Rich devotional reflections on the Lord's Prayer from an esteemed biblical scholar

In The Lord and His Prayer, a series of pastoral reflections, N. T. Wright explores how the Lord's Prayer sums up Jesus' own agenda within his first- century setting.

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. He demonstrates how grasping the Lord's Prayer in its original setting can be the starting point for a fresh understanding of Christian spirituality and the life of prayer. This deeply devotional book will stimulate and refresh the heart and mind of any reader.
— Booklist
"Wright parses [the Lord's Prayer] in six parts to demonstrate that it contains the essence of Christian teaching. . . . Absorbing and inspiring."
— Christianity Today
"Wright combines a sharp homiletical style with his rich background as a New Testament scholar. . . . The Lord and His Prayer is a helpful book for the devotional life of beginning prayers as well as for more mature Christians."
— Christian Library Journal
"Fresh insight into the multiple meanings of the Lord's Prayer. . . . Worth reading slowly and pondering."
— Theological Book Review
"This easily accessible series of reflections focuses sharply on that prayer which is at the heart of discipleship, relating it to the ministry of Jesus. Study groups and personal reflection will both be enriched by this work."
