With Open Hands

Nouwen met with 25 of his students to discuss the topic of prayer and this is the output of those discussions.

I really enjoyed this episode as the adventure has become a whole lot more intriguing now. Ronie has done a great job making the reader guess as to what is to happen next by having the team chase down particular 'leads' only to find there are even mo...more

After the frenetic pace of the first 2 parts, Zulu slowed a little in this one. But that's okay as it helped me catch my breath and think more about each of the characters.

“I have a handful of prayers that I pray all the time... One is that God will put my books into the right hands at the right times. I've prayed this prayer thousands of times, and God has answered it in dramatic fashion countless times. The right book in the right hands at the right time can save a marriage, avert a mistake, demand a decision, plant a seed, conceive a dream, solve a problem, and prompt a prayer. That is why I write. And that's why, for me, a book sold is not a book sold; a book sold is a prayer answered. I don't know the name and situation of every reader, but God does, and that's all that matters.”

Pete, it came out well, didn't it. Unfortunately, a slight delay in availability of the book. Another 3 weeks now.

I also got advised this week, Kindle/ebook is only being released when UK release occurs in late March.

All the best.
