Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Jesus Christ used just 72 words to outline the key elements of communicating with God in what we know as the Lord's Prayer. Timms, a native Australian who teaches at Hope International University in California, uses many more words than that in this lucid and probing excavation of the prayer, which he calls "the greatest Christian teaching of the centuries on spiritual formation." In word-by-word and phrase-by-phrase exposition, he digs deep into meanings and layers that easily escape a quick read. The opening "our" calls us to community, Timms says, while "Father" speaks to fear. Timms also discusses God's closeness, our call to holiness, our willfulness, the challenge of simplicity and the need for forgiveness. Readers will find remarkable lessons throughout this work, which reveals shining gemstones of truth usually left buried in the prayer. Even "Amen" is mined, with Timms calling it "the greatest word of faith that the early church could muster." This is a well-polished study of the oft-quoted but seldom-realized formative prayer of the Christian faith. (July)

David Timms takes the Lord's Prayer and divides it up phrase by phrase. This devotional-style book takes a prayer that is often recited without thought and provides depth for even the most veteran Christian. If you are looking for an easy to read, devotional-style book I strongly recommend Living the Lord's Prayer. Timms covers topic likes love for the broken, holiness in an age of profanity, dealing with evil, learning dependency and appreciating simplicity. This book lays the foundation for leading a meaningful Christian life.

    Well worth reading, It is very insightful.

    This was and is a book that reveals the authors feelings as he wrote giving a different slant for some one to consider. As a minister, I understand his feelings, I have read several different stories on the subject, and I enjoyed it very much.
