This was an awesome read even though Scripture does not give any more information on Jabez other than his prayer. I found it very interesting to read. The author did an awesome job of including other scripture and stories to make this more interesting.
I highly recommend it to anyone that has read or studied the Prayer of Jabez.
From the back cover: "You know the prayer... Now you can know the story.
Follow this compelling story of two pain-stricken people--a young man and his mother--in one of the Bible's most turbulent eras. Experience the many-sided paradox of blessing amid struggle and one man's relentless, unshakable pursuit of God's hand upon his life."
An excellent story that grips you from the first page!
