When a practicing physician and an influential pastor combine to write a book on prayer the union of the two points of view is bound to produce some unusual results. That the pastor is a colleague and the doctor is personal physician to the Rev. Norman Vincent Peale (who writes the Foreword) suggests that the book will be directed to any literate Christian. The reader quickly finds both assumptions true. This book will be given by pastors to people seeking to strengthen their prayer life. It will pass from hand to hand. Many copies will be gift-wrapped for birthday or Christmas presents. Of special use to its readers will be the strong chapters on the unique contributioin of prayer to the fulfillment of each man's potential, and the thoughtful anthology appended of prayers that will enrich the devotional life.
