Summary
"Throughout the centuries, Christian tradition has taught us to end prayers with amen. But the Bible is full of stories and passages where God's people started their prayers with amen. Why? As Beth Guckenberger shows, amen is more than just a way to punctuate a conversation with the God of the Universe. Amen is a declaration of who God is and who we are in relation to him. It is a moment of submission and worship, saying "So be it" to a Sovereignty that holds all things, and acknowledging 'It is as you say' to him who holds our lives"--Back cover
