 About the Book 

The Our Father is so much more than a simple, rather harmless prayer, suitable for saying Grace, ending meetings, or - due to the apparent absence of recognizable Christian theology - Interfaith conferences. This book does away with this innocuousMoreThe Our Father is so much more than a simple, rather harmless prayer, suitable for saying Grace, ending meetings, or - due to the apparent absence of recognizable Christian theology - Interfaith conferences. This book does away with this innocuous approach and examines this prayer as what it originally was: a succinct summary of the Lords teaching, more akin to a creed than a petition. It represents a radical break with the theology prevalent at Jesus time and proves thus another substantive piece of evidence why its author was accused of blasphemy and sentenced to die on the cross. Here is a book which removes the debris of centuries, digs deep to get to the Pearl and restores its glorious luster.
