All of us have heard the Lord’s Prayer being recited at home and in our churches or even in our schools. Some of us were even taught to memorize it as children but not all of us really understand the wealth of all that lies in this beautiful prayer.
Rick Warren’s book The Lord’s Prayer seeks to help a child as young as 4 years in age learn what each line of the prayer means, in simple words.
The Lord’s Prayer pulses with new life through the exquisite illustrations of award-winning artist Richard Jesse Watson, and simple, yet insightful commentary by bestselling author Rick Warren.
Watson’s use of vibrant color and detailed imagery beautifully captures the essence of Jesus’ words to his disciples, and Warren’s thoughtful words help make the King James Version of this prayer come alive for readers young and old.
E.B. Mommy’s Report:
I still remember the moment I received the revelation of what the Lord’s Prayer meant in essence. I was still in college and was taking an early morning walk with my Guardian (and Spiritual Father) when he explained each sentence of the Prayer in a way I’ve never heard it being explained before. I still remember every bit of that “morning teaching” and have been so blessed by what I learned. It’s ironic that I went through my entire childhood, Sunday School and church life till then just rambling out the words without understanding what it all really meant.
I thank God for men like Rick Warren who have a heart not just for things of God but a heart to share what God has put into their hearts in a simple manner for little children to absorb easily. Children are such avid learners. I could see Bunny girl drinking up every word that was being read to her by Hubby. I especially liked the way the book rolls out with the Lord’s Prayer, sentence by sentence on each page (with regal and bold illustrations, I must add) and then ends with a brief explanation on what each line means.
I would recommend this 40 paged, hardbound book as a ‘family must’ in your child’s library.
(Yes, this is one of those “investment” books.)
