Prayer: Does It Make Any Difference? (EN248.32YANpi)
Philip Yancey
Polls reveal that ninety percent of people pray. Yet prayer, which should be the most nourishing and uplifting time of the believer's day, can also be frustrating, confusing, and fraught with mystery.
 Writing as a fellow pilgrim, Yancey probes such questions as:
- Is God listening?
- Why should God care about me?
- If God knows everything, what's the point of prayer?
- Why do answers to prayer seem so inconsistent?
- Why does God sometimes seem close and sometimes seem far away?
- How can I make prayer more satisfying?

Various authors
chicken_soup_for_the_christian_womans_soul Stories to open the heart and rekindle the spirit.

Being the Body (EN262COLbb)
Charles Colson
 Many believe Charles Colson and Ellen Vaughn's ''The Body'' to be the watershed book of the past decade. It impacted the Church worldwide, encouraging Christians of diverse backgrounds to see themselves as part of the universal body of Christ.
Now, these acclaimed authors have come together to revisit this crucial subject. The book's classic truths have not changed. But the world we live in has. Christians in America have had their complacency shattered and their beliefs challenged. Around the globe, the clash of worldviews has never been more strident. Before all of us, daily, are the realities of life and death, terror and hope, light and darkness, brokenness and healing. We cannot withdraw to the comfort of our sanctuaries…we must engage. For if ever there were a time to be the Body of Christ in the world, it is now. being_the_body
