About-

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.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Lord, Teach Us to Pray is biblically sound, spiritually rich, and intellectually stimulating. Boers 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."
--Henri Nouwen, from the Foreword
