The Lord's Prayer: Book Review

About The Book:

Bestselling, Respected Author and Pastor Mines the Riches of the Lord's Prayer

No prayer is better known--or more misunderstood--than the prayer Jesus provided in his Sermon on the Mount. 

Turning a keen eye to this much-loved topic, Dr. R. T. Kendall unlocks the transforming truths of what we now call the Lord's Prayer. With wisdom and depth, he offers thoughtful exposition on the life-changing revelations contained in each line of this amazing prayer, including:

• interpreting and praying in the will of God
• the purpose of the Lord's Prayer
• when to pray the Lord's Prayer
• how unanswered prayer can be a sign of God's favor
• misusing the Lord's Prayer
• why pray at all?
• and more

Readers will come away not only with a model for prayer, but with a revolutionary way to pray effectively while drawing closer to the Father. 
About The Author:
R. T. Kendall, Ph.D., a protégé of Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, pastored the historic Westminster Chapel in London for 25 years. The author of numerous bestselling books, he conducts "Word, Spirit and Power" conferences throughout North America. His ministry was transformed by the power of the Holy Spirit in the 1990s after his wife was miraculously healed from a serious illness. He and Louise now live in Hendersonville, TN.
My Review:
In an easy to read fashion, Kendall takes the reader on a verse-by-verse journey through one of the most recognized pieces of Scripture, The Lord's Prayer. You will find thought-provoking ideas about this passage that will have you thinking, "why did I not see that before". It is a very easy to understand book, that I will refer back to for years to come. Kendall teaches the reader how to have a prayer life based on the model seen in The Lord's Prayer. With solid theological points, this book will appeal to all Christians looking to understand prayer on a deeper level. 
I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up.
BUY IT: You can purchase The Lord's Prayer by R.T. Kendall, online here, directly from Revell Books, a division of Baker Publishing Group. It is also available through your favorite local Christian bookseller.
