Item Description...
Overview
In this brief but substantive examination of the prayers Jesus prayed, Stephen Shoemaker offers helpful applications of Jesus' prayers as both a way to better understand Jesus and as a way to use his prayers as a model for our own prayer lives. The book addresses our twin hungers for spirituality and for a deeper grasp of who Jesus was. The author takes seriously the way Jesus prayed and how his prayers open a window to our own experience of God. Included are discussions of: the Lord's Prayer (Matt. 6:9-13), the Prayer of Thanksgiving amid Life's Reversals (Matt.11:25-26), the Gethsemane Prayer (Mark 14:36), the Prayers from the Cross (Luke 23:34; Matt. 27:46; Luke 23:46), and prayers from John's Gospel (11:41-42, 12:27, 17:11). The author stays close to the text of the prayers (sometimes including his own translations) but explores their meaning in our lives. He uses Abba rather than the English translation "Father" in order to bring the reader closer to Jesus as he spoke the words of each prayer. A study guide is included to assist leaders in using the book with small groups. "Jesus' prayers are a challenge and a scandal to the ways our culture wants to pray. His spirituality, found in his prayers, is a profound guide to the soul and a remedy to a culture in search of a soul." --H. Stephen Shoemaker

On the Money!  Mar 18, 2010
I rescued this little book from a junk pile on my Mom's driveway a few months ago. After perusing it, I decided it would make a great Bible study for my Sunday school class. Then My daughter-in-law came to visit, found my little jewel and fell in love with it herself. She took it home with her to NC, promising to send it back to me before I needed to begin to build my studies. Well, needless to say, I made a gift of it to her, but only after I new I could get my hands on another copy through this site (they have EVERYTHING!).

Now, I am no book reviewer, but I love the way the author uses "Abba" in all the prayers, explaining translation, meaning, etc. It really puts more emphasis on our method of prayer (communication) with the Lord. This enabled me to understand prayer can be a very, very intimate thing. It freed me to get right down on the lap of the Lord and speak to him like I would my own daddy. I love it!

We will not be covering it in only 4 weeks as the book suggests, our format is just different, but I am currently into a few weeks on the book and my Sunday school class loves it!

It's brief enough and concise enough to do the job of "Finding Jesus in His Prayers".
