Activists Shane Claiborne and Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove show how prayer and action must go together. Their exposition of key Bible passages provides concrete examples of how a life of prayer fuels social engagement and the work of justice. Phrases like give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors take on new meaning when applied to feeding the hungry or advocating for international debt relief.

If you hope to see God change society, you must be an ordinary radical who prays - and then is ready to become the answer to your own prayers.

Listener Opinions

    " If you've read Shane's other books, this will feel very familiar. Some of the same stories were duplicated. While it certainly wasn't an earth shattering book by any means, it was a good reminder that prayer alone is not enough. It must be accompanied by action because God wants to work with and through us to change the world. It was a quick and easy read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elle | 2/9/2014

    " I like this book but I kind of think that every Shane Claiborne book says the exact. same. thing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cary | 2/4/2014

    " A look at three New Testament prayers and what it is that we are asking for! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen | 1/19/2014

    " I really enjoyed this book. The focus on the Lord's Prayer was especially interesting to me. Underlined a lot and took a lot from this book! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 effie | 1/18/2014

    " duuudes, just stop. after reading the 6th or 7th story that is in "the irresistible revolution" and "jesus for president" and every story, interview or video... i stopped reading this. growth is change, growth is NEW. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jason | 1/13/2014

    " One of the better books on prayer. Practical, earthy, and free of sappy Christianese. It's an attempt by a couple of folks more drawn to "action" to learn the "contemplative" life as well and it is better for their willingness to hold those two things together. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jodi Schiedel | 9/14/2013

    " Pretty good book. Strangely, it doesn't actually talk about prayer that much? From what I hear, Claiborne's others are far better than this one so go for them. However, one advantage of this one is the super short number of pages! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris | 9/5/2013

    " A good book on prayer and how Jesus prayed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mike McVey | 8/17/2013

    " Awesome book! Claiborne and Wilson-Hartgrove write a very readable book about our role in prayer. I would recommend to anyone and everyone who struggles with prayer or is a prayer warrior. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Randine | 8/16/2013

    " These two guys are SERIOUS Christians. They are the real deal, modern day people to look at as what Jesus meant to love the poor, serve others, be helpful and pray. They walk the walk. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melanie | 7/26/2013

    " Good points on our responsibility concerning our prayer requests. I noticed that I like titles with colons... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mikaela | 5/16/2013

    " I always love Shaine Claiborne books! Simple and practical. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shannon | 12/30/2012

    " While I agree with the principles of this book, I didn't find it to be a particularly exciting or motivating read. Overall, I was disappointed in the book as I'm a fan of Claiborne. He is an energetic and inspiring public speaker. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate Davis | 10/21/2012

    " Not as in-depth as they could have gone (or as I would have liked them to go), but a great starting point. A very accessible way to start a conversation. It'd be great for a study group. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Redbeardbrownhair | 10/2/2012

    " this was a simple book that reminded me that i am not just an innocent bystander whose job it is to wait on God to act supernaturally. i am a part of the process, and my life can be an answer to someone else's prayer. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 9/20/2012

    " I enjoyed the book because he shares stuff I know in a new way. Important to remember that prayer and service are linked. Prayer gives us the strength to serve and service to the neighbor is where we encounter God. God and neighbor are interwined. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrea | 6/17/2012

    " I really enjoy Shane Claiborne's writings and they definitely give me something to chew on. This book was no exception, although it was shorter and perhaps a bit easier to read. Makes me wonder why I am so drawn to these writings and what impact are they having on my life. God, show me! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Curtis | 3/10/2012

    " Great book, no doubts. Going through three main prayers in the bible (Lords Prayer, John 17, Eph 1) and exploring the implications for believers and the church. Great insights by these two. Worth a read and putting it into practice. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rachael | 7/10/2011

    " Loved the concept, but it felt like it was written in a hurry. The idea could have been further explored, the topic more developed... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amber | 5/25/2011

    " This book had many of the same stories as The Irresistible Revolution but i still enjoyed being reminded of them. Inspiring... "
