I want to announce the forthcoming publication of my book on the Lord's Prayer. It is entitled Ultimate Allegiance: The Subversive Nature of the Lord's Prayer. The book is part of a series of books being published by Energion Publications that caries the title Areopagus: Critical Christian Issues and is edited by Allan Bevere and David Allan Black.
To give you a sense of the purpose of the book, here is the lead paragraph from the publisher's announcement:
"Prayer changes things." It's a common saying, and too often Christian discussion of prayer deals only with how we can change other things and other people through prayer. But what if prayer is much more that we imagine? What if it is also the means of correcting our relationship to the Creator and at the same time of changing our relationships with one another? Perhaps prayer can ultimately help transform our theology, what we believe about God, into character and action.
The book will be available in November, but you can pre-order now -- along with my bible study guide on the Book of Ephesians. Click here to find out more the book and about ordering copies. Although there are not study questions, it can easily be adapted for such a purpose.
