Reviews - What do customers think about The Lord's Prayer?
Beautiful artwork Oct 5, 2007
The Lord's Prayer is an important part of everyday life. The story that goes along with this well-known prayer is realistic and heartwarming. It shows us how we can take this prayer and actually put it to use in our lives. Great book, my little one (3 yrs) loves it.
Gorgeous Feb 25, 2006
Beautifully illustrated, this rendition of the Lord's Prayer gives concrete and thoughtful modern interpretative images to a timeless prayer. The theme is one of loving, caring and giving as the prayer unfolds through a father and daughter's day of helping a lonely woman. I have given this book, and Ladwig's Psalm 23, as gifts many times. They are both absolutely breathtaking and help children and adults enter into the scripture passage from a fresh perspective.
Another Winner from Tim Ladwig Nov 7, 2000
As with his previous books, Tim Ladwig has again shown a unique ability to make religious ideas accessible to children through combining them with a story line from the modern world. This book functions like a visual parable which makes the meanings contained in "The Lord's Prayer" immediately accessible to children. Having purchased Mr. Ladwig's previous books for my young nephews, I know that they respond instinctively to the marvelous drawings and ask for these books to be read over and over again. "The Lord's Prayer" is highly recommended.
