Audio book of the Week - Praying God's Word by Beth Moore

Praying God's Word: Breaking Free from Spiritual Strongholds Parying God's Word by Beth Moore
narrated by Cynthia Holloway

 Popular speaker and bestselling author Beth Moore writes that one of the purposes of Praying God's Word: Breaking Free from Spiritual Strongholds is to help readers "downsize anything that has a hold on you," including pride, addiction, depression, and lack of forgiveness. This is no name-it-and-claim-it book; rather, it's a thoughtful guide for structured prayer, using the Bible as the framework to build upon. She invites readers to demolish their particular strongholds with "two sticks of dynamite: scripture and prayer," and gives both those new to prayer and seasoned prayer veterans the ability to do so. Chapters are arranged topically, and there are blank pages included for personalized prayers on each subject. To emphasize her points, Moore also scatters nuggets of wisdom throughout the text from writers such as Jim Cymbala, Kay Arthur, Charles Spurgeon, and Francis Frangipane. Even when the "stronghold" has been demolished, Moore urges readers to continue to pray God's Word for general maintenance purposes. It's a message that has found a tremendous amount of resonance with readers for its life-changing potential. --Cindy Crosby

My Take:
I absolutely love Beth Moore.  I have done several of her Bible studies, watched her on TV, listened to cds and books by her.  all of the books that I have listened to by her up until this one she had read herself.  I think that I prefer it that way.  Not that the narrator of this book did a bad job, quite the opposite in fact, but because I just love the personal element that this adds to the book. 

Thtis book is about using God's word as a starting point for our prayers.  It gives several strongholds and then proceeds to tell you how to pray.  I think this would be great if it was read.  Not so much as an audio.  I feel I would have gotten more from the subject matter if I had read the book other that listen to it. 

The audio was good and the narrator does a great job, but because of the subject matter I feel it would be bettter read.    

I listened to this from my personal library.
