Carson shows how Paul's prayer life can transform Christians and liberate them from spiritual superficiality. He calls church leaders to turn from focusing on frenetic activity and meaningless emotion and instead teach their people to intimately know God and His power through prayer.
"[This book] provides a . . . pointed argument that the greatest need for churches today is not education, evangelism, or programs, but a deeper knowledge of God. It contributes to filling that need by assisting those who read it to a fuller life of prayer."
