    I can't give this book five stars because it didn't finish off being what it started out to be. When I first started the book I was under the impression that it was about prayer, more specifically how to pray using the Lord's Prayer as the supreme example of what effective prayer should be. However, not too far into the book it became apparent that this was not what the book was going to be about. Wiersbe does use the Lord's Prayer throughout the entire book breaking it down one stanza at a time. I can't give this book five stars because it didn't finish off being what it started out to be.

Wiersbe does use the Lord's Prayer throughout the entire book breaking it down one stanza at a time. Overall, the book is more about relationships, our relationship with God and His with us and our relationship with each other. There is quite a bit of scripture and theology in this book, but it is very readable for the layman. This is not a book directed at the highly educated theologian. Even though there are 196 pages in the book it is a relatively short read taking me only a few days to finish it. I could have finished it quicker but I took a few days off to read other things and do other things. It wasn't what I expected but it was a very good book. I can recommend it for people interested in the topic of prayer.

    It seems obvious after reading this book, but after saying the Lord's Prayer daily (usually more than once a day) for most of my life, I had never realized that three of the requests in the prayer focus on God and three focus on the needs of the person saying the prayer. The prayer begins with hallowing God's name--focusing on the glory of His name--and continues with the request for the coming of His Kingdom and the accomplishing of His will on earth. Then it moves into requests for the pray-er It seems obvious after reading this book, but after saying the Lord's Prayer daily (usually more than once a day) for most of my life, I had never realized that three of the requests in the prayer focus on God and three focus on the needs of the person saying the prayer. The prayer begins with hallowing God's name--focusing on the glory of His name--and continues with the request for the coming of His Kingdom and the accomplishing of His will on earth. Then it moves into requests for the pray-er: physical needs (daily bread), forgiveness of sin, and victory over trial and temptation. This book made me realize that I often fail to give God glory in prayer and jump right into my own needs. The Lord's Prayer provides a wonderful pattern for all our prayers.

    Those who have spent a lifetime in church have heard many sermon on the Lord's prayer. This book was one in which the reader is called on to do reflective thinking. Key thoughts were "Prayer is a miracle and the sooner you realize this fact, the sooner prayer ceases to be a dull routine or a religious burden." "To neglect prayer is to cheapen everything Jesus accomplished for us at Calvary and is doing for us now in glory." "To the maturing children of God, prayer is a moment-by-moment adventure Those who have spent a lifetime in church have heard many sermon on the Lord's prayer.

    Subjectively, I was disappointed overall with this book. Being that it is authored by Wiersbe, I guess I expected better. I felt like even though it was good content and very thorough with Scripture references, it seemed to be a lot of extra stuff. I expected a more succinct version than what is written. It was difficult to trudge through at times, but I'm still glad I read it for what I did learn from it.

    It's amazing how the "Lord's Prayer" can be dissected sentence by sentence to give such insightful examples of how we should pray. When the disciples asked Jesus "Lord, teach us to pray", His response seemed very unprepared and not thought out. He simply said, "Pray like this..." My oh my, how this book shows the wisdom and power of Jesus! Any bible student will be well pleased with Warren Wiersbe's frequent use of scripture to back up his thoughts.

    Full review at http://bookwi.se/on-earth-as-it-is-in... Short review: This is an ok, but traditional book on the Lord's Prayer. There is not much here that has not already been written. If you are looking for a good Lord's Prayer book then I would recommend Living Prayer by Dennis Fuqua (http://livingprayer.net). It is a much better book. I pick this up when it was free on kindle.

    As usual Warren Wiersbe has written an excellent book. Many great insghts on the lord's Prayer! Check out this quote, "When God is not permitted to rule, He often over-rules and is able to bring blessing out of disobedience and disappointment." If you are interested in learning more about "The Lord's Prayer" then this is the book for you!

    Theological and practical Imminently practical look at the Lord's Prayer without skimping on theology. WW's approach makes it easy to memorize the key ideas undergirding the prayer. Heartily recommend.

    Excellent. Wiersbe doesn't pull any punches, but he presents the truth of Scripture with a pastoral heart, yearning to help the reader follow Jesus deeper.

    Much great food for thought in this book. I kept my highlighter in my hand. Wiersbe breaks down the Lord's Prayer and shows how important it is to a Christian's prayer life.
