Even in today's post Christian society the Lord's Prayer remains widely known. Its beauty is that it can be understood by a child, but has tremendously profound lessons for those of us who investigate it more deeply. However, our tendency is to allow familiarity to breed complacency. We can repeat the Lord's Prayer verbatim, but do we ponder its message and follow its example?

... This book will be a great blessing to you and certainly help each of us better understand how to obey Christ's instruction "to pray like this." I recommend it heartily.

Equip for Ministry

If you would learn to pray, or strengthen your prayer life, who better to instruct you than Jesus. That is why Praying the Saviour's Way can be such a great help to you. The master model for prayer is clearly explained with helpful application.

Luder G. Whitlock, Executive Director of CNL Charitable Foundation, Orlando, Florida

Too often our prayers are concerned with ourselves and lack the reverence which is due. As Thomas walks through the 'Lord's prayer' with us, we discover fundamental truths about both God and ourselves. This book is a powerful reminder of who God is, who we are and what prayer is about.

Eleonore Van Haaften,

"Professor Thomas has given us an insightful and inspiring look at the Lord's Prayer. The church has always returned to Christ's instruction on prayer to form prayers that are pleasing to God. In our day when new forms of spirituality are appearing all around us, we need to return once again."

Richard Pratt, President, Third Millennium Ministries, Orlando, Florida

"Instructive, practical, readable, challenging. Each chapter will make you eager for the next course. Nourishing fare indeed!"

Sinclair B. Ferguson, Associate Preacher, St. Peter's Free Church, Dundee

"The exposition it contains can only thrill and inspire us afresh to make far more use of the extraordinary privilege of coming to God in prayer."

Mark Johnston, Minister, Bethel Presbyterian Church, Cardiff, Wales

Customer Reviews

There are a few good books available on the Lord's Prayer, but Derek Thomas's treatment is among the best. It reveals a profound spiritual and theological wisdom rarely exhibited among contemporay writers. The section on the will of God is a jewel.
