Praying with Paul

D. A. Carson

About This Book

God doesn’t demand hectic church programs and frenetic schedules; he only wants his people to know him more intimately, says top-selling author D. A. Carson. The apostle Paul found that spiritual closeness in his own fellowship with the Father. By following Paul’s example, we can do the same. This book calls believers to reject superficiality and revolutionize their lives by embracing a God-guided approach to prayer. A study guide, DVD, and leader’s kit for the book are available through Lifeway and The Gospel Coalition.

DVD: eight 15-minute sessions with leader’s guide and discussion questions

Book: 12 chapters

The video length for this study was nice, about 10-15 minutes per session. There was no homework required. This study sparked some nice discussion from our group. Occasionally people had trouble following along and figuring out what Carson was referring to in certain questions and how the questions fit together. Overall this study had good depth, spending more time looking at our personal and community prayer lives.
