It’s time you learned from the legend of Honi the Circle Maker - a man bold enough to draw a circle in the sand and not budge from inside it until God answered his prayers for his people. What impossibly big dream is God calling you to draw a prayer circle around? Sharing inspiring stories from his own experiences as a circle maker, Mark Batterson will help you uncover your heart’s deepest desires and God-given dreams and unleash them through the kind of audacious prayer that God delights to answer.

Unfortunately this book is not biblically sound. The call of Christian's, ALL christians, is to make disciples, who make disciples. The Church, is the body of Christ. The author of this books, almost NEVER mentions this. His definition of the church, according to this book, is a building. An institution. A corporation. His idea of a "growing church" is to get 10's of 1000's of proclaiming christians in a big building a few times a week. This isn't at all how we see the actual church of Jesus Christ in the new testament. I know this book is about prayer, but if you don't understand the fundamental truths of God's word, in regard to His church, prayers about everything else seem to pail in comparison.

You were made to make disciples. Jesus gave His followers a command: “Follow Me.” And a promise: “I will equip you to find others to follow Me.” We were made to make disciples. Designed for use in discipleship relationships and other focused settings, Multiply will equip you to carry out Jesus’ ministry. Each of the 24 sessions in the audio book corresponds with an online video at www.multiplymovement.com, where New York Times best-selling author David Platt joins Francis Chan in guiding you through each part of Multiply.

This book will answer the question. Francis helps redirect the confused Christian world on the topic of what it means to be a Christian, and what the church is.
