Lord, Teach Us to Pray


186 Pages


The Lord's Prayer has nurtured Christians throughout the ages. Yet today it is often
well known--but little understood
frequently repeated--but seldom contemplated
much loved as Jesus's model prayer--but attacked by some for naming God "Father."
Martin Luther said, "To this day I am still nursing myself on the Lord's Prayer like a child and am still eating and drinking of it like an old man without getting bored with it." The Lord's Prayer can still offer such nourishment.

Arthur Paul Boers’s book,Lord, Teac Us To Pray, is a very impres sive study. As we are reminded in the introduction, Jesus did not say, “Pray this exactly,” but “Pray like this.” A whole new way of understanding the Lord’s Prayer is opened to us. As Arthur Boers takes his readers through the different words of the prayer that Jesus gave to his disciples, he becomes a trustwor thy guide through the large landscape of Christian living. Speaking about action and contemplation, about struggle in family life and the agonies of our contemporary society, about personal concerns and global issues of justice and peace, he offers the Lord’s Prayer as a Godgiven gateway to enter and live in the world without belonging to it. Arthur Boers’s study shows the Our Father as a prayer that is as wide as it is deep: it embraces all humanity’s yearnings and touches the inner depths of the human heart. Lord, Teac Us to Pray is a biblically sound, spiritually rich, and intellectually stimulating book which will lead many to pray the Lord’s Prayer in a radically old and a radically new way.
Henri Nouwen 1991
