A Layman Looks at the Lord's Prayer Review

Book Review: 

I am very familiar with this author's book "A Shepherd Looks At Psalm 23." Although this book has been out for several years, I am not familiar with it. When this new printing of it came up for review, I decided to review it, as I like reading about the Lord's Prayer.

Keller assigns a different chapter to each phrase in the prayer, coming in at 12 chapters. I like his writing style, and he brought out some thoughts I had never read or considered before. He doesn't belabor the points he makes, yet does a thorough job of getting them across. The book totals 157 pages, which shows he does manage to say a lot about this short little prayer.

I found the whole book interesting and helpful, but especially enjoyed and appreciated the chapter "Thy Will Be Done." Keller brought out some great points about God's will, and it was something I needed to read.

This was an interesting and fresh look at this prayer we have read and prayed over and over, and I definitely recommend it.

I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
