Tony and Elizabeth Jordan have it all - great jobs, a beautiful daughter, and their dream house. But appearances can be deceiving. Their world is actually crumbling under the strain of a failing marriage. While Tony basks in his professional success and flirts with temptation, Elizabeth resigns herself to increasing bitterness. But their lives take an unexpected turn when Elizabeth meets her newest client, Miss Clara, a wise, older widow who challenges Elizabeth to start fighting for her family instead of fighting against her husband.
From the award-winning creators of Fireproof and Courageous comes War Room, a compelling drama with humor and heart that explores the power that prayer can have over marriages, parenting, careers, friendships, and every other area of our lives.

This wasn't just a book, or entertainment, this was ministry to me right when I needed it the most. Wonderfully read, excellent in every way.
If you saw the movie, the book is about 98% word for word of the movie. There are slight variations but not much. So no need to get the book if you've seen the movie. Sometimes the book provides further insight into a story, but not here, the two are virtually word for word identical.
But It is a good book with a Powerful message nonetheless.
And it should inspire you to Pray and to believe in the Power of Prayer.
This book deserves more than 5 stars. The content and the delivery are excellent! Plus there is a sports action scene that had me glued to my player. I highly recommend it.
There will probably be something in this book related to your faith that will speak to you no matter who you are or where you are in life. The underlying message this book provides is warm and inspiring. I understand my needs vs my wants much better too in my life. The narrator does a good job. This is a book you will want more from but the end does not leave you hanging.
Loved this book. Lots of great lessons and wisdom. Well read and written. Now I want my own room so I can pray for my family friends in the world
The author describes each character and situation with very vivid images. It was interesting how so many of the characters can hit so close to home in their various challenges.
The story describes the events of several characters and how God was weaving working in each of their lives, even before they realized it themselves.
Clara, an elderly grandmother, is a very easy person to like. She's never met a stranger, or at least they didn't stay that way for long! She has a heart that longs for God, and a true listening ear, not only for God's voice, but of those who surround her.
Get ready to laugh out loud! At various times in the story, there will be a situation that you may have found yourself in, and can now see the humor. Even in trying and desperate times, God loves to hear us laugh!
This is an enjoyable and inspirational story that will be hard to walk away from. It's a well worth bargain for the entertainment and truth that you could learn.
"Absolutely Beautiful & Motivational"
A great read & encouraged me to pray more. It made me understand the value of personal time with God. I have decided to have a prayer room myself.
I'm really impressed by what I have read in war room. The only problem I had is that it kept hanging. It however kept my earphones glued to my ears. An awesome book indeed.
"Enjoyed and encouraged"
Loved it as I was able to listen while doing my work. The book has given me ideas to work on my prayer life, having a strategy is indeed a must! I was also moved by the words "ask God and move out of the way and let him do the work!"
"inspirational story. wow."
how to make prayer part of your every day life. this story shows how easy it is to fight for your family in prayer. Everyone needs a war room. I have one now.
Took a while to get into it, but overall I found it enjoyable and inspiring.
A thought provoking, life affecting and beautifully narrated book. Having previously watched the excellent movie, the book provides the detail that it is impossible to squeeze into 90 minutes. I found myself being re-introduced to a world that I thought I knew but in which there is so much more to find. It has started a change in my focus and will lead to a more dedicated life of prayer. I strongly recommend this book to everyone and anyone who believes there is more than they have found.
"my favourite book"
I love the book & film. I say Raise Me up Lord, raise me up!
Every woman, married or single should hold fast to the moral of the story ; we all need a quiet place and time set aside in which to meet with the Lord.
"As amazing as the movie!"
I loved this so much!! It is as compelling and as convicting and inspiring as the movie. It's the perfect accompaniment.
I enjoyed this story from beginning to end. I have not seen the film even though all my friends have said I should. But I don't feel I need to now as this audiobook has been simply wonderful. The story was beautiful and beautifully told/performed in my humble opinion. I highly recommend this even if it's only for encouragement in your prayer life although it's more than that.
