Publishers Description

Learn the revolutionary way to talk with God

Like millions of Christians, Dr. larry Crabb has always considered his prayer life a weakness - "dull, intense only in crisis, occasionally meaningful and passionate but mostly lifelessly routine." But for everyone who struggles to pray in a way that matters, who is bored with prayer and doesn't know where else to turn, this groundbreaking book whispers of hope for change.

Something new and real and deep started happening in him, Crabb says, when he began practicing the four steps of what he calls the PAPA prayer - a revolutionary conversational approach to talking with and enjoying God. As this fellow seeker shares his journey and education in the mysteries of prayer, he guides us to see ourselves and God in a different light . . . which will alter the way we talk - and listen - to Him.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Slow moving and, well, tough to stick with  Nov 6, 2006
I found this book to be a rather slow read. I kept thinking, "get to the point." It did not until the half way mark. There were some interesting analogies and some rather wise and thought provoking moments, but it lacked the ability to sustain my interest. I finished the book, but felt I had to force myself to do so. If you like a book that grabs you, moves quick and delivers practical advice, then you might want to continue shopping. If on the other hand you don't mind trudging through another prayer how-to book in hopes of finding a rich morsel or two, then this book might be worth your energy.
"Good, but still left me thirsty"  Sep 1, 2006
I have always been interested in three things when it comes to books on prayer:

1. Solid scriptural foundation
2. Easily explained to me
3. Thorough and complete coverage

I will say that Crabb gives me the first two, but leaves me still thirsty regarding the third. I do feel this book is better than most on the subject, but other than my two favorites: "God, Help Me Pray!", and "With Christ in the School of Prayer", there just doesn't seem to be much available that's solid.

Maybe few authors really know how to pray...
Eureka!  Aug 7, 2006
I can not recall how many books I have read on prayer-this book is absolutely the best. It accurately/scripturaly protrays the "relational" aspect of prayer. It reveals with vivid illustrations the "father heart" of God. The "atmosphere" that this book creates changes prayer life from a perfunctory duty to a privliged joy. Could not have enjoyed it more!
The Papa Prayer  Aug 5, 2006
The is an excellant book about a different way to pray. I think it is a must for all Christians. We need to know how to interact with the FATHER and his SON.
Learn God-obsessed Prayer  Jul 17, 2006
I started out pretty jaded against reading this book. I hate it when publishers use tag lines like, "Learn the revolutionary way to talk with God!" and use twenty-five (yes, I counted them, twenty-five!) different endorsements in the front flap to try and convince me how good the book is.

But I had confidence that Larry Crabb has something worthwhile to say when he writes a book, and so I read on.

My confidence was well-placed.

Just as John Piper's heartbeat has been to turn the church toward the glory of God, Larry's heartbeat has increasingly been toward turning the church away from self-obsession to God-obsession, leading us from our "nutty narcissism" to cherishing communion with the Trinity.

In The Papa Prayer Larry calls for our prayer life to change from a little lip service to adoration followed by a continual stream of "Gimme! Gimme!" to something much more wonderful, meaningful, Biblical, and profoundly transforming: prayer that is relational at heart.

He invites us to change our typical stale self-centered paradigm of prayer to honestly Presenting ourselves to God, Attending to our misperceptions of God and letting Him correct them, Purging ourselves of the things that block our intimacy to God, and then finally Approaching God with a purified vision of who He is and who we are and why we come to Him in prayer. (Yes, that spells P-A-P-A, I'm sorry, the acronym is Larry's idea, not mine!)

I'm totally inadequate to try and condense the beauty and power of this book in a few short sentences. This book has humbled me, and changed my prayer life into something much more pleasing to God and much more enlightening and transforming to my soul.
