Our Father

Our Father, written by Sophie Piper, uses the text of The Lord’s Prayer, Psalms 23, as the basis for book. The book’s introduction gives further explanation: “It is here presented line by line alongside prayers and reflections that shine a light on the meaning.”

Each two-page spread starts with a line from this Psalms, and adds other Bible verses, some poems/prayers and some quotes. For instance, for the line “Hallowed be your name,” she uses a quote from Psalm 8:1, 3-4, a prayer from St. Patrick (who lived from 389-461), and a poem from Lois Rock.

The book is intended as a gift book.

The illustrations by Angelo Ruta are beautifully done.
