I'm a big fan of Tim Keller, and was curious to read his take on prayer. In general, this book is unlike his others in that this is more or less a summary of the research and reading he's done over his life; he doesn't synthesize this information into any central argument.

First, some criticisms: since the book is more reportage than summary, it lacks a central thrust carrying the reader through. It gets repetitious. After finishing it, I felt like the final chapter was really the only one I needed. In general, it takes too long to make its points. Keller takes quotes from famous theologians and explains them at length, when such explanation isn't really necessary (the quotes are self-explanatory). He also takes pains to explain basic theological concepts repeatedly throughout the book, making it seem that this book is written for either very new Christians, or Christians who don't have the Reformed theological background necessary to understand the points he wants to make. I may not be the target audience here, so my impatience with this might be a moot point. But he also comes up with numerous ways to improve one's prayer life that seem very weighty and labor-intensive, that might overwhelm a newly minted or theologically shallow Christian. So I'm not sure who his target audience really is. I also think that he sets the bar very, very high, and I think he could have included more language to reassure readers that it represents an ideal, and probably not what you will actually be able to achieve, especially at first.

That being said, the ideas he presents to improve your prayer life are interesting and helpful, and I look forward to trying to implement some of them. I also really appreciated the breakdown of the Lord's Prayer with the thought of Augustine, Luther and Calvin summarized neatly together. I will probably be referring back to that frequently. This book could also serve as a helpful guide to the thought of these theologians (and others, such as Jonathan Edwards and John Owen) for those who don't have time or the wherewithal to actually read the original sources themselves.

In general, I'd recommend this to Christians who are either new to the faith and/or relatively unfamiliar with Reformed theology, and who would like to attain a rich, deep, authentic prayer life. I'd also recommend portions of it to those who want to acquaint themselves with the thoughts of pivotal theologians, skipping over the basic theology they're probably already familiar with. ( )

(3) Luther on prayer (89-96)
(4) Calvin on prayer (97-105) ( )

Not what I was expecting but very good. Keller takes somewhat of an historical approach walking through Calvin Luther, Augustine's prayer practices and giving practical help on how to make prayer a routine part of life. ( )
