Quotes on the Lord’s Prayer….Our Father


  • We do not call God “Father” because we have had certain positive experiences with our biological fathers and therefore project those experiences upon God.  Rather, all human fathers are measured, judged, and fall short on the basis of our experience of God as Father.  God the Father stands as judgment against all human fatherhood.  — William Willimon and Stanley Hauerwas in Lord, Teach Us, p. 31


  • This God who is unveiled in Christ is the God our world needs today.   — Rufus Jones in  The World Within, p. 5


  • In a study group, I heard author John Killinger claim that “Jesus was God’s answer to the problem of a bad reputation.”  Killinger believes that reconciliation finally occurs when we let Jesus “show us the Father” and disproves forever the serpent’s distortion.    — John Claypool, in StorieJesus Still Tells,  p. 49


  • The more mature and knowing men [sic] became, they more they learned to know life, the more they realized how graceless, how fatherless, how terribly orphaned the world is.  –Helmut Thielicke in Our Heavenly Father, p. 20
