Josephine Lombardi, one of North America's most highly respected theologians, has written a practical and inviting book to show how the Lord's Prayer can be a powerful spiritual guide for daily living. In this revised edition, Lombardi has drawn from her reflections on the last 12 years since this book was first published to provide new insight into the wisdom and depth of this prayer.
Drawing from her own life as a respected theologian, wife and young mother, On Earth as it is in Heaven is full of personal reflections, spiritual meditations and insightful anecdotes. Each section analyzes one line of the Lord's Prayer, followed by reflection questions and a short prayer. The result is a rich resource that nourishes the personal prayer life of adult Christians. This jewel of a book reveals God's relationship to us as being filled with intimacy and trust. Lombardi promotes the Lord's Prayer as a source of restoration and hope for families and society alike.
