A Bibliography: Prayer

posted in: A Bibliography, Prayer, Reading | 0

Throughout my writing career and Christian life, as I’ve turned my library card and reading time to different questions, I’ve compiled bibliographies of books I’ve read or intend to read about different topics. Thus far, I’ve scribbled lists on:

This blog post, I hope, will be another living bibliography. I’ve arranged it a little differently from the others, as this is something I’m both passionate about and have read a lot about.

Firstly, my Top Ten Books on Prayer

  1. Don Carson’s A Call To Spiritual Reformation
  2. Tim Chester’s You Can Pray
  3. Ken Wilson’s Mystically Wired 
  4. Tom Wright’s New Testament Prayer for Everyone
  5. David Hansen’s Long Wandering Prayer
  6. Michael Reeves’ Enjoy Your Prayer Life
  7. Rowan Williams Being Christian (Covers more than prayer, but covers prayer beautifully)
  8. Pete Nicholas and Helen Thorne’s 5 Things to Pray for your City (this is one of a series of practical prayer tools)
  9. William Philip’s Why We Pray
  10. Trystan Owain Hughes, Living the Prayer
