This title presents an entirely fresh approach to the Our Father, Jesus' own prayer, through the eyes of one of the greatest saints, Thomas Aquinas. Those readers, who in the past, have found the study of Aquinas especially daunting, will be grateful to the Dominican Paul Murray for the freshness and clarity he brings to his task. "Praying with Confidence: Aquinas on the Lord's Prayer" is both a stimulating scholarly study and an ideal introduction for the general reader. Never before have the most important reflections by Aquinas on the Lord's Prayer been drawn together and considered in a single book. Here, Aquinas comes alive not merely as a profound speculative theologian but also as an impressive master and guide of the spiritual and moral life. And he also comes across, on occasion, as a teacher capable of saying the unexpected, openly confessing, for example, '...it is hardly possible to say a single Our Father without our minds wandering off to other things'. The style of Aquinas is, for the most part, plain and expository, but evident on every page is the serene, unmistakable mark of wisdom, Aquinas' own, and that of the great tradition.
