Quench Book Review

Pete Greig - Dirty Glory - our top seller this year How much do we really know about prayer? About what it is, what it does, and where it can lead us?  In Dirty Glory, Pete Greig deepens his exploration of prayer by looking at encountering God through prayer and what God's presence achieves.  This is a book for the dissatisfied.  These true stories of God's phenomenal impact across the world are not just stories to give you hope. They're there to stretch your belief in what is possible with God, to seek Glory in the ruin and rubble, and to bring action in despair.  Shop address:19 Queen Street, Maidenhead, Berkshire, SL6 1NB.
