About the Author

Feeling most at home behind a pulpit, William H. Willimon’s deepest calling is to be a preacher and truth-teller of Jesus Christ. Willimon is Professor of the Practice of Christian Ministry at Duke University Divinity School and retired Bishop of the North Alabama Conference of The United Methodist Church, after serving for 20 years as faculty member and Dean of the Chapel at Duke University. He continues to give lectures and teach at universities around the world. Willimon earned a doctoral degree from Emory University and has been honored with 13 additional doctorates. He lives in Birmingham, Alabama.

A study by the Pulpit and Pew Research Center found that Willimon is one of the most widely read authors among mainline Protestant pastors. An international survey conducted by Baylor University named him one of the "Twelve Most Effective Preachers" in the English-speaking world. With over a million copies of more than 60 books sold, his popularity is undeniable.

Stanley Hauerwas is the Gilbert T. Rowe Professor Emeritus of Divinity and Law at the Divinity School at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina. He has written a voluminous number of articles, authored and edited many books, and has been the subject of other theologians' writing and interest. He has been a board member of the Society of Christian Ethics, Associate Editor of a number of Christian journals and periodicals, and a frequent lecturer at campuses across the country.

15 of 16 people found the following review helpful By Matthew T. Phillips on December 25, 2000
Format: Paperback
Using the Lord's Prayer as a starting point, Hauerwas and Willimon guide readers through major areas of Christian Ethics and thought in their trademark style. Readers familiar with the work of Hauerwas and Willimon will enjoy seeing their individual styles shine through occasionally, and the book reads like one of Willimon's sermons. It is important to understand that this is not a discussion of the Lord's Prayer for experienced Christians, but it can be good for people who have claimed but perhaps not actively thought about their faith.

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Michael R. Guthrie on January 9, 2007
Format: Paperback
This is a really fine overview of the Lord's Prayer. It takes a prayer most of us have memorized and explains in detail what each verse is trying to teach us. It encouraged me while providing practical guidance on how to implement what I learned into my life.

Many recite the Lord's Prayer simply by rote without digging deeper into the meaning of each phrase.
This book, Lord Teach Us: The Lord's Prayer , examines each section of this familiar prayer told by Jesus to his disciples in response to their desire to have Him teach them to pray. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to discover what Jesus was talking about. A long time Christian, a new Christian or a non-Christian will all find new meaning of those familiar words frequently recited and known as "The Lord's Prayer." Personally, I believe it is a book to be read more than once.
