The Barber Who Wanted to Pray, by R.C. Sproul, is a children’s picture book about Martin Luther and a method of prayer that he taught, using the Lord’s prayer, The Apostles Creed, and the Ten Commandments. The story is enjoyable and the lessons in prayer are very helpful, even for adults!
Here is a prayer that Emily wrote after reading the book:
Our God who art in heaven hallowed be thy name… Lord help me to remember who is in charge. Please drag me away from bad temptations. Please take care of those who have not even heard of you. Let me read your word and believe in it. Please let it dwell inside of me. Amen.
The paintings in this book (by T. Lively Fluharty) are absolutely beautiful and really add to the message of the book.
I love good quality children’s books and highly recommend this one as an addition to any home library! The Barber Who Wanted to Pray retails for $17.99 ($9.99 e-book).
I received a free copy of this book as a member of the Crossway Book Review Program. All opinions are my own.
