Excellent! A must for all who believe in Christ! Jun 24, 2003
When I was reading this book, I kept on praying to God to forgive my pride and ignorance of overlooking the very deep and wide meaning Christ put into the Lord's Prayer. Now I agree with what Martin Luther said, as quoted by the author, that "I am convinced that when a Christian rightly prays the Lord's Prayer at any time...their praying is more than adequate." and what Dietrich Bonhoeffer said, that "The Lord's Prayer is the quintessence of prayer. A disciple's prayer is founded on and circumscribed by it."
In short, it is a book that no real Christian should miss. Actually, I nearly missed it. Thanks to God, I didnt, because I came across the following on the back cover:-
"Lord, Teach Us to Pray is biblically sound, spiritually rich, and intellectually stimulating. Boers shows the "Our Father" as prayer that is as wide as it is deep: it embraces all humanity's yearnings and touches the inner depths of the human heart. "
