Thomas Watson was one of the many
non-conformist preachers in 17th century England. He was
barred from and then reinstated to the ministry several
times, but nevertheless continued to preach. Lord's
Prayer is the third volume of Watson's series explaining
the tenets of Christian faith - the Ten Commandments and
the Apostle's Creed are the subjects of the other two. He
gives a lengthy exposition of each "petition" in the
prayer, which is found in Matthew 6. Watson is heralded
as one of the most readable Puritan writers - his style is simpler and
less meandering than many of his contemporaries. Some reviewers suggest
this book as a preface to more difficult works on prayer such as those
by John Owen. It is a wonderful reference for believers who are looking
to improve their prayer lives. Readers will be amazed by the vast
meaning packed into these simple words, but also struck by the ease with
which it can be prayed. This prayer our Lord taught us is of great
importance and should be studied and treasured often.
