First Line Friday #63

I absolutely forgot about First Line Friday last week. Sorry about that.

This week, I am featuring a book I just finished by Jeff Lucas, Standing On My Knees.

Jeff Lucas is a native of Britain. I recently had the privilege of hearing him speak at a conference I attended. He preached powerful messages and I enjoyed the humor he used while making his points. After reading this book, I have a new and deeper understanding of the significance of The Lord's Prayer. Why did Jesus say the things he did in teaching his disciples how to pray? Jeff Lucas does a great job at explaining this to his readers. I enjoyed his writing style which is laced with humor. I especially enjoyed the story of his relationship with his dog. On a serious note, I appreciated Jeff's explanation of "...Who art in Heaven." I had never heard this before and it gave me a new understanding of how near God actually is. I definitely recommend this book.

Now it’s your turn. First Line Friday is something every reader can participate in. Pick up a book near you. Type the first line in the comments, along with the title of the book and the author.
