Wright offers a fresh understanding of Christian spirituality and the life of prayer.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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Lord and His Prayer?

Well worth the money  Dec 29, 2006
This little book is well worth the money. Wright has brought out the Lord's prayer and put it both in its original context and has shown its application for today. The already/not yet aspect of praying for the Kindom to come. Wright correctly states that the Kindom is the rule of God that has come about in Jesus and that will be consumated at his coming. Every aspect of this prayer has powerful meaning for us today and Wright in no way trivializes the prayer into some nebulous Kingdom idea. I highly recommend this book for every Christian.
Thoghprovoking and challenging  Jun 30, 2006
The Lord's Prayer has been with me from childhood. In my language (Norwegian) we have a hymn with some very powerful words that sound about as follows: "With the Lord's prayer in covenant, thou shalt never shudder". - All the same it may be difficult sometimes to really appreciate what Jesus meant with the different parts of the prayer he taught us. For instance, what does "thy kingdom come" really mean? And why should God potentially "lead us into temptation"? Those and many other questions have come to me throughout the years.

Tom Wright's book answers many such questions. Based on a thorough study of the culture in Palestine at the time of Jesus and Jesus' native language (Aramaic), the author explains what he believes Jesus really meant, and he also manages to make Jesus' message alive to us in such a way that it may change the lives of many people.

I really hope many of you will read and contemplate on "The LORD and His Prayer" by Tom Wright. It is a book that should be read slowly - maybe a chapter a week or so.
trinitarian life  Oct 16, 2005
Fantastic discussion of how the Lord's own prayer is accessible, relevant and worthy of our time and practice. Great for lay-readership. Could have had more discussion of the historical aspect of the prayer, but then again, Wright has done that in other places.
New Insights on an Old Topic  Aug 29, 2005
In spite of so many other commentaries on the Lord's Prayer, Wright manages to refresh our view of the greatest of prayers. In this small book, you get the benefits of the insights of a first-rate scholar without having to plow through his much longer works (although the longer works are indeed worth plowing through with determination). Wright emphasizes two themes that we tend to forget. The first theme is that the Lord's Prayer is about asking God to transform this earth and our earthly desires, not about pie in the sky. Secondly, the Pater Noster is about our "signing on" to the Kingdom, a Kingdom full of unpredictable transformations and exoduses. Wright reminds us that in the Our Father we put our entire selves, with all our earthly desires and concerns, in the hands of the Father. The book is more than worth the small expenditure of time it takes to read it.
A pleasing mix of scholarship and devotion  Dec 15, 2004
I am in the process of preparing a series of retreat talks on the Lord's Prayer, so I have read more than a dozen books on the topic in quick succession. Of all of these, I have decided to use Wright's book as the book for those on the retreat to read because it is a wonderful mix of scholarship and devotion, offering the intelligent reader a lot to chew on but speaking on a non-technical level. (This mix is harder to achieve than most people think, as I well know.) If you are going to read only one book on the Lord's Prayer, I suggest that you make it this one.
