Simple, Yet Deep

In their book, MAY IT BE SO, Justin McRoberts and Scott Erickson have written a powerful, easy to read, yet, take it slow book about the Lord's Prayer.  It's a simple book, following the progression of the Lord's Prayer, but there are so many stopping points that this becomes a deeply introspective book.

I've had to stop on many occasions just to slow myself down and think and feel what the Lord is calling for me to do and how to act in my life.

After phrase of the Lord's Prayer, there a few pages of thoughts and notes, then comes the good stuff . . . as there are simple pictures and simple comments, such as - -

  • May I more clearly see my filters, blinds spots and biases, so that I might recognize goodness, truth and beauty beyond them.
  • May those I love know it unquestioningly.
  • May I come to see those living around me as neighbors, and may the word neighbor come to mean "beloved."
Many of these made me stop and pause and reflect on their words.  This is powerful, simple, yet very thought provoking book.  Which I highly recommend.

I received this book from Waterbrook Press in exchange for an open and honest review.
