Reviews - What do customers think about The Disciples' Prayer: An Intimate Phrase by Phrase Journey Through the Lord's Prayer?
Festooning "Our Father" May 17, 2002
One of CSLewis' strategies for prayer was to "festoon the Lord's Prayer," using the words as a scaffold or frame on which to drape the particularities of his own situation. Disciples' Prayer will help the reader do just that. The chapters lead the reader through the prayer in a methodical and meditative analysis of language and concept. Such an analysis would be academic at best and irrelevant at worst if it were not consistently related to real, contemporary living. The author does not leave us with a set of constructs that have no practical implications. Prayer is a matter of daily incarnational living as well as a matter of words. Both are clearly explicated in this small but powerful volume.
