The Circle Maker (Mark Batterson)
The circle aspect of it is interesting. The idea is that we need to circle things we are praying for or about, like Israelites did when the caused the walls of Jericho to fall down. (Joshua 6) He also encourages the reader to circle miracles in the Bible. It is all built on the legend of Honi, a man who prayed for rain after several years of drought. He drew a circle and called down the rain. I thought it was interesting that he would start the book with a legend, rather than a biblical story, but it worked.
All in all a good read. It is easy to read and has a lot of stories, both personal and biblical.
