Yours Is The Kingdom
Full Product Description
The Lord's Prayer has undoubtedly been the most widely used Christian prayer, but whether it has provided a model for other prayers is more debatable. If that is not what it is meant to be, then what is its purpose? Surprisingly, there has been very little serious reflection about this.
Gerald Bray believes that a new approach to the Lord's Prayer is required if it is to regain the place in our worship which its inherent merit and the universal tradition of the church suggest that it ought to have. In his lively exploration of the Prayer, he shows how it touches on many vitally important areas of Christian theology and conduct. His hope is that we may rediscover what a treasure we have in these words of Jesus, which are on the lips and in the hearts of all Christians.
Yours Is The Kingdom by Gerald Bray was published by Intervarsity Press in September 2007 and is our 7643rd best seller. The ISBN for Yours Is The Kingdom is 9781844742097.

Yours is the KingdomMelanie Carroll, via The Good Book Stall
This is an excellent book looking at the whole concept of The Lord's Prayer from a position of Systematic Theology and with the idea at its heart being that in point of fact this teaching was not about "this is how you must pray" but rather was a basic attempt at systematic theology. That is to say that this prayer was an encapsulated teaching of the new theology that Christ was bringing. The book works through this premise by analysing each line as a part of the whole theology idea as opposed to the way to pray treatise so commonly used. This makes for a refreshing look at the prayer. Certainly well worth reading as it is such a good view of the whole concept of The Lord's Prayer.
