ryle's A Call to Prayer. But it is focused on Scriptural truth, and it stirs the heart to a deeper quality of communication with God. And it would be a worthwhile companion to any personal Bible study on prayer.
The book is a short one, and easy to read quickly -- although you might benefit from taking it a chapter at a time, and really mulling over the truths shared in there, before moving ahead. I found myself highlighting a lot of points, and noting them down for future reference, and really benefited from reading it more slowly.
I would recommend The Sensational Scent of Prayer if you want something to recharge your prayer time. I would recommend it if you're desperate for peace in the midst of an emotionally trying situation. And I would recommend it as a continuation of your own Bible study about prayer.

Thank you so much for allowing God to use you. Your faith is contagious. You made me want more of God and so much less of me. To God be the Glory, and may we stop long enough to watch His Glory in action.
