“This is the most comprehensive material that has ever been written on prayer. Jim Rosscup, in his usual and rich manner, has pulled together everything the Scripture has said on prayer and explained it. Not only is this a massive treatment from the Word of God, but from a man who, for twenty years, has been teaching a life transforming course on prayer at The Master’s Seminary. He has been living out these truths and teaching thousands of young ministers to do the same with profound blessing.”
—John MacArthur, Pastor of Grace Community Church; President of The Master’s College and Seminary
