The Greatest PrayerJohn Irvine, via The Good Book Stall
The author sums up his book as “rediscovering the revolutionary message of the Lord’s Prayer.” As well as being the greatest Christian prayer, it is also the strongest and most powerful. He argues that the prayer is a radical manifesto and a hymn of hope for all humanity. He proves his argument point by point by examining in detail every word and phrase in the prayer. Ranging widely through the Old and New Testaments, he examines the historical contexts of each word, their particular meaning and how to interpret them as metaphors. It is full of interesting historical facts and references from Jesus’ own time right up to this century with its recent archaeological discoveries. In clear and accessible language he says much that will be new to the reader and much that is both startling and fascinating.
