Charles Link takes the unique approach that the Lord's Prayer is a further interpretation of Jesus' Sermon On The Mount, summarizing the major themes of his teachings and providing a means for "signing on" to their morally demanding and culture countering ethics.
Designed with two six-chapter sections, its frequent references to the Lord's Prayer make this book a useful companion to the Lord's Prayer sermon series, A New Hearing Of An Old Prayer, by Thomas C. Short (CSS Publishing Co. 1995). In the first half of the book Link explores the realm of God. In the second half he outlines our role in that realm. Readers will particularly enjoy the author's questions and group participation suggestions to stimulate their learning and growth. This book will give the Lord's Prayer new meaning.
Chapter titles include:
• Jesus As Teacher Of The Realm Of God
• Trusting Our Parent-God
• Forgiven Forgivers
• An "Amen" People
