THE GREATEST PRAYER
Rediscovering the Revolutionary Message of the Lord's Prayer
By John Dominic CrossanEvery Sunday, the Lord's Prayer echoes in every Christian church around the world. An indisputable principle of Christian faith, it is the way Jesus taught his followers to pray, and distils the most essential beliefs required of every one of the world's 2.5 billion Christians.
In The Greatest Prayer our foremost Jesus scholar explores this foundational prayer line-by-line for the richest and fullest understanding yet of a prayer every Christian knows by heart.
Addressing issues such as God's will for us, our responsibilities to each other and to the earth, and the moral responsibilities that come with money, Crossan reveals the enduring meaning and universal significance of the only prayer Jesus ever taught.
