The Lord's Prayer

R.T. Kendall wrote The Lord's Prayer, Insight and Inspiration to Draw You Closer to Him. He discusses who should pray the Lord's Prayer and when. He then, in a sense, dissects the prayer, analyzing each line. Throughout, he uses other Scriptures to support his claims. He draws from his personal life and anecdotes from the lives of others as well. He gets right down to the root meaning of words, in the original language. He presents several challenges to his readers regarding their personal lives and beliefs.

When I received this book, I admit, I was a bit reluctant. I had received three books on the Lord's Prayer around the same time and this one ended up on the bottom of the stack. It was a case of saving the best for last. Kendall's writing style is very approachable. He could have been sitting across from me having a chat. He is very easy to understand. He gets his points across without being repetitive. He concisely answers the challenges that his readers may have on issues such as the existence of evil. He encourages us to strive for daily dependence on God and to not take ourselves too seriously. I found it interesting that he wrote this book for believers and non believers. I think both audiences would benefit. This book is a keeper and is something I will read again.
