Pray About Everything: Cultivating God-Dependency Book Cover Pray About Everything: Cultivating God-Dependency
Paul Tautges
Shepherd Press
June 5, 2017

Believers need to learn to pray about everything, but so many unanswered questions hinder our progress.

  • What does it mean to pray in Jesus’ name?
  • How do I pray for my non-Christian friends?
  • When does the Holy Spirit pray for me?

In this book, a seasoned pastor and counselor answers these questions—and many more—by effectively instructing us with biblical principles, examples, and commands. By doing so, he encourages us to develop a life of prayer. Pastors, elders, and small group leaders will also find this book an indispensable help to cultivating an atmosphere of God-dependency in their local church.

Pray About Everything delivers an urgent call for believers to commit themselves to regular and systematic heartfelt prayer as an essential spiritual discipline for the Christian life.

Who should read this book?

  • Christians at varying stages of maturity
  • Small-group or prayer-group leaders
  • Preachers, ministers, Bible teachers
  • Worship leaders
  • Church prayer leaders

This week the Cross Focused Reviewers are sharing their thoughts about Paul Tautges’ new book Pray About Everything.

“This book is a good balance of theological and practical matters so that when one finishes this study, they will have a better understanding of what prayer is…”
Reviewer: Dan Doll
Rating: 5 Stars

“I hope that other pastors will read this book and be inspired to place a renewed emphasis on prayer in their churches.”
Reviewer: Steven Dressen
Rating: 5 Stars

“Because most of the chapters can be read in about ten minutes’ time, this book is great for personal devotions or Bible study groups because it leave you enough time to put into practice what you’re talking about.”
Reviewer: Andrew Wencl
Rating: 5 Stars

“…100 pages packed full of information to help send you on your way to a deeper study or set you up in a sermon, or small group discussion to a Bible Study just from this book. ”
Reviewer: Rosemary Swinehart
Rating: 5 Stars

“…a handbook, providing succinct instruction for leader and layman alike.”
Reviewer: Lesley Eischen
Rating: 4 Stars

“This book will be one to turn to again and again and to give as gifts to those who have questions about prayer and who don’t need to get bogged down with information. “Pray About Everything” is short and simple, but includes a wealth of information and help.”
Reviewer: Jill Jones
Rating: 5 Stars

“This was a good info-packed, yet concise and easy-to-read book on prayer. It gave a good practicality to prayer which is important. It was presented in a gospel-centered way. For all of those reasons, I really enjoyed this book. More books are needed like this on prayer. You will benefit from reading it.”
Reviewer: Angela Parsley
Rating: 4 Stars

“Tautges is right. His presentation and process are Scriptural. His book leads us to go forth and pray.”
Reviewer: Peter Butler, Jr.
Rating: 5 Stars

“I can’t recommend this book enough. The Body of Christ today is malnourished and suffering from a lack of prayer in it’s spiritual diet. Pray About Everything is a gift to the Church and I am hoping.. I am praying that it will be picked up and read by a significant majority of the Church and through it, we might bring glory and honor to our Lord as we grow in grace and sanctification.”
Reviewer: Aaron Cerda
Rating: 5 Stars

“This book is far from a full-orbed treatment on prayer. But it is not intended to be so. Rather, the author intended to help the reader understand his/her dependency upon God and how that is manifested in prayer, not only in the individual’s life but also in the life of the larger church body. The book certainly accomplishes that task and is a wonderful resource for any believer to work through… As you work through the truths of this book, you will find yourself learning how to implement its principles into your prayer life for years to come.”
Reviewer: Zack Ford
Rating: 5 Stars

“… Gospel-centered, biblical book that will aid the reader in praying according to God’s will as revealed in Scripture. These are the kinds of prayers that God promises to answer.”
Reviewer: Elizabeth Hankins
Rating: 4 Stars

“I am thankful for Tautges and this excellent book. I recommend it for the prayer section of every pastor’s library.”
Reviewer: Chrys Jones
Rating: 4 Stars

Reviewer: Denise McFarland
Rating: 4 Stars

“This short and convicting book points us to thankfulness and reasons for prayer–as well as reasons for suffering.”
Reviewer: Melissa Merritt
Rating: 4 Stars

“Tautges shows his heart for churches to let go of self-dependency and grasp the life-giving God-dependency found in the gospel. As a pastor, I would recommend this book to anyone struggling to cultivate a consistent and meaningful prayer life, and I intend on using it with my own congregation.”
Reviewer: Ryan Reed
Rating: 4 Stars

“I gladly recommend Paul Tautge’s Pray About Everything: Cultivating God-Dependency to every church member and church leader who desires to be a contributing part of a praying church.”
Reviewer: Theron St. John
Rating: 5 Stars

“I appreciated this little book. It stirred my heart toward the LORD.”

Hope for the Same-Sex Attracted Book Cover Hope for the Same-Sex Attracted
Ron Citlau
Bethany House
March 14, 2017

A Message of Hope and Grace

Sometimes in our big-picture discussions about homosexuality and same-sex marriage, we lose sight of the person in the middle of the struggle. Whether that struggler is you or someone you care about, there are two fundamental questions that need to be answered: How can someone with same-sex attraction be faithful to Jesus? And how can everyone else support and encourage them in this pursuit?

With clarity and grace, author and pastor Ron Citlau will help you think through every option the Bible offers--and what it does not. Having personally dealt with same-sex attraction, walked with others still struggling, and pastored those with gay loved ones, he encourages readers to think deeply and biblically about heterosexual marriage, singleness, celibacy, and more.

Discover the remarkable gifts God provides to the same-sex-attracted Christian who desires to faithfully follow Jesus. And learn how others can come alongside them with love, encouragement, and grace.

This week the Cross Focused Reviewers share their thoughts on Hope for the Same-Sex Attracted by Ron Citlau.

“I recommend it to people with same-sex attraction and to the people who minister to them.”
Reviewer: Robert Morton
Rating: 5 Stars

“The discussion of Citlau’s view on sexual identity compared to those of other orthodox Christians was very insightful. In fact an entire book could be devoted to it, and I would read it as well.”
Reviewer: Jonathan Roberts
Rating: 5 Stars

“The points on Why Gay Marriage Cannot Cause Human Flourishing were really good… I personally will now be more compassionate with everyone no matter what their sexual preference because God loves them and I should too!”
Reviewer: Pauline Burnes
Rating: 3 Stars

Hope for the Same-Sex Attracted is just that – a word of hope. With so much focus in the Church today upon the nature of the sin, Ron’s book is a powerful correction and reminder that the Gospel is about transformation, not condemnation. Ron has written a book that will be helpful going forward both for the same-sex struggler and the church called to welcome them in truth and love. I highly recommend it.”
Reviewer: Scott Nichols
Rating: 5 Stars

“Ron not only includes his own testimony but the testimony of several others who live out their Christian faith in spite of their same-sex attraction. He demonstrates that there is hope. He clearly articulates the gospel and the necessity of involvement in the local church. There is much worthwhile in this book, for those struggling with homosexuality and their friends, family and church leaders.”
Reviewer: Greg Wilson
Rating: 4 Stars

“Is Hope for the Same-Sex Attracted the be-all-end-all on this topic? By no means! But of the resources I have read, it is an excellent introduction.”
Reviewer: Joe Westbrook
Rating: 4 Stars

“…a useful resource for churches, leaders and friends seeking to help persons struggling with unwanted same sex attraction. I think everyone interested in this topic would do good to read it.”
Reviewer: Xi Ming
Rating: 4 Stars

“…it could be good to start a conversation about what hope for the Christian who has non traditional sexual attraction patterns looks like.”
Reviewer: Nate Claiborne
Rating: 3 Stars

“This is a book the church and people with same-sex attraction need. Thank you, Ron.”
Reviewer: Peter Butler, Jr.
Rating: 5 Stars

“No matter what side of the fence you are on, this book is extremely relevant, unique and will help you understand sexuality from both sides.”
Reviewer: Sarah Storm
Rating: 4 Stars
