Description: 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: ""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 About the Contributor(s): Arthur Paul Boers teaches pastoral theology at Associated Mennonite Biblical Seminary.
