Through looking in detail at the Lord's Prayer, Tom Wright offers a really fresh and helpful way of looking at Jesus.
With his vast knowledge of the historical background, the author clarifies many things for the ordinary reader which help to broaden our understanding of the world of Jesus' time. By this means we gain a fuller, richer view of the meaning of the prayer and of Jesus. The historical and the contemplative approaches are often viewed as being in opposition: Tom Wright's approach instead brings each to illuminate the other. Phrase by phrase he demonstrates how understanding the prayer in its original setting can be the starting point for a rekindling of Christian spirituality and the life of prayer.
