Excellent book and written in everyday language that made it fun to read. Jared dares to be open and vulnerable - not holding much back. I enjoyed it so much I read it twice through. If you've ever given any thought to prayer - good or bad - try this book. I came away from it thinking differently about prayer and all the "baggage" I've attached to it....stuff like, "is this the right way to pray"; "What's the use?"; "what do you mean...I have to pray 'this' prayer in order to be part of 'that' tribe?" and so on. Jared's experiences and thoughts on the page helped me to realize prayer and praying is special and it's normal and should be whatever feels right to me. It is a conversation with the "Great Mystery" - whatever one defines that to be.
