Hans-Martin  Barth - The Lord's Prayer


The prayer of Jesus – newly discovered in the context of world religions and secular thinking

It is not the confession of faith that all churches have in common, but something else: the Lord's Prayer. Is there even more to this prayer, a prayer that all Christians share? Is it perhaps an invitation for followers of all religions and even for the "religiously unmusical" to have trust in life?

Hans-Martin Barth wonders about the contexts the Lord's Prayer has been placed in during the 21st century. He asks about experience and difficulties with prayer. He points to ways of joining the prayer of Jesus in conversation with the great texts of other religions and even with the ideas of critics of religion. One thing becomes apparent: in a world that no longer knows the "Father in Heaven", the Lord's Prayer is a source of inner optimism that has by no means been exhausted.
