3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Tim Challies TOP 1000 REVIEWER on May 3, 2007
Format: Hardcover
This book is deja vu times two (or three). It took some doing, but here is how I understand the history of this book. In 2000, Crossway published When You Pray: Making the Lord's Prayer Your Own and then, in 2002 they published a hardcover abridgment of this book and titled it The Prayer of Our Lord. Both books subsequently fell out of print. Last year P&R Publishing Company republished When You Pray and now, in 2007, Crossway has reissued The Prayer of Our Lord, though this time in softcover. So this means the book has been published two times in each of two formats. Are you still with me?

Like the book's full version, this title is "a practical exposition of the Lord's Prayer from Scripture." "The more we pray," says Ryken, "the more deeply we are drawn into communion with God. And the more we study the Lord's Prayer, the better we are able to pray. So perhaps an exposition such as this one can help us draw closer to our heavenly Father."

The book begins with a chapter dealing with how we are to pray (shortened from three chapters in the original). Ten chapters follow, each of which discusses one of the phrases or petitions of the Prayer, beginning of course with "Our Father in Heaven and closing with "The Power and the Glory." Ryken shows how this prayer can be prayed as-is, but also how it ought to model our other prayers. It is easy to read and simple to digest and with short chapters of only six or seven pages it is well suited for use with personal devotions or quick reading. Unlike the original, it does not have an index or Scripture index at the end.

If you already own one of this book's several predecessors there is no compelling reason to purchase this one.
