The Fullness of Life – Reflections on the Lord’s Prayer for today’s world book cover
‘A gem of a book’ is how Ann Widdecombe, former Prisons Minister in the UK government, describes a new book by Michael Smith, entitled The Fullness of Life – Reflections on the Lord’s Prayer for today’s world. ‘I wish we could all regain our understanding of temptations, evil and forgiveness. This short meditation is invaluable. I wish this book was in every school library,’ Widdecombe writes in the Foreword. The 96-page paperback is published by Initiatives of Change.

Former Labour MP Tony Colman writes: ‘These reflections deserve a wide readership. They offer wisdom in depth on the Prayer we all turn to in our times of both trouble and thanksgiving.’

Mike, who is an Elder in the United Reformed Church in Wimbledon, has written the book for church and house group study. He addresses each clause of the Prayer in short chapters, ending with a few questions which invite readers to reflect on their own lives.
 
‘In this well-crafted book Mike Smith reconnects a modern audience with its deep truths and challenges. Read it, understand it, and then pray the Prayer if you're brave enough to do so,’ writes Corporate lawyer James Featherby, Chair of the Church of England's Ethical Investment Advisory Group.

Bishop Michael Marshall, President of the Awareness Foundation, comments: 'Many books have been published about the Lord's Prayer, but few which are as fresh as this collection of Michael Smith's meditations on the text of Christ's exemplary prayer…. Throughout Michael shares something of his own spiritual journey and experiences through this interaction between the way we pray and the way we live.'

The book sells at £5 each plus p&p. there is a discount on orders of five copies or more. ISBN: 978-1-85239-045-7. Enquires.
