by Phillip G. Camp & Tremper Longman III
The Old Testament is the ultimate sourcebook for prayer.
The pages of the Old Testament reveal that prayer stands at the heart of ancient Israel's relationship with God. This book is a close study of what Israel's prayers reveal about their understandings of God, and each chapter is filled with practical suggestions for how Christians can use the Old Testament to cultivate their own prayer life.
The Old Testament is more than a history. Make it a sourcebook for your everyday prayers.
