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.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"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
