Kevin DeYoung, The Lord’s Prayer: Learning from Jesus on What, Why, and How to Pray (Wheaton: Crossway Books), 114 pp.
The Lord’s Prayer: Learning from Jesus on What, Why, and How to Pray by Kevin DeYoung is a deep and thought-provoking book that probes the inner depths of the most-well known prayer in the Bible. In typical “DeYoung fashion,” the book is simple to understand but contains weighty theological principles that cause readers to delve headlong into the biblical text.
Dr. DeYoung is quick to dispel some of the popular myths about prayer and turn the attention of readers to the true intention of Jesus. As the subtitle indicates, the book discusses the what, why, and how of prayer. New Christians and longtime Christians will both be encouraged and challenged by this excellent book.
DeYoung is a lucid writer who has a gift for making difficult concepts easy to understand. His most recent book is no exception. I recommend it highly!
