Veteran author Chris Fabry ("The Song") once again writes a novel based on a movie, this time depicting Alex and Stephen Kendrick's upcoming film about a family on the brink of self-destruction. Pharmaceutical rep Tony Jordan and his Realtor wife, Elizabeth, may be successful in their careers, but their routine marriage is gasping for breath. Tony's frequent travels open him up to temptation, pride, and self-deception, while Elizabeth flounders and feels bitter while working at home with their daughter. Clara, Elizabeth's elderly new client, sees the woman's emotional turmoil and introduces her to the transformational power of prayer. With Clara's support and encouragement, Elizabeth begins praying for her relationship, and as the changes come, the couple starts opening up to years of overdue communication and a healing that often hurts. As their feelings are laid bare, the stress is overshadowed by hope and grace--an encouraging message. With a strong emphasis on family values and biblical themes, this story challenges churchgoing readers to act on their belief in the power of prayer.--Publishers Weekly
Top pick! This is a novelization of the Kendrick brothers' screenplay, yet Fabry has included so much meaningful spiritual content that it is difficult to remain unchanged after reading this book. The characters and their situations are so incredibly realistic that readers will be able to examine their own lives in the mirror of the characters. A fantastic story of the meaning and power of prayer. 4.5 stars--Romantic Times

I just love the character Miss Clara, I wish she was my friend and neighbor. Such an awesome and encouraging woman of God. I was sad for this book to end. I looked forward to sitting down and reading it. I want to see the movie now, but I am so glad I read the book first.
I have a renewed fire in me now. I want to have a closer relationship with the Lord. I want to go back to praying for the needs of my family, friends loved ones and strangers I meet. I feel like I have slacked off in that area of my life. This book has inspired me to try again. To seek the Lord in a new way. It has opened a door for me and I am excited. Now I don't know if this story will do that for you, but I sure am glad I read this book.
It isn't a "self help" or "this is the way to get God to move" book. It is a fictional story as far as I know. It's just such a wonderfully inspiring story. I like how it doesn't portray Christians as "perfect and having it all together". They make it clear it is through a relationship with Jesus that things can change in your life. Grace is shown throughout this story and that is so important.
I got so much enjoyment from this story. I felt a range of emotions and I was able to get lost in the story. I felt like I knew this family. It is such a sweet approach to an important part of Christianity. Prayer is a vital part of our relationship with Jesus.
In the back of the book there are discussion questions. So, if you want to get a small group going, the questions are back there for you already. Also there are color photos in the center of the book from the movie making. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in Jesus. Also if you enjoyed Fireproof & Courageous you will probably enjoy this one as well.
I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did. A great big thank you to Tyndale house Publishing for my free copy of this book in return for my honest review.
This book portrays realistically the way a marriage can crumble, the way a woman can place all the blame on her husband and not see her own part in it, the temptations a man can face, the wounds of a young daughter.
As someone who has walked through pain in their marriage and healing I can tell you they way the healing is shown is true. It might be a bit faster because it is a book but it isn’t instant. There is anger below the surface from betrayal and Chris showed that.
Miss Clara is wonderful character, someone we all need in our lives who spurs us on and is honest with us. The book holds true to the fact that God doesn’t always answer when we want or how we want but He is always listening.
This is an excellent book and I can’t wait to see the movie that will be coming out August 28th.
A copy of this book was given to me by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
What an amazing book! I couldn't put this book down! I literally read it in two days. This book is such a wake up call for Christians. Praying is a powerful weapon for Christians to use and we don't seem to tap into that power. This book made me see the flaws in my own prayer life and lit a fire under me to start a new in my prayer life. Chris does any awesome job with the novelization of the movie. I loved Ms. Clara's character. She made me want to be better as a mother and wife and Christian. I felt drawn to Elizabeth and her problems and needs. I could see myself in her somewhat, I don't have all the same problems but I could see similarities in my life and hers. I can't wait to share this book with everyone I know. It makes me want to shout from the roof tops!
I feel the need in my own life for a prayer change and I know anyone who reads this book will be changed. Read this and then give your copy to a friend. Let's start a prayer revival!
I was blessed with this book by Tyndale in exchange for an honest review. A positive review was not required.
