    I love history and I love reading about those who came before us in the faith Reading bits and pieces about these people is always encouraging because you see so clearly how God works I love the idea behind this book Sharing the dangerous prayers of those who have changed the world is inspiring in so many ways.There is one thing I need to say though As you know, if you ve been around the blog for a minute or two, race and America are important topics to me We can t heal if we don t acknowledge the sins of those before us, so I must ask, why do we keep including certain people in our heroes of faith Two examples in this book are George Whitefield and Jonathan Edwards Whitefield was pro slavery He actively taught that slavery was good and justified it He believed Africans and African Americans were subordinate Edwards himself owned slaves.As Christians, we need to stop praising people who played a hand in keeping one of America s darkest sins alive and running I don t expect our past leaders to have been perfect, but they never realized their sin nor repented The church then and now is made up of millions of people they helped to keep enslaved The ripples of their actions continue today.I m also not saying we remove them from our church history all the reason to actually keep them, as it shows how racism was in the church for centuries but we also don t need to include them in every hall of faith type of book Christians publish We can only move forward when we acknowledge the past.Outside of that, I really liked this collection From voices in ministry, to activists, to artists, this shows how God will use you where you are at They also featured men and women of different backgrounds and cultures.

    Dangerous Prayers 50 Powerful Prayers That Changed the World is compiled by Susan Hill and the portrait illustrations are by Francesca Resta Additional illustrations are by Isabella Grott and Julianne St Clair, and it is published by Thomas Nelson.Dangerous Prayers is a beautiful book that shares 50 prayers and information about Christians throughout history It shares their birth year and death year if applicable , two pages for what they were known for, and a personal prayer from that person The people range from historical figures, cultural icons, political leaders, to saints and martyrs Some of the people are Billy Graham, Martin Luther King, Jr., Abraham Lincoln, Corrie ten Boom, George Washington Carver, Helen Keller, and C.S Lewis just to name a few.The illustrations and portraits in this book are gorgeous I like that there is a brief introduction to who these historical figures were and how they changed history There are inspiring quotes, as well as their prayers to help encourage each of us in our faith.Many of these people, I did not know were Christians It would be an excellent resource book if you have a child or student who is looking for information on historical figures or a start for a biography My sons and I enjoyed reading this together, learning about a different person each night before bed.I think this book can be enjoyed by everyone It is a beautiful glimpse into different parts of history, and how the brave prayers of these amazing people can inspire each of us today.I received a complimentary copy of Dangerous Prayers from BookLook Bloggers, in exchange for a honest review This review originally was published on Raising Samuels Life on April 4, 2019.

    Dangerous Prayers 50 Powerful Prayers That Changed the World is a simple read for both adults and older children It goes into a brief bio for each person and ends with a prayer from them I like and dislike how short the bios are They give you enough information that you get the gist but not enough to really sink into the person s life It does help you not get bored, which would be good for younger readers I also enjoyed the variety of people they chose Here are a few that were in the book Billy Graham, E.M Bounds, Lottie Moon, Helen Keller, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, to name a few I did think having Jesus be one of the biographies was a bit silly.As for the prayers, some were very powerful, and some were not so much a prayer but maybe a hymn or something they wrote on prayer Overall that part was ok I did think the illustrator Francesca Resta did a lovely job I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.

    This book is an absolutely amazing book to have in ones collection, not only because it is such a fascinating read but the illustrations are also stunning, I really think they are frame worthy This book combines the very well know like Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King Jr and the obscure like Dora Yu, Jarena Lee, etc but all have been carefully chosen for the rich impact they have made in the world for their devotion to God and doing His will.One of my favorite things about this book is how their is a quote from each of the people included, they were so thought provoking.This book is such an easy read, but packed with so much insight that it is absolutely perfect This is a great read for old and young alike.I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.

    I received a complimentary copy Lots of faith based reading in this book which also includes famous people While we will never be sure how many other prayers did not make it in the book, I was happy to read the ones that did and think that this would make a really nice read on off time or during a time when you need reflection.

    Even though I wish the biographies were longer and there were than one quote per each, overall this is a great coffee book that I enjoyed and has a huge range of people in it which wins major points in my book Read the full review here
