The Praying Christ: A Study of Jesus' Doctrine and Practice of Prayer Mar 22, 2006
This is an excellent biblical-theological resource on the Prayer life of Jesus as well as His teaching on the practice of prayer.
The following is an outline of the book:
1. Jesus' teaching on prayer--broad overview 2. Jesus' personal prayer life--emphasizing Luke's gospel especially 3. Jesus' prayer in John 17 4. The Lord's Prayer in Matthew 6 5. The High Priestly Ministry of Christ--a very appropriate inclusion considering the subject of prayer and the Messiah 6. Old Testament material on prayer--study of the concept "Wait on the LORD" in the OT and word studies from Isaiah and the Psalms; included because the OT had a "formative influence" on Christ's prayer life
Thomson also includes a bibliography for each chapter.
After researching bibliographies for books on the prayer life of Christ, I was impressed to buy Thomson's book because it is devoted entirely to the prayer life of Christ and His teaching on prayer. I believe that this book's greatest asset is the fact that it is a broad overview of the subject that does not sacrifice depth for the sake of breadth. As such it makes an excellent introduction to the subject. I have referred to it many times as I have taught on the subject of Christ's prayer life.
