About the Author

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.

Feeling most at home behind a pulpit, Will Willimon’s deepest calling is to be a preacher and truth-teller of Jesus Christ. He 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 lives in Durham, North Carolina.

Will Willimon has published many books, including his preaching subscription service on MinistryMatters.com, Pulpit Resource, and Fear of the Other: No Fear in Love, both published by Abingdon Press.

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.

I did a sermon series on the Lord's Prayer and although I took smaller pieces at a time than Willimon and Hauerwas, I was able to get lots of thought provoking ideas to help me in developing my sermons. It isn't too scholarly sounding to read but reflects great scholarship.

The book was OK, nothing exceptionally revealing or spiritually gripping. But it is part of the genre, and the authors are well known teachers, so it is a necessary read for those who will teach others to pray as the LORD taught us.

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.

Rev. Anne Corbert of United Church in Windsor Ontario did a study on the Lord's prayer. This was one of the books she suggested reading. I bought two at a very reasonable price. The sellers sent exactly what was promised and the book has some interesting points so far. I am pleased overall with my purchases

We are using this book in my Bible Study and loving it. The writer makes some statements that challenge our beliefs, generate spirited discussions and deepen our understanding.
