What you pray . . . shapes what you believe . . . shapes how you live.
The Lords Prayer is a beautiful, subversive passage of words given to the church by Jesus. It forms our imaginations andgiven timetransforms us. And today, we are in desperate need of renewed imaginations. Christians are living in a wilderness of secularism. The historic Christian faith is seen as absurd at best and dangerously oppressive at worst. Followers of Jesus must begin to imagine life as a faithful minority who are ever seeking to subvert what is evil with good, what is hateful with love, what is corrosive with nurture.
In Liturgy in the Wilderness, Anglican priest D. J. Marotta shows how the Lords Prayer provides a framework in our secular age for understanding, believing, and living in light of Jesus Christ. When we pray the Lords Prayer, were planting seeds that can split concrete. Were dripping water that can wear away granite. Were shifting spiritual tectonic plates that lie deep beneath culture, society, and the depths of our own hearts. When we pray the Lords Prayer, our imaginations are stirred, moved, and transformed. Were taken apart and put back together. Were stripped of our idols, addictions, and false hopes. Were offered new words of trust and mission. And we begin to see the world differentlythe way Jesus saw it.
With this book, Marotta awakens our hearts to the beauty, sustaining power, and bounty of the Lords Prayer and shows us how to live faithfully in the wilderness.
