5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Future Classic 7 juillet 2008
Par Mr. Kite - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Along the lines of authors such as Dallas Willard, Henri Nouwen and Jerry Bridges, David Timms has written an inspirational, soon-to-be classic, on the most important Prayer in Scripture. Breaking down the phrases that Jesus used in to explain prayer, Timms suggests the truest and deepest sense of the prayer and the spiritual formation that comes with its correct use.

Exploring the Depth of Wisdom.
Living the Lord's Prayer by David Timms.
Bethany House Publishers, Grand Rapids, Michigan
Copyright ã 2008

Jesus Christ used just 72 words to outline the key elements of communicating with God in what we know as the Lord's Prayer. Timms, a native Australian who teaches at Hope International University in California, uses many more words than that in this lucid and probing excavation of the prayer, which he calls 'the greatest Christian teaching of the centuries on spiritual formation.' In word-by-word and phrase-by-phrase exposition, he digs deep into meanings and layers that easily escape a quick read. The opening "our" calls us to community, Timms says, while "Father" speaks to fear. Timms also discusses God's closeness, our call to holiness, our willfulness, the challenge of simplicity and the need for forgiveness. Readers will find remarkable lessons throughout this work, which reveals shining gemstones of truth usually left buried in the prayer. Even "Amen" is mined, with Timms calling it "the greatest word of faith that the early church could muster." This is a well-polished study of the oft-quoted but seldom-realized formative prayer of the Christian faith. (July) Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information. Source: Publisher's Weekly

Reviewed by A. C. Gray
Some years ago while pondering the Lord's Prayer, I purposed to take each sentence of the Lord's Prayer, examine its significance for my own life, and compile my thoughts into a book. David Timms had a better idea. His approach was to take each word of the prayer and mine its depths. Calling upon and quoting authorities from all walks of life, he has shown the reader how digesting the Prayer and making it one's own mantra can become a vehicle for being with Christ, becoming like Christ, and living for Christ. For this reason, the book will become a classic along with many of the books he cites. Having his splendid essay, there could be little more that I could write that might add to the narrative.
Timms shows how every inspired word of the Prayer is charged with meaning; of course it could be none else coming directly from the Savior of the world. For example, the pronouns "our" and "us" teach us to view the world with a lateral glance; the prayer should always be petitioned with a mindset that our Lord wants us to be mindful of the needs of all people everywhere when we come before Him.
Timms emphasizes the importance of the word daily in the Prayer's
injunction to "give us daily bread". The purpose, he explains, is to teach us dependence. "None of the Lord's prayer makes sense when we live self-sufficient and comfortable lives", he writes. The emphasis is on making the petition daily with the whole needy world in our thoughts. This petition should also teach us to have compassionate hearts. He tellingly quotes St. Basil the Great, the fourth century Bishop of Caesarea, who concluded that what we have is not ours alone:
"The bread that is spoiling in your house belongs to the hungry. The shoes that are mildewing under your bed belong to those who have none. The clothes stored away in your trunk belong to those who are naked. The money that depreciates in your treasury belongs to the poor."
Timms shares his scholarly understanding of the word Amen. He states that the New Testament writers who concluded their discourse with Amen were declaring a powerful and confident Yes to the Father. He explains that this inconspicuous Hebrew word carries enormous history, depth, and force and captures the assurance of the soul.
The important thesis of this book is to challenge the reader to live in the Yes. Writing that this theme might seem like the domain of the positive thinkers - the salesmen, visionaries, motivators, and enthusiasts, but that Amen in the Hebrew meaning runs much deeper. "It belongs to all of us. It calls each of us to live by faith...faith in the One who controls our lives and eternity. Timms reminds us that the apostle John, writing in exile on Patmos, gave Jesus the title Amen. Suddenly, he writes, "The Amen is a Person. This word becomes a title for Christ throughout eternity...it drives home once again that Christianity is not a moral code to live by but a Person to live with and for; not a philosophical system or a collection of positive ideas but a Lord who embodies it all. We are left to ponder the definitive benediction of this book on the final page:

"All the promises of God find their Yes in Christ. Everything good and true and beautiful that the Father has wanted to extend to us and to the world is caught up in Jesus. Christ fulfills every Yes that the Father has planned for us from eternity. Little wonder that the angel of the God would announce to the Laodicean church that Jesus is the Amen. The congregation that had drifted from Yes to Maybe, the believers who had abandoned God's Yes to embrace their own self-sufficiency, are invited to say Yes to Him again."

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Living The Lord's Prayer review. 15 octobre 2008

I have taken four weeks to read this book, and can honestly say that this is the best book that I have ever read on the subject of The Lord's Prayer-I read copiously! Dave Timms makes the prayer practical and livable, and brings super application to bear on the life of a Christian as we consider how God really wants us to live for Him. Five stars!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Desire For God 29 juillet 2008
Par Mike Spradlin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
From the moment I began to read David Timms' latest guide to living real life, I found myself desiring to be consumed with more of Him, and less of me, as a disciple of Jesus. In an often studied but rarely understood prayer, Christ Himself gave his followers a model for drawing near to the Father - with intimacy and awe - that can be shared in community with others.

Timms captures this essence of Jesus' teaching and gives you a depth you least expect. He captivates you and stimulates your heart and mind to reflect on God and your response to Him. I've found that people have a real longing for the truth about God, and an investment in a journey like this will not waste your time. Put down whatever self-help book you are reading and return to The One who is not interested in our religion, but our devotion and learn by Living the Lord's Prayer.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Diving Deep Into The Lord's Prayer 24 octobre 2010
Par Tim Ross - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
This book takes us deeper into the Lord's prayer and into the ministry and purpose of Jesus Christ. If you were to think that anyone could write an entire book on the Lord's prayer just on the surface it might not be obvious how it would be done. But as Dr. Timms unwinds the prayer, verse by verse, and word by word, he studies the original greek language, the context at the time of Jesus' time, and makes some truly eye-opening statements. He digs deep to enrich the soil of our Christian walk so that we may grow roots deeper in our knowledge of the Lord. We miss so much if we just read through the word of God without understanding the setting for what was going on and Dr. Timms provides all the background of the times. Then Dr. Timms takes those original thoughts and statements made 2000 years ago and shows us exactly how they apply today. This book opened up my understanding of the Lord's prayer and is an amazing journey. This should be required reading for anyone who professes to be a Christian and who serves the God of all creation who came down from heaven to save us from our sinful, broken world.

It is filled with solid insights for today's world that reference straight to what Jesus taught. Dr. Timms speaks about some issues of our times (our lack of community, our desire for self-worth, our desire for self-glorification, our fears, etc.), speaks of God's desires for us by quoting scripture (the essential source of any teaching), and then talks to how we can make it part of our life. One particularly riveting part is on page 88 where Timms speaks about our desire to keep up a facade so others won't see our "flaws and failures, since we dare not look hypocritical. We specialize in image management - our image - and toil endlessly to convince others that we are something other than what we are." This discussion cuts to the heart of so many of us today. We look to others for attention, for approval, and for validation. We want to look all together but we are sinners and have fallen short of God's standard. Timm's points out that our hypocrisy is a necessary one because we must always look to God's standard. This book is filled with discussion like this. It will draw you to Christ's love for you, it will bring your focus onto the Kingdom and off of worldly things, it will bring to light many of our inadaquate attempts to find peace and happiness, and it shows the one and true way to find them through love of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

This book is inspired work that you must read slowly, intentionally, and you must have your Bible ready to study. If you heard someone talking about this book, it you stumbled upon it by searching, if your friend told you about it, or if God pointed you to it some other way...buy it and read it. You will be deeply enriched by it.

I highly recommend this book to those seeking to know God and understand what His purpose is for our lives.
