As a doctor, counselor, and Christian leader, Dr. Pablo Martinez, has used his experience to develop ways for us to determine our basic personality type and how it relates to praying.  He also discusses emotional problems and how prayer is a love relationship with God.

Dr. Martinez also includes a section on the apologetics of prayer, which includes a psychiatrist’s viewpoint and the difference between Christian prayer and Eastern meditation.

Excerpt from the Book!

About the Author-

Dr. Pablo Martinez is a medical doctor and psychiatrist in Barcelona.  He has been a plenary Bible teacher, one of the founding council of the London Institute for Contemporary Christianity, and has served as an elder at his local church for almost 25 years.  He has written two other books and is married to Marta, who is also a medical doctor.

My thoughts- I thought this book was interesting.  I was able to determine my personality type and how it related to how I pray.  With the information I gathered I can now improve the way I pray and what I pray, so I can have a more intimate relationship with God.

My favorite part of the book was the chapter called, “The Therapeutic Value of Prayer.”  I was glad to learn how prayer helps us to have a love relationship with God.  The chapter on overcoming difficulties was very helpful as well.  It showed me what I can do when I have problems in prayer.

I didn’t think the chapter, “Questions and Answers” was necessary because most of the questions had already been answered in other parts of the book.

I would recommend this book, because it can show you how to become more fluent in prayer.
