Description

So many of us struggle with prayer. Many books have been written on the subject and there’s a reason for that. Prayer comes hard to most of us, in most seasons. And when we do pray, we often don't know what to say. What is it that my Father loves to hear about? What are the best things I could pray for my family, my church, and myself?

This short book by renowned Bible teacher Alistair Begg combines warmth, clarity, humour, and practicality as he examines Paul’s prayers for his friends in the church in Ephesus.

Paul clearly enjoyed prayer, and was excited about it. He expected his Father in heaven to hear what he said, and to act in other people’s lives accordingly. The truths that underpin and shape his prayers will motivate us to pray and set us an example.

So be inspired by the Apostle Paul to pray bigger and better prayers as we look to our heavenly Father to do more than all we ask or imagine!

This is a delightfully warm-hearted, crystal-clear encouragement to bask in the gospel, and to pray in a way which fits with who we are in Christ. This book made me want to "pray big"—which is exactly the point!

When we get to heaven, we will finally understand how our smallest and most feeble prayers advanced Christ’s kingdom in ways we never dreamed. At that point, I don’t want to whine, ‘Bother! Why didn’t I pray bigger?’ This book is your best guide to offering up larger-than-life prayers through which God delights to work!

We will be forever grateful to Alistair for how he helped us understand and apply Christian basics to every facet of life and worship, and there is nothing more basic and transformational than prayer. There is no greater challenge for the Western church than to be a praying people; so we are thrilled and grateful for this vital book.

Independent reviews
 

A convicting, wonderful read that has brought me closer to God through prayer.

Ruth Clemence, Heirs Magazine, May 2, 2019

‘Pray Big’ will expand your understanding of prayer and perhaps show you something new that you could try. I recommend this to Christians who are looking to pray bold and big prayers and believe that He listens and responds in ways that we cannot even begin to imagine. It will bring you closer in your walk and I encourage you to take your time in prayer.... continue reading

“Quality book and quality service”

(Review written for 'Alistair Begg Book Bundle')

I love Alistair's books. Quality man of God, quality, solid biblical teaching. Stayed the course!
This devotional no exception. Had his Vol 2 last year so wanted to get Vol 1 this year. Not disappointed.
And my confidence in Alastair has not wained despite current controversy, as I know the man's heart and stand on moral issues - much of current public criticism is unbalanced and out of context. Read his book Christian Manifesto to capture something of this man's heart.

“This really is "truth for life"!”

(Review written for 'Alistair Begg Book Bundle')

I chose this as a Christmas present and am enjoying it very much. It gives you a truth to get your teeth into and mull over during the day. I love the cross-references which link passages in a way that I might not have thought of and the extra passage to read also throws more light on the topic under discussion. I'm not convinced it would work for a new Christian or someone who doesn't know the Bible very well and so may not understand the context of the verse or verses being explained and applied or the cross-references. But if you're reasonably familiar with the Bible and want to deepen your understanding, this book is really good.

“Impossible to read without a magnifying glass”

(Review written for 'Alistair Begg Book Bundle')

Well, I’d love to leave a great review, but for some unknown reason the publishers decided to use the teeniest font size they could find. It’s impossible to read without a magnifying glass! Why on earth would you do that - is it trendy to use a tiny font size or something?! So dreadfully disappointed in wasting my money on something I can’t even read (even with glasses!) :(

“A book of wisdom”

(Review written for 'Alistair Begg Book Bundle')

This isn't a light-hearted- make-you-feel-good devotional. This is truth that focuses on God, leads you to God, and keeps you in God's Word. Outstanding!

“Short and inspiring”

(Review written for 'Alistair Begg Book Bundle')

In a world mired in shifting values, evolving cultures, and diverse personalities, Alistair Begg seeks to illuminate a path that transcends the transient nature of human ideologies. He meticulously unpacks Jesus’ sermon, offering insightful reflections and encouraging Christians to embrace a life that defies societal norms.

This book is a quick read, comprising only eight brief chapters. But its brevity does not diminish its impact. Alistair Begg masterfully navigates through the nuances of the Sermon on the Plain, shedding light on topics such as happiness, integrity, loving your enemies, the heart of Jesus, and the true essence of the Golden Rule.

The Christian Manifesto is a short and inspiring read and it gives you the opportunity to reflect on your life and the words of Jesus. Alistair Begg's eloquent exploration of Jesus' sermon is really thought-provoking and moving. I can see myself re-reading this again.

“Encouraging and Challenging”

(Review written for 'Alistair Begg Book Bundle')

The Christian Manifesto is a very encouraging and challenging book. Begg has very thoughtfully expounded upon Jesus' words from the sermon on the plain. He starts off with an invitation to happiness showing that the world is always trying to promise happiness. Everyone wants to be happy and live their best life, however Jesus' teaching on this looks very different to what the world has to say on the matter. Begg takes what is a familiar passage to many and does an excellent job of engaging our minds as we think through the verses of the sermon causing the reader to reflect and examine themselve to see if their life matches their lips. Just like his preaching; Begg has a wonderful way of explaining the text in a very accessible manner filled with wit whilst bringing great depth. This is a great book to have us think about what faith in practice looks like. I think it's a great book for all Christians whether they be a new believer or someone who has been a Christian for many years, it's a great reminder for us all on how Jesus calls us to live.

“An Easy-Read Introduction to the Sermon on the Plain”

(Review written for 'Alistair Begg Book Bundle')

Alistair Begg writes some great, encouraging reflections around the Sermon on the Plain (Luke 6 and 7), sharing the radical nature of the manifesto Jesus sets out for his followers. A life following him is not an easy life, but it is the best choice we could ever make. It's a life that is counter-cultural, completely unlike anything we could imagine to be the sensible way to get ahead in life, and yet it is an invitation to experience life in all its fullness. This is a really encouraging read that won't take much longer than a couple of hours, so give it a go!

“You will leave feeling challenged!”

(Review written for 'Alistair Begg Book Bundle')

It should be no surprise that a book on Jesus’ most hard hitting sermon should be one that brought great conviction, over and over again. This little book is packed full of hard truths, leading to a great deal of self examination.

The words that Jesus spoke truly were life changing and Alistair has done a wonderful job of unpacking many of the statements Jesus made, inviting us to join in the radical and wonderful path Jesus set before us. He includes topics such as an exceptional kind of love, generous forgiveness and a life of integrity.

It made me want to read through the sermon over and over, just to soak in those radically life changing and life giving words. ♥️

It’s certainly one I will be revisiting and recommending to friends. 🙌

Thank you for generously providing this copy in exchange for my honest review.
