Under the headline 'Facing up to the challenges set by the Lord's Prayer', The Catholic Times, UK, reviews the new book The fullness of life. 'The author, Michael Smith, is unafraid to look at the deep and even controversial aspects of the "Our Father", the prayer that Christ himself gave us,' writes Joanna Bogle. 'The result is a helpful book, with an uplifting and faith-filled message. The author tells some poignant and useful anecdotes--about forgiveness and how enriching and healing it can be, about honesty in prayer, about our responsibilities towards the poor and needy. The book's strength lies in its honesty.'
