‘Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.’
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.
The Lord’s Prayer has always been a special part of my life. I remember being very young when I memorized it. Having a book like this to break it down into each phrase and to be able to really reflect on what the words mean is so powerful. I am delighted to be able to share a book like this with my daughter. I highly recommend it!
