Book Review- City on our knees- TobyMac

When we step across the line we can sail across the seaCity on our knees

Amazing, beautiful things happen when people have the courage to live, work, and pray in the spirit of unity and peace. Often, though, to make these amazing things happen, we have to step out of our comfort zone and into a world we find uncomfortable or intimidating. Sometimes that world is physical; other times it can be emotional, relational, or spiritual.

City on Our Knees shows this, encouraging you to take the first step. It offers stories of people who have stepped across lines. Lines of discrimination, persecution, doubt, prejudice, pride, bitterness, self-isolation, and despair. I pray and hope that you will be inspired to see how just one person, or one small group, can be a mechanism for change. 

God can use us right here. Right now. All we need is faith that He has our best in mind. And believe me—He does.



This book is a good reminder of what God is currently doing in the world around us, the power of prayer and the good in people.  This book reminded me a lot of the book Jesus Freaks that came out several years ago with DCTalk.

One of my favourite parts of the book is The Prayer of St. Patrick.  Powerful, powerful words.  Just loved it!

I would recommend this book to anyone who wants a nice, easy, encouraging read.  It was a nice book to flip through and read when I was waiting at various appointments etc.  I, myself enjoy deeper, challenging books but this was a quick, easy read with encouraging stories that would be good to share within a message or to a youth group.  Check it out.
