The Barber Who Wanted to Pray by R.C. Sproul



Book - The Barber Who Wanted to Pray

Author - R. C. Sproul

Publisher - Crossway

Hardcover, 30 pages.

Ages - 8 and up






The book contains gorgeous, inspiring paintings by T. Lively Fluharty.  These bring the story alive and make it delightful!

The very first page is of a father sitting at the kitchen table, with his six children, praying together and reading the Bible.  It is precious!

One of the sweet children asks her father to help her learn to pray.

He explains by telling the children a story that was passed down by his grandfather.   It is about a Barber, whose customer is a wanted man - an outlaw. This man is Martin Luther, the Reformer.   We learn some amazing things about the Christian faith and about deep and abiding prayers.

On the last page of the book, you will find, "The Ten Commandments,"  "The Lord's Prayer,"  and "The Apostles' Creed."

This is an inspiring book and would be a great blessing as a bedtime story for children.
