The Lord's Prayer - Insight and Inspiration to Draw You Closer to Him by R. T. Kendall

  Using the Lord's Prayer as a guide, R. T. Kendall explains and expounds upon each petition to help us arrive at the answer to which the disciples sought when they asked our Savior, "Teach us to pray." (Luke 11:1)

  This is a wonderful work on prayer. So often the Lord's Prayer is repeated thoughtlessly or simply overlooked all together. Let this stop now! You can not walk away from this book without being amazed and inspired by what Jesus was demonstrating and teaching in this powerful prayer. In it is contained a depth of which I had never before (or yet) fully grasped. Oh how great and sufficient our God is!

  But don't limit the Lord's Prayer or this book simply to the issue of prayer. The thoughts contained in each will shed light on our entire lives, as they deal with our relationship with God and the world. Nothing is left unturned. This is a definite must read and I recommend it to all.

On a final note, the book ends with a challenging chapter on forgiveness. Our forgiveness of others. Ouch!

I'd like to thank Bethany House Publishers for sending me this free copy of The Lord's Prayer for review.
