“The reality of these insights into prayer
will greatly impact your walk with God.”
– An Amazon Reviewer –
This is to say ‘hello’ to Dr. Ben Jennings, if he’s still around. ‘Hi Ben! I am re-reading your excellent “…Arena…” book. It is utterly motivating and good. Thank you for writing it. I did get married; did you hear? Seventeen years ago. She is wonderful and beautiful, and such a person of prayer. I am translating and teaching the Bible, and evangelizing. I still raise support, thank you Ellis Goldstein. Okay, bye for now. Best to Mary Jean. With love, Chris.
I also enjoyed Ben Jennings’ book, The Arena of Prayer. It was helpful in my understanding of the roles of the different persons of God in prayer (the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit). I don’t know if Ben Jennings will see this comment, but I hope he sees your encouragement.
