Ultimately, the Lord's Prayer reveals more about how to live than how to pray.

The simple words of the Lord's Prayer still speak to those desiring genuine intimacy with God. Living the Lord's Prayer points to Jesus' teaching on community, love for the broken and isolated, holiness in an age of profanity, dealing with the evil within, resisting temptations, and more. Join David Timms as he examines each familiar phrase, uncovering a profound framework for a meaningful Christian life.

"Jesus Christ used just 72 words to outline the key elements of communicating with God in what we know as the Lord's Prayer. Timms, a native Australian who teaches at Hope International University in California, uses many more words than that in this lucid and probing excavation of the prayer, which he calls 'the greatest Christian teaching of the centuries on spiritual formation.' In word-by-word and phrase-by-phrase exposition, he digs deep into meanings and layers that easily escape a quick read. The opening 'our' calls us to community, Timms says, while 'Father' speaks to fear. Timms also discusses God's closeness, our call to holiness, our wilfulness, the challenge of simplicity and the need for forgiveness. Readers will find remarkable lessons throughout this work, which reveals shining gemstones of truth usually left buried in the prayer. Even 'Amen' is mined, with Timms calling it 'the greatest word of faith that the early church could muster.' This is a well-polished study of the oft-quoted but seldom-realized formative prayer of the Christian faith."

Life changing and challenging
4 stars By Ann, May 15 2010
We have used this book in our mid week fellowship group and members who have been praying the prayer all their lives have been challenged to look at their praying and life styles afresh.  I warmly recommend it for personal reading or small group discussion.  It will change the way you pray this prayer as well as recharge your whole prayer life.
