Many books have been written about the “Prayer of Jabez.” Found in 1 Chronicles 4:9-10, it describes the prayer that an obscure man—one whose name means, “Pain”—uttered to God. It is a simple, yet heartfelt prayer.

Most books tend to focus on his prayer and its application to our lives; but not this one.

In Jabez: Conceived in Pain, Delivered in Victory, Bob has breathed life into the ancient bones of an unknown man. It is the story about Jabez, and why he prayed his prayer. At each stage of his life, he prays a part of his prayer, and each phrase—and the way God responds—shapes his life during that season.

Journey back into the dawn of time, back to an age when the printed word consisted of brush strokes on parchment and when history was remembered through the telling—and retelling—of the ancient stories. Set in ancient Israel nearly 3,000 years ago, Jabez: Conceived in Pain, Delivered in Victory will awaken your senses to a bygone day and a forgotten culture. Listen to Jabez tell his life story to his great-grandson. In the end, you will discover the historical significance of the “Prayer of Jabez,” and how it shaped a nation.

But most of all, you will learn why the story of Jabez is a story that matters.
