LIVING THE LORD’S PRAYER: The Way of the Disciple


Contained in the Lord’s Prayer is a complete picture of our life with God. Covering topics ranging from our view of God to our most intimate human relationship to how we treat the world around us and the people in it, the Lord’s Prayer is a trustworthy guide for spiritual formation and a compact handbook for holiness. In Living the Lord’s Prayer, Father Albert Haase follows the lines of this greatest of all prayers, showing how the ideas have been understood by great people of faith in the past and revealing how they are useful for our spiritual formation today. With Haase’s counsel plus the wisdom of this great cloud of witnesses that includes Francis of Assisi, Martin Luther, Thérèse of Lisieux and others, you’ll discover how God can use this prayer to shape your very soul.

Including true stories and reflection questions for individual consideration or discussion with a spiritual director or small group, Living the Lord’s Prayer will teach you to live–rather than simply say–the Lord’s Prayer, and thereby to walk in the way of a true disciple.
