This book sheds fresh insight on this ancient prayer. Its words are certainly among some of the most well known words of the Bible, and yet familiarity has its dangers. The phrases can roll off the tongue without any thought or sentiment from the heart. Our knowledge of the words can blunt us to its meaning and blind us to its wonder. This book has been written to help the reader to "really pray" with increased understanding and joy.
Timothy Cross's desire with this book is that the read, with the Spirit's help will be delivered from formalism and praying the model prayer in a merely perfunctory manner.
