Book Review : The Prayer of Protection

This is my first Joesph Prince book. I had never heard of him before reading this book. 

I have to admit I was nervous when I received this book for review. Typically I am not a fan of religious people with large following. I don't watch preachers and pastors on television either. I often feel sometimes those people are a bit misguided. This book, on the other hand, isn't half bad. 

The book has a strong focus on Psalm 91. It is analyzed verse by verse. I enjoyed the in-depth look of one of the psalms but wished there was a bigger range of verses. It felt very constrained. When there are many other bible verses about how God's children are always protected. I really did enjoy the way he debunked some misconceptions some Christians have about our relationship with Jesus. 

He uses biblical stories that have a purpose and real-life testimonies of people, that are supposedly like you and me, to share the power of the Word and this psalm. 

The worst thing for me about this book is the lazy almost condescending writing style. I feel as if the author doesn't want to be here, or believes he is explaining something to child. The tone is both annoying and very insulting. I hate the pep talk, and the your life must be so bad vibe the author gives. 

I believe this book could be good for new and older  Christians that are interested in growing with the Lord. If you struggle with fear and anxiety I encourage you to give this book a chance.
