Searching for the Kingdom Feb 19, 2005
"Christianity is...the stubborn search for the kingdom of God, which involves heroism and sacrifice, and above all, the exhilaration of a journey into the unknown, ending in a marvelous discovery." I adore crisp writing from authors who once were journalists...this one was for 45 years. The best thing is that Mr.Mathias' faith shines from every page, making this book a real gem.

In The Perfect Prayer: Search For The Kingdom Through The Lord's Prayer by Philip Mathias (a now retired journalist whose 45 year career had him writing on faith, politics and religion) approaches the search for the Kingdom of God examines the six specific petitions in the "Lord's Prayer as recorded in the Gospel of Luke (11:2-4) wherein Jesus provided his followers a template for their daily communications with God. These six notated request statements are: Father; Hallowed by the name; Give us this day our daily bread; And forgive us our sins as we forgive those who trespass against us; And lead us not into temptation. Additionally, Mathias examines in detail the role each of these six petitions plays in achieving the ultimate goal of the Lord's Prayer -- the coming of the kingdom of God. Examined as a whole, The Perfect Prayer reveals that this cornerstone prayer of Christianity is so much greater than the mere sum of its individual parts. Very highly recommended reading for all Christians regardless of their denominational affiliation.
