HarperCollins, 1990

Douglas-Klotz returns to the Aramaic language of Jesus as he delves into the authentic meaning of the Lord's Prayer, the Beatitudes, and other sayings.

Beginning with an explanation of the similarity amongst Semitic languages, the author goes on to explore the various meanings which can be drawn from the source of the original words, opening up to new understanding, not only of the words themselves, but the experience of the body in prayer. This book will change the way one understands the most important prayer of Christian faith.

"Reader beware; though this book is brief, it contains the seeds of a revolution." -Matthew Fox
