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.
The story takes the reader through the process of God softening and changing the hearts of many characters in this novel, even some characters the reader wasn't expecting to see changes in. What I enjoyed most about this book is that prayer is thoroughly explained throughout this book. The author takes great pains to emphasize that prayer is not for God's benefit but rather our benefit. When we as Christians take the time to seek the Lord with all our heart, He is able to change us from within. The beauty of this story is that it speaks the truth by emphasizing we can't change others, we can only change ourselves, and genuine change comes by repentance and submission to the Lord.
If I had one complaint about this book, it would be the frequent references of skin color when introducing characters. Let's get past that, ok? Otherwise this is a great novel that has inspired me to make my own "prayer closet"! I look forward to seeing the movie when it comes out as well!
