Item Description...
In this book, Neal E. Snider provides a critique of the best-selling book by Bruce H. Wilkinson called The Prayer of Jabez. Writing in the form of a letter to Jabez himself, Snider is generous with praise when it is warranted but challenges many of Wilkinson's assumptions and contentions about prayer, and offers a corrective to them. The book will be beneficial to Christians, including pastors and other ministers, who desire a vital and traditional corrective to the human-centered approach to prayer encouraged by followers of the Jabez phenomenon.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Fun and insightful critique of a popular book  Apr 7, 2006
Bruce Wilkinson's book, "The Prayer of Jabez" presents some serious theological concerns for many Christians. Neal Snider, a retired Lutheran pastor, is among them. In an effort to critique "The Prayer of Jabez," bringing out both its positive and negative aspects, Snider creatively addresses a letter to this now-celebrated Old Testament individual to update him on the recent success about Wilkinson's book. Through this genre, Snider manages to confront the mistaken theology of "The Prayer of Jabez" while avoiding a vitriolic tone or personal attacks. The format is perfectly suited for the debate.

Aside from the book's genre/format, "A Letter to Jabez" has many positive aspects. It compliments "The Prayer of Jabez" greatly as Snider lays his book out in the same way Wilkinson does his book. Snider is complimentary where Wilkinson's theology is beneficial (he is not afraid to agree with him about many things ranging from the support of missions to the evils of pornography) but is also unafraid to point out areas where Wilkinson departs from Scriptural teachings-including the words of Jesus himself. Snider also shows himself adept at pointing out internal inconsistencies in "The Prayer of Jabez" and the false assumptions within Wilkinson's illustrations.

The negative aspects of "A Letter to Jabez" are few. It should be noted that one must actually read "The Prayer of Jabez" to understand Snider's critique. He is "cute" in explaining certain terms to Jabez (cruise ship, Reformation, etc.)-Jabez has been dead for thousands of years now-but does tend to go overboard explaining these modern terms. Finally, toward the book's end, Snider seems to lose track of who his reader is; this book is intended for lay Christians and begins to address them in a very fitting manner, but gets too bogged down in quoting Martin Luther and explaining the similar theology between modern Fundamentalism and pre-Vatican II Roman Catholicism. I don't think many of Snider's readers will follow (let alone appreciate) this pretty insightful critique.

In all, Snider's brief book is excellent. He mirrors almost exactly my own critique of "The Prayer of Jabez," (we can't both be wrong!) but presents them in a full, unique format. I highly recommend this book for all who have read Wilkinson. If it doesn't put words to your own misgivings about the book, it will at least give you a different perspective and points to ponder. Highly recommended.
