Understanding "Our Father" - Biblical Reflections on the Lord's Prayer
By Scott Hahn
The prayer at hand has been called many things: the Pater Noster, the Our Father, the Model Prayer, the Lord’s Prayer. In Understanding “Our Father”: Biblical Reflections on the Lord’ s Prayer, Scott Hahn presents a unique meditation on this common prayer, leading readers to consider the wealth of meaning in its seeming simplicity.
Relying on the Fathers and Doctors of the Church as well as Sacred Scripture, Hahn reflects on each of the seven petitions of the Our Father individually and draws out the implications of the prayer given to us by Christ Himself.
