Publisher Description

With over one million copies sold, New York Times bestseller The Circle Maker is a must-read for revolutionizing your prayer life. Get ready to experience new breakthroughs, knowing that bold prayers honor God and God honors bold prayers.

Do you ever sense that there's far more to prayer than what you're experiencing? Are you praying over your impossible dreams and greatest fears? Do you feel like something is holding you back in your prayer life?

It's time you learned from the legend of Honi the Circle Maker. When his land was drought-stricken in ancient times, Honi ha-M'agel drew a circle in the sand, stepped inside it, and wouldn't budge until God answered his petition for rain. Honi's story transformed author Mark Batterson's own experience with prayer and inspired him to document his journey to praying more powerful prayers in The Circle Maker.

Sharing inspiring stories from modern-day circle makers as well as his own experiences, Mark imparts the timeless wisdom and encouragement you need to:
Discern God's will for your lifeUncover your heart's hidden desiresPursue God-sized dreamsConnect with God in fresh waysDeepen your faith and your relationship with prayerDraw prayer circles around your family, your community, your challenges, and your dreams
 The Circle Maker includes insights about the ways that God answers prayer along with stories that add convincing proof to the reality that God is able to do exceedingly far greater than all we could ask or imagine.

Learn for yourself that drawing prayer circles around our dreams isn't just a way that we accomplish great things for God--it's a way that God accomplishes great things in us.

Truly Powerful & Blessed

This book was absolutely written out of a prayer. So completely obvious. This book has deeply transformed my life and I plan on reading it over and over as a regular part of my life. ❤️

Discernment anyone?

I just had this book recommended to me - my spiritual antenna were immediately up when it was introduced to us as coming from a book of Jewish legends. And during a time when God was not speaking. Being a Christian who lives under the New Covenant, and not a Jew, I immediately wondered how this fable was supposed to apply to me.
Having done some reading of commentaries on this book, as well as some analysis of it from some apolgetics websites, I would strongly - strongly - suggest examining the roots of this book and its beliefs. I am about 4 chapters in to the audiobook, and I already sense an awful lot of my works and effort in getting God to move, more of my own sacrifices, etc. than resting in what Jesus has already done, and walking in simple faith on Him and the receipt of the promises of God by faith in Him. Pray? Of course, but this "new" way, based on a Jewish fable, just does not seem Biblical. You can have "Honi" - I'll take Jesus.
