Author: Dwight Pryor
Product code: BT11
Prayer should be at the very heart of a disciple?s life. Studying the patterns and principles of Jewish prayer can help us as Christians to pray more effectively and earnestly. This is a spiritual endeavour, not merely an academic or historical exercise.The principles can help us to pray more like our Lord prayed and to better understand the prayer He taught His disciples - for Jesus lived very much within the context of the Jewish traditions of His day. Surely this alone is a good reason to study these things - to imitate Jesus.
About the Author
(1945-2011) Founder of the Center for Judaic-Christian Studies in Dayton, Ohio. He was also a founding board member of the Jerusalem School of Synoptic Research in Israel. While studying in the Land, he came to realise the critical importance of understanding Christianity's Hebraic origins and dimensions and worked with both Christian and Jewish scholars there researching the backgrounds to the life and teachings of Yeshua Mi Natzeret, (Jesus of Nazareth) the Jewish Messiah.
As one of the most widely acclaimed teachers on the subject, for over 25 years Dwight and his wife Keren travelled world wide with their teaching and preaching ministry, seeking to make available to the Church an ever-growing wealth of study materials.
Their main aim was to equip believers for a fruitful life of participation in the purposes of God by learning how to think biblically. With this in mind they created a way for disciples, serious about understanding the Bible and yearning to get back to the Jewish/Hebraic foundations of their faith, to benefit from the teaching ministry of Dwight on an ongoing basis.
