About The Living Hour: The Lord’s Prayer for Daily Life
The Living Hour is a modern meditation on the Lord’s Prayer. It is written for progressive Christians, Unitarians, the SBNR (Spiritual But Not Religious), and people of all faiths. In teaching the Lord’s Prayer, the Living Hour takes you below the surface meaning of Jesus’s words and his larger teachings to discover fresh interpretations of the metaphors and parables contained in the Gospels.
The book’s SBNR commentary is richly supported by over 200 Gospel book citations and is seasoned with contemporary cultural, psychological, and literary references. The work is thus perfect for discussion groups and progressive Bible study classes. You can also read the Lord’s Prayer book online by clicking on the following chapters.

The New Century Gospels
All great religious manuscripts and scripture (be they Christian, Buddhist, Taoist, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, etc.) have transcendent and important things to teach us. The Gospel books of the New Testament are unique among such works in that they are so often talked about but so rarely read in their entirety.
The Living Hour: The Lord’s Prayer for Daily Life includes the New Century Gospels. This is a contemporary version of the canonical Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John) which uses the “Twentieth Century New Testament” as its primary resource. Subsequent edits were made after careful consideration of the King James’ Bible and the current forms of modern English usage. The resulting text brings the story and teachings of Jesus to life for all readers, regardless of their faith.
