11:42 AM This morning I’ve been sitting beside a warm fire in my library pouring over the final page proofs of the latest book in our Areopagus series, Bob Cornwall’s Ultimate Allegiance: The Subversive Nature of the Lord’s Prayer.
I have long felt that our usual method of reading the Disciples’ Prayer needed a corrective; and this book is it. The authors of our little series represent a larger tension in the academic world: Luther versus Erasmus, revolution versus reform, a brave new approach versus the patching up of an old garment. Cornwall’s book will delight and surprise you, I think. When I first read it I thought back to a Denkmal in Worms, Germany, and its famous plaque: “Hier stehe Ich, Ich kann nicht anders.” I hope many small group Bible studies will find the book interesting and profitable.
