My book on the Lord's Prayer, Ultimate Allegiance: The Subversive Nature of the Lord's Prayer (Areopagus Critical Christian Issues) , (Energion, 2010), is now available on Kindle for the low price of $2.99. If you are one who prays the Lord's Prayer or wonder why it might be worth praying this prayer of Jesus, I think this book should prove helpful.
Here is what some of the reviewers have to say about the book:
Keith Watkins, Professor Emeritus at Christian Theological Seminary writes:
Because the book grows out of a series of sermons preached in Cornwall’s church, the ideas are expressed in language that is readily understandable by readers without technical theological training. Yet Cornwall is well aware of the large body of scholarly writings about this brief biblical text. The point of view that he expresses is consonant with the work of scholars with long-established reputations such as John Dominic Crossan and Walter Brueggemann.

Chris Smith writes at the Englewood Review of Books
We review a lot of books here at the Englewood Review, and our primary selection criteria is books that can be read and discussed in churches, and that will be beneficial in helping churches understand and embody the way of Christ in their particular locations. Bob Cornwall’s Ultimate Allegiance is precisely this sort of book, and in many ways, it is better than many books we review because it hovers close to the biblical texts, terrain in which churches are typically comfortable into launching conversations. I hope and pray that churches will reflect together on Bob’s superb treatment of the Lord’s Prayer and that in so doing, they will find themselves foisted into a whole new world of questions and conversations about what it means – in a day-to-day, hour-by-hour sense – to follow together in the subversive way of Jesus.
