Abstract

Though it endures, the Lord’s Prayer is not a “classic”: neither the ideal expression of a mature civilization nor a statement adaptable in every generation. Subverting the culture in which humans feel most at home, Jesus’ prayer offers an unsettling settlement. Its jarring consolation punctures every form of nationalism, undermines human sovereignty, and offers a bridge to other religions, to all seeking peace in this world.
