Our Father: A Biblical Meditation of the Lord’s Prayer
This original and imaginative treatment of the Our Father plumbs the scriptural depths of this prayer, so beloved of Christians. The Biblical meditation of each chapter is further enriched by introductory pages presenting the author's reflections and explanations, drawing on the treasures of the Church's patrimony: her liturgy, the Fathers of the Church, popes and saints. This is authentic spirituality, deeply rooted in the word of God: living and life-giving, nourishment for heart and soul, enlightenment for the mind. Taste and see!
“I am glad Sr Claire has written this book, and glad of its publication … Like the Seer in the book of Revelation, she has heeded the command, ‘Write what you see.’ We can be grateful for this … This is not a book to rush through. Its wine is for savouring, chapter by chapter, its bread for thoughtful digestion. Put simply, this is good, wholesome stuff. May it find many readers.” — From the Foreword by Bishop Hugh Gilbert of Aberdeen.
