    The Still Hour PDF/EPUB ß The Still Epub / still pdf, hour pdf, The Still book, The Still HourThe Still Hour KindleI looked this book up after reading a short excerpt of it in another book. It was well worth finding. Austin Phelps begins with a concise survey of great Christians' prayer lives. That first chapter quickly leads one to recognize something important: that all great Christians prayed and even loved prayer. The author then goes on to diagnose numerous problems Christians face in prayer and explains how to address them. One thing I loved about this book was the emphasis on love and delight. Many of the modern books I've read on prayer emphasize duty. And while Austin Phelps did not deny it, he also didn't focus on it. Delight and privilege are the ground of

    The Still Hour PDF/EPUB ß The Still Epub / still pdf, hour pdf, The Still book, The Still HourThe Still Hour KindleAnybody else find it hard to give ratings up in here ?! I think this one would be a 3.76 in all reality. This small book on prayer had me contemplating my own still hours or lack thereof.

    The Still Hour PDF/EPUB ß The Still Epub / still pdf, hour pdf, The Still book, The Still HourThe Still Hour KindleDense for a little book with lots of truth to chew on. Addresses the epidemic of ignorance and apathy Christians have toward praying and revives the practice with gospel-centred truths.

    The Still Hour PDF/EPUB ß The Still Epub / still pdf, hour pdf, The Still book, The Still HourThe Still Hour KindleNot the most enticing of covers (in the Banner of Truth edition of 1974). Nor does the title of the book really seem all that suitable for something that is about prayer-life generally. The title gives the impression that it could be a selection of devotional thoughts for the daily 'quiet time', rather than a discussion of the difficulties we have when trying to pray.

    It's a short little book, quick to read, though sometimes the sentences are constructed a little awkwardly which slows things down a little as you try to puzzle out what is being said.

    The book is good at putting into words things that we have experienced but don't know how to express. Or it helps to diagnose the underlying cause behind all the symptoms we are experiencing. A
