The Lord's Prayer: The Prayer and Teaching of Jesus

Front Cover
AuthorHouse, 2005 M01 24 - 152 pages

The Lords Prayer the prayer Jesus taught to his disciples is so familiar that we say it by rote but its few verses sum up everything Jesus taught, and for which he lived and died.

Brown reviews each verse, in the context of the Gospels, so the reader can learn what Jesus prayer tells us about:

-- our relation to God

-- praying and what to pray for

-- the coming of the kingdom

-- our daily bread our physical and spiritual sustenance

-- forgiveness

-- temptation

--deliverance from evil

Meredith Brown applies his scholars mind and his faithful heart to this very useful appreciation of the central prayer of the Christian life.Whether read in solitary or in a study group, this is a book to deepen and enliven faith.

Hays Rockwell, ninth bishop of the Episcopal Church inMissouri(retired)
