The Lord’s Prayer as an Apologetic

July 08, 2014

by William Edgar

The Forum of Christian Leaders and the European Leadership Forum host Dr. William Edgar for a workshop on the Lord’s prayer as a vision for the entire Christian life and apologetics. Dr. Edgar’s book A Transforming Vision: The Lord’s Prayer as a Lens for Life further develops this concept.

They introduce the session: “While many books and articles exist on the Lord’s Prayer, few if any look at it as a statement of apologetics, or a world-and-life view. This seminar purposes to look at the Lord’s Prayer as a transforming vision. Prayer itself is essential to Christian apologetics; the defense and commendation of the Christian faith. Each of the petitions can be understood as a point of apologetics, because they take a particular part of life and look for renovation in our individual and corporate lives as we face them. Each of them is counter-cultural, and calls for radical change through the presence of God clothed in the Gospel.”

Produced by the European Leadership Forum.
