I render these words, for reasons that will become apparent as we go along, as follows:<idle musing>
Our Father, the one in the heavens,
ensure that we “hallow” your name,
ensure that your reign “comes”
ensure that your will is done on earth just as it is done in heaven;
do indeed give us today our “daily” bread
and forgive us our sins
in the same manner in which we have forgiven
and keep us from subjecting you to “testing”
but rescue us from doing evil.—The Disciples’ Prayer, page 28
I have to admit that I was extremely skeptical of some of this when I started the book. But, 150 pages later (it's a short book), I began to agree with him.
I invite you to follow along and see if he convinces you...
