Description

We all pray . . . some.

We pray to stay sober, centered, or solvent. When the lump is deemed malignant. When the money runs out before the month does. When the marriage is falling apart. We pray.

But wouldn’t we like to pray more? Better? Stronger? With more fire, faith, and fervency?

Yet we have kids to feed, bills to pay, deadlines to meet. The calendar pounces on our good intentions like a tiger on a rabbit. And what about our checkered history with prayer? Uncertain words. Unmet expectations. Unanswered requests.

We aren’t the first to struggle with prayer. The first followers of Jesus needed prayer guidance too. In fact, prayer is the only tutorial they ever requested.

And Jesus gave them a prayer. Not a lecture on prayer. Not the doctrine of prayer. He gave them a quotable, repeatable, portable prayer. Couldn’t we use the same?

In Before Amen best-selling author Max Lucado joins readers on a journey to the very heart of biblical prayer, offering hope for doubts and confidence even for prayer wimps. Distilling prayers in the Bible down to one pocket-sized prayer, Max reminds readers that prayer is not a privilege for the pious nor the art of a chosen few. Prayer is simply a heartfelt conversation between God and his child. Let the conversation begin.



Author Information

Max Lucado
Max Lucado has the heart of a pastor and the pen of a poet. He is a preacher who writes and a writer who preaches, though none would call him preachy. This unique combination of gifts led Christianity Today to label him "America's Pastor," but he prefers to go by "Max" and leave the titles behind.

Since 1985 this Texas pastor has taken pen to paper, sharing his heart and his stories with readers around the globe. And readers have responded, snapping up more than 50 million copies of his 60 plus titles during the last two decades.

Every year, Max's books are consistently among the best selling and most well-reviewed books in the industry. He is the first and only author to win the ECPA Christian Book of the Year award three times (1999 for Just Like Jesus, 1997 for In the Grip of Grace and 1995 for When God Whispers Your Name). And his name has become a fixture on national bestseller lists-a Max Lucado title has appeared on the CBA hardcover bestseller list every month for more than a dozen years. Also in 2008, Max Lucado's 3:16 The Numbers of Hope was awarded Outreach Magazine's Resource of the Year as well as the Retailer's Choice Book of the Year in the Christian Living category. His works regularly appear on the Publishers Weekly religion bestseller lists and have graced the USA Today and New York Times bestseller lists more than once.

Max Lucado is one of the rare authors who can craft memorable books for readers of all ages, races and creeds. He has written bestselling books for both children and adults, from illustrated storybooks to nonfiction and biblical commentary. Though he is known best for his nonfiction books for adults, Max won Campus Life magazine's "favorite author" designation so consistently that the category was deleted for many years from the teen reader's annual awards.

Max's gift of turning a phrase has turned into one of Hallmark's most popular branded greeting cards lines, selling 6 million cards in just three years. His word and stories have been repackaged in just about every format imaginable, including DVDs, CD-ROMs, music CDs, apparel, giftware, calendars, study Bibles and even plush products. And his books have been translated into more than 28 languages worldwide.

Yet all these books and products find their wellspring in a single source: the pulpit at Oak Hills Church in San Antonio, Texas. All Max's books for adults have been birthed as sermons for the congregation at Oak Hills Church-perhaps one of the reasons Readers Digest dubbed him "America's Best Preacher" in 2005.
