The Prayer that Jesus Taught Us

By: Michael H. Crosby
  • $24.00


The Lord’s Prayer, the prayer that Jesus taught us, is one of the most familiar and beloved of all prayers. But familiarity has dulled its radical edge. In this close reading, Crosby shows how the "Our Father" summarizes the themes in the Gospel of Matthew, especially those of social justice. If we recite this prayer faithfully, we are responding to Jesus’ call to reject the worship of idols to engage in right relationships with our neighbors, and commit ourselves to the project of the Kingdom of God -- that God’s will may truly be done "on earth as it is in heaven."

Michael H. Crosby (1940-2017), a Capuchin Franciscan, was a tireless advocate for corporate responsibility. He travelled around the world, preaching and speaking on contemporary biblical discipleship. His many books include Finding Francis, Following Christ; Do You Love Me? and The Spirituality of the Beatitudes.
