What are Christian thinkers of the present day saying about God? How shall we assess what they have to say about the being and acts of God? Why should it matter to members of a local congregation? In this unique sixth book in the Regent’s Park Study Guide series, Bradshaw sets out to answer these questions by bringing up recent developments in Christian theology against the test of prayer. He goes on to explain the petitions of the Lord’s Prayer and pushes readers to explore the God to whom they are addressed and the meaning of modern Christian thinking about God.
