Publisher's Summary

According to Pastor Mark Batterson in this unabridged audio download, The Circle Maker, “Drawing prayer circles around our dreams isn’t just a mechanism whereby we accomplish great things for God. It’s a mechanism whereby God accomplishes great things in us.”
Do you ever sense that there’s far more to prayer, and to God’s vision for your life, than what you’re experiencing? It’s time you learned from the legend of Honi the Circle Maker - a man bold enough to draw a circle in the sand and not budge from inside it until God answered his prayers for his people.
What impossibly big dream is God calling you to draw a prayer circle around? Sharing inspiring stories from his own experiences as a circle maker, Mark Batterson will help you uncover your heart’s deepest desires and God-given dreams and unleash them through the kind of audacious prayer that God delights to answer.

Good but could be shorter.

What did you like best about The Circle Maker? What did you like least?

I liked the message of the book the most. I liked the lengthy and repetitive nature of the book the least. The entire point could have been made in a much shorter version of the book. It also leaves one feeling that "all you have to do is pray like this, and see....your prayers will all be answered like ours were." I believe the author is sincere, not arrogant. Just leaves those of us with unanswered prayers wondering what we did wrong.

This has changed my prayer life.

What did you love best about The Circle Maker?

The author is very expressive and encouraging in detailing how to pray and how to have a better relationship with the Lord. Praying takes time and when we pray, the Lord blesses us with fellowship and answers our prayers. Maybe not always like we want them, but we have hope for even more than we could think to ask for.

What did you like best about this story?

I love Marks description of how much God loves us and wants to bless us more than what we could even ask for. The best line in the book that will stay with me forever is "work like it depends on me and pray like it depends on God". I can and will work hard, but ultimately, it all depends on God working out every detail for His glory.

Have you listened to any of Mark Batterson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, this is the first book of his I have read. I have gifted this book to three other people since I've listened to it twice myself. Each has been totally blessed.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made my heart have hope, hope for more from God. Hope that He wants to give me His blessings for my life.
