“The Lord & His Prayer” by N.T. Wright


From the back cover:

“Taking the Lord’s Prayer clause by clause, Wright locates this prayer within the historical life and work of Jesus and allows the prayer’s devotional application to grow out of its historical context.  Grasping the Lord’s Prayer in its original setting can be the starting point of a fresh understanding of Christian spirituality and the life of prayer.  This is spirituality to stimulate and refresh both the heart and the mind.”

This book delivers!  Tom Wright pulls the Lord’s Prayer off our cute kitchen plaques and holds it up for us to see  in the light of God’s grand Kingdom agenda.  Though short in length, the book paints a vivid picture of both the Lord’s vision and provision within the framework of this familiar prayer.  After reading this book, you may never prayer the Lord’s Prayer the same way again!
