Full Product Description
How much do we really know about prayer?
About what it is, what it does, and where it can lead us?
For years now Pete Greig has made it his cause and calling to open up prayer, and through it drastically alter what we think as possible. This is what inspired the 24-7 Prayer Movement. The idea of committing so wholly to prayer that not a single hour is left unfilled with prayer. Red Moon Rising bore witness to this movement, charting its first five years and the changes that came with total commitment to prayer.
Now, in Dirty Glory, Pete Greig deepens his exploration of prayer by looking at how encountering God through prayer, and what his presence achieves, is still the same powerful rejection of back-slapping status quo.
This is a book for the dissatisfied; those people who don't seek change, but expect it.
These true stories of God's phenomenal impact across the world are not just stories to give you hope. They're there to stretch your belief in what is possible with God,to seek Glory in the ruin and rubble, and to bring action in despair.
Dirty Glory won't inspire you to pray with comfy stories or healing, but rather show that there is only ever one response to wanting to see God move...To Pray and to Go.
Dirty Glory by Pete Greig was published by Hodder & Stoughton in October 2016 and is our 31st best seller. The ISBN for Dirty Glory is 9781473631700.

About the Author
"Pete Greig is a unique voice in the church, and this is a unique book. His words cut through any unnecessary religiosity but always remain reverent. Pete argues that the pressing need today is not for greater spiritual activity but for greater spiritual authority--and that the key to this is prayer..." - Matt Redman
"This book will challenge you to think bigger, risk more, and love recklessly. It's a reminder that we are invited into the adventure of a lifetime: knowing God and making him known." - Tim Hughes
"Few people stir my heart and challenge my faith like Pete Greig.In Red Moon Rising and now with Dirty Glory, Pete steps into my walk with Jesus and calls me to a journey of prayer that is raw and challenges the status quo at every turn. Before I was even through the introduction of Dirty Glory, I could feel my heart coming alive to what Jesus calls every believer to. That is a life lived with radical abandonment and childlike faith. A passion to see others experience the real and authentic touch of God in their lives. We were never meant to settle for a safe Christian existence; we were always meant to live on the edge, in the middle of the chaos, lifting up our hearts in prayer. We are to reach out to the broken and destitute. I am so grateful for the voice that Pete has been in my life, calling me out of the mundane and into the radical life of following Jesus and praying as he prayed." - Banning Leibscher
