Comments Prayer and the Knowledge of God: What the Whole Bible Teaches

  • Gavin Breeden

    Here's a theologically rigorous exploration of the Bible's teaching on prayer from a top notch theologian. If you're looking for something to warm your heart and give you practical tips to bettering your prayer life, this might not be the place to start. If you're seeking to have a better understanding of what the Bible teaches about prayer, how prayer works, and what role prayer plays in the life of the Christian, this may be a good book for you.I really appreciate Goldsworthy opening the book [...]


  • Mark A Powell

    Goldsworthy challenges us to see prayer as our response to what God has said and done, not simply as a means of requesting things from Him. Although full of practical implications, Goldsworthy’s goal is to first provide a proper foundational understanding of prayer that will then affect the way we pray. He places a strong emphasis on the necessity of Christ’s mediation in making prayer possible and discusses the role of faith. A powerful, thought-provoking read.


  • Tom

    This is a helpful book on prayer. I appreciated his biblical-theological approach to prayer, showing the development of prayer from Genesis to Revelation. Enriched my knowledge of prayer.


  • Jeremiah von Kühn

    His emphasis on Jesus as our mediator who is the basis of all our prayer made the book worth reading. Also very helpful was how God's word to us (the gospel of his Son) should shape the content of our prayers.


  • Katie Potter

    Very helpful in the theology of prayer, specifically in regards to God's sovereignty, our responsibility and privilege.


  • Nathan Williams

    One of the best books I've ever read on prayer. He explains the biblical theology behind prayer and grounds it all in the work of Christ. Excellent
