Neglected but Vital Resource on Prayer May 2, 2006
Neglected Doctrine (Prayer) by Neglected Theologian (Chemnitz). So interesting that this work on prayer was translated so early (circa 1598) into English in Cambridge. Copies of this survived to be updated into 21st century language by seminarian Williams.
Chemnitz prefaces his petition by petition exposition of Jesus' prayer by stating why pray examination. He concludes rightly with 8 benefits/blessings: small number of words; who to pray to; how and what for; what to ask; in what order; by what means; for what end.
This fine insight into original Greek and Hebrew texts is richly seasoned with church fathers and Luther.
Worthy to be a utilized and promoted prayer aid.
Short, yet profound discussion of the Lord's Prayer Sep 23, 2005
In this book, Chemnitz steps through the Lord's Prayer, petition by petition, and does what he does best: provide data(other Bible passages, church father quotes) and thought-provoking examples. And LOTS of them. While this work is very short, it is dense in thought. A book that is not meant to be read, but studied and meditated upon, working through the passages and studying their contexts. At the end of every petition, Chemnitz asks the reader to take what he said, and reflect on the prayer with 4 questions. If you take the time to digest Chemnitz' words with prayer and meditation, you will take away a lot on the Lord's Prayer. Highly recommended!
