 Our Description


This excellent work is a welcome addition to the many commentaries on the Our Father that have been written since the time of the Fathers of the Church. It is an excellent example of the lectio divina promoted by St. Benedict, and of the so-called "spiral contemplation" in the tradition of the pseudo-Dionysius and St. Thomas Aquinas (Summa Theologiae, II-II, 180, 6).

Fr. Hinnebusch reveals undreamed-of treasures that are contained in the Lord's prayer, thus demonstrating the truth of Tertullian's statement that the Our Father is "truly a summary of the whole Gospel." This book should be read slowly, with frequent pauses for meditation. It can be read again and again, and each time the reader will be able to "taste and see how good the Lord is" (Ps 34:9).
-Jordan Aumann, O.P., S.T.D., author of: Spiritual Theology; Christian Spirituality in the Catholic Tradition; The Unquiet Heart; On the Front Lines.

Fr. Hinnebusch has carefully crafted this in-depth look at Christianity's central prayer. Skillfully probing both Hebrew and Christian Scriptures, the author approaches the Our Father as Jesus' elaboration of his central mission, to reveal the healing and forgiving love of God as Father, and the glorification of his name.

This Dominican author and retreat master brings his years of experience to this work, approaching both the Matthean and Lucan texts from many perspectives as he examines the various petitions of the Lord's Prayer, carefully developing its many themes.
-Steve Landregan, editor, The Texas Catholic

Only a scholar who has thoroughly immersed himself in the Scriptures over a period of many years could have written such a book. Its approach is not so much from the historical-critical point of view, although it has a basis in sound Scriptural scholarship, but more in the monastic tradition of lectio divina. I believe it will help modern readers find a contemplative approach to prayer.
-Dr. William R. Farmer, professor, University of Dallashas written 17 books and over 100 magazine articles dealing with the Scriptures and Christian spirituality, including Mother of Jesus Present with Us (Prow) and Come and You Will See: St. John's Course in Contemplation (Alba House). He is a member of the Dominican Community at St. Albert the Great Priory on the campus of the University of Dallas, and is engaged in writing, spiritual direction and ministry to the students and faculty of the university. In 1994 he was awarded the S.T.M. (Master of Sacred Theology), the highest academic award in the Dominican Order, in recognition of his long career as a teacher and writer on Scripture and theology.
