The Lord's Prayer is for many people a mere collection of words that has been repeated so often that is has lost its meaning. It is in danger of becoming a repetition devoid of genuine faith. Renowned theological scholar William Barclay delineates and explicates this ancient prayer, showing us the depth of each phrase. He considers both its historical background and its application to our world today.

The William Barclay Library is a collection of books addressing the great issues of the Christian faith. As one of the world's most widely read interpreters of the Bible and its meaning, William Barclay devoted his life to helping people become more faithful disciples of Jesus Christ.
