"this is an excellent resource on how the Lord's Prayer is used in Eastern and Western liturgies, and about English versions and paraphrases, both historical and contemporary." INTERNATIONAL REVIEW OF BIBLICAL STUDIES. VOL 50:2003/2004.

"This is a highly scholarly work (...) giving a comprehensive account of texts, views, opinions and uses of the Lord's Prayer from the very earliest days of the church to the end of the last Millenium. (...)for those who want to get to grips with the 'central prayer of the Christian faith' in terms of its origins, development, uses and message, this is now the book to turn to." John Darch, ANVIL volume 21 no.4 2004.

"This is an outstanding book that draws on and distils a wide range of material that may benefit both those who pray and those who read." Andrew Gregory, Keble College, Oxford, THE EXPOSITORY TIMES.

"I fully recommend this book to libraries, both public and personal, as an important part of their liturgical studies section. Its wide-ranging survey of the historical roots of the Lord'sPrayer and its ample notes and bibliography provide essential tools for liturgical scholars." Peter Atkinsm Auckland, New Zealand, REVIEWS IN RELIGION AND THEOLOGY, February 2005.

"it will be for the foreseeable future an indispensable companion for anyone who would like to explore the answers to (...)the many other fascinating questions it raises." Jeremy Worthen, South East Institute for Theological Education, Theology November/December 2005
