Rich devotional reflections on the Lord's Prayer from an esteemed biblical scholar
In The Lord and His Prayer, a series of pastoral reflections, N. T. Wright explores how the Lord's Prayer sums up Jesus' own agenda within his first-century setting.
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. He demonstrates how grasping the Lord's Prayer in its original setting can be the starting point for a fresh understanding of Christian spirituality and the life of prayer. This deeply devotional book will stimulate and refresh the heart and mind of any reader.
