By John Dominic Crossan (Harper Collins Publishers: 2010, 212 pages)
Crossan provides a unique perspective on the Lord’s prayer. Every Christian ‘knows’ the prayer but few really know it like John Dominic Crossan. This is more than just a commentary on the Biblical text, it is a complete analysis of the message which Crossan contends is revolutionary and all about justice.
I didn’t completely agree with every point in this work but found it challenging and worthwhile for anyone who wants an advanced scholarly consideration and treatment of what has become know as the Lord’s prayer. *Top
