An Insider's Guide to Praying for the World by Brian C. Stiller

Goodreads | Amazon
The world is getting smaller. Cutting ourselves off from Christians around the world is not an option. In many countries, the rise of persecution fuels concern over the safety and rights of believers, while other nations that used to be closed to the Gospel are seeing unprecedented numbers of conversions to Christianity. As global ambassador of the World Evangelical Alliance, what Dr. Brian Stiller experiences on the ground in these nations is often counter to our impressions. As he listens to people's ideas and observes their innovations, he invites you to see and hear what he does.

An Insider's Guide to Praying for the World includes country-specific insights calling us to a deeper understanding of the Christian church and witness. Each chapter also provides prayer challenges that come from believers in the country as well as maps and sample prayers. Nations from every continent are included.

Be inspired to learn about other lands – both familiar ones, such as China and Kenya, and ones you may know very little about, like Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. But more important, take part in God's work by praying for the real needs of your brothers and sisters around the world.

An Insider’s Guide to Praying for the World is certainly an interesting and practical idea for a book. Brian C. Stiller uses this book to discuss the presence of the Christian church and believers throughout the world. He tells inspiring and powerful stories of people in various countries and specific ways to pray for them and their communities. Anyone looking for a resource to better understand Christianity around the world and how to pray for its people and their needs would benefit from An Insider’s Guide to Praying for the World. It’s a worthwhile read.

Thanks to Bethany House, I received a copy of An Insider’s Guide to Praying for the World and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
