This particular edition is in a Paperback format. I'm generally a non-fiction kind of gal but this has widened my reading horizons. After all, we'd started praying together at the Chicago Women's Conference last spring,and we'd been through a lot already as spiritual sisters. I'm so excited about the messages given in these books! Once a month this group gets together to worship God and pray for each other. Jodi is still recovering from the accident that ended the first book. Extremely well written and very believable! Neta's characters are big as life - they are real.

There was not a lot of action in this edition, but it was a squeaky clean and pleasant enough read.
Yadda Yadda Prayer Group Gets Down Again wasn't afraid to deal with cultural and racial differences and how even as Christians we can struggle with prejudices and stereotypes and I think that's okay, as long as we acknowledge these feelings as being outside of the will of God and pray for them to be removed from our hearts.
