The prayer at hand has been called many things: the Pater Noster, the Our Father, the Model Prayer, the Lord’s Prayer. As its name indicates, the Our Father has a particular meaning for all who call themselves children of God. In The Family Prayer: Understanding ‘Our Father,’ Dr. Scott Hahn presents a unique meditation that highlights the wealth of meaning in this most common Christian prayer. Relying on the Fathers and Doctors of the Church as well as Sacred Scripture, Dr. Hahn takes each of the seven petitions of the Our Father individually and draws out the implications of the prayer given to the family of God by Christ Himself. After The Family Prayer, you’ll never pray the Our Father in quite the same way again.
The Family Prayer is part of the St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology’s Promise and Fulfillment Lecture series, bringing Dr. Hahn to you.
