SAKON NAKHON, THAILAND, July 31, 2011 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Living Hour has announced that its popular book The Lord's Prayer for Daily Life is now available for free online. Previously available in trade paperback and as an e-book, the Lord's Prayer book can now be read at LivingHour.org. All of its over 200 Gospel citations are conveniently integrated into the text. Therefore, discussion groups and individuals who are exploring the message of the Gospels can easily use the online text to further their investigations of the New Testament books Matthew, Mark, Luke, & John.
The Lord's Prayer for Daily Life has become a favorite book of many Progressive Christians and spiritual progressives since its launch in late 2008. The book takes a fresh and non-dogmatic approach to its meditation on the Lord's Prayer, challenging the reader's preconceptions about Christianity and Christ's teachings. While the book was initially marketed to Unitarian Christians and those sympathetic to the goals of Progressive Christianity, it has attracted many agnostic readers, as well as those of other faiths.
By going to the LivingHour.org website, readers can not only read The Lord's Prayer for Daily Life in its entirety, but also translations of the Lord's Prayer, including the KJV Lord's Prayer, as well as the Lord's Prayer in Aramaic (the language of Jesus). Living Hour has also adapted the message of its Lord's Prayer book into an article aimed toward parents who want to teach the Lord's Prayer to children.
The Lord's Prayer for Daily Life is split into 12 chapters, corresponding to separate lines of the Lord's Prayer. Readers can explore such issues as understanding God's identity, kingdom, and will, as well as how to release oneself from attachments to pride and ego. Written from a well-researched philosophical, historical, and psychological perspective, the Lord's Prayer book peels back the many layers of meaning beneath Jesus's prayer. Yet, at the same time, it leaves ample room for readers to develop their own interpretation of the Lord's Prayer within the context of their own experience.
LivingHour.org is an independent publisher, non-denominational ministry, and affiliate of the Progressive Christian Alliance (PCA).
