Reviews - What do our customers think?
Inspiring. Powerful. Uplifting. Joyous.  Feb 19, 2006
"Prison to Praise" is an uplifting, inspirational story of Merlin Carothers and his walk of faith during his career as a U.S. Army chaplain. But more than that, it the inspiring story of an ordinary man used by God in extraordinary ways.

Carothers doesn't sugar coat the truth or his own life: he was a thief, deserter, and criminal before finding saving grace that set him toward his destiny. In him, we see ourselves; failings and fallings as well as redemption.

He discovered important truths contained in the Bible about salvation, filling of the Holy Spirit, and the power of God's Word. He also discovered for himself and many others the key to answered prayer: thankfulness and praise. Exercising faith in 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18:

"Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances for this is God's will for you!"

Carothers discovered a key to unlocking the power of God in our lives. Ministering on the strength and promise of this word, he has helped countless people in their walks of faith. He has helped mountains to be moved.

This book is a blessing to believers and a bright light to those looking for truth and a way home to the Father.
 
This is a Phony Formula  Jan 7, 2006
I am duplicating a review I originally wrote for "Power in Praise", which teaches this same doctrine. I have read both these books many years ago and am thoroughly familiar with this strange teaching.
Please, fellow Christians, be as the noble Bereans who examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true!(Acts 17) This is one of the first of many "faith formula" teachings and books that have plagued the church of God for the past thirty years.
We can use our common sense and some careful Bible interpretation to find that this doctrine is foolish. There is a BIG difference between trusting and praising God IN difficult circumstances, and praising God FOR absolutely everything: good, bad, sin, and all circumstances. This is so obviously fanatical and senseless. This creates a false picture of our Savior and Heavenly Father as some evil tyrant, and we as his pawns. God is all-powerful and has had to ALLOW many kinds of sin and sometimes great degrees if evil in this world because of the curse upon this world brought about by Adam's sin and the continued sins of mankind (see Romans 5). But it is senseless to praise Him FOR sin or evil. God hates sin and evil, and the Bible is full of clear teaching about it (see Psalms 5, James 1, etc.)

The main texts of Brother Carothers doctrine are I Thessalonians 5:18, "In everything give thanks..."; Ephesians 5:20, "Always giving thanks for all things..."; and Romans 8:28, "And we know that God causes all things to work together for good..." He uses these passages to teach in this book, and in all his others, that "we should PRAISE GOD FOR EVERYTHING, since everything ultimately is God's will for us and will be for our spiritual benefit. This is NOT some new special revelation from God, as he implies over and over in the book. Rather it is a ridicuous idea that contradicts balanced scriptural truth. This "word of faith-type formula" makes our holy, loving God look awful.

In this book the scripture is twisted to fit the doctrine and the modern testimonials are used to support the absurd practices. You won't find any Biblical stories with saints praising God FOR sin or evil. Throughout the Psalms, for example, we see David calling upon God for help, not praising Him FOR evil, but praising Him for being faithful and loving (see Psalm 13, 16, 18 etc.) We see the saints in Hebrews 11 commended for their FAITH, because, despite suffering and being persecuted, they trusted in the goodness of God, who had made to them (as He has to us) His very great and precious promises of eternal love and deliverance.
God has allowed and continues to ALLOW Christians to suffer and be matured through life's problems (e.g.: Acts 6-8, Hebrew 10-12, James 1, I Peter 1 and 4, etc.), but we are NEVER called to focus on sin, persecution, or any evil and praise God FOR it as if it were "Good". Rather, we are to focus our faith on God, our loving Father (Psalm 25:15 etc.), and fix our eyes on our Lord Jesus Christ,"...the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross..." (Hebrews 12:2).

MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW  Aug 4, 2003
Years ago I read this book and decided to pick it up and read it again, I am glad that I did. Many times in our Christian walk we
need to remember that we serve a God who loves us. This book helped me to remember that.
The Word of God says, " Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you!" (1 Thessalonians 5: 16-18).
That my friend can be a hard pill to swallow, but the author helps you to understand what God is actually saying to you in this Scripture and many others.
We are here to learn, to love and to show others through ourselves a God that loves them. Adverse situations come to us all, that is part of our training, but how well we handle it and how well we use the weapons that are in God's Word depends on us.
Praise is a force that can move mountains and bring great peace and victory to Christians. This book will help you understand just how important praise is to a Christian. If you have an opportunity, pick up a copy and put into practice what you will learn reading it. Remember, God inhabits the praises of His people...........you are never alone!

In everthing give thanks for THIS is the will of God  May 26, 2002
The key suggestion from the book is:
We should praise Lord always;
for even the bad situation in which we are put.
Generally we are trained to pray for solution for the problems,
and if the prayers are answered
we praise the Lord for thankfully.
He shows the other way:
if yor are sick, instead for praying for healing,
Praise the Lord for the sickness, because it is will of Lord.
He gives an auto-biographical essay how Lord leads him to this discovery starting from a earlier life phase in prison.

There are a lot of interesting examples where such Praise giving
led to peace, power, joy , healing and solutions of problems, in his life and lives of others.

He also points out this is superior form of spiritual commuion with Lord.
He draws attention to the fact that baptism by Holy Spirit may be needed for such effective Praise giving.

Read:
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
