'Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.'

Rudolf Steiner once called the Lord's Prayer the 'greatest initiation prayer', and he spoke about it many times, also referring to it as the central prayer of Christian experience.

This book is, however, the first time that all of Steiner's comments, accounts and perspectives have been brought together in one place, presenting the full scope and depth of his ideas. Along the way, Peter Selg reveals some surprising insights into the spiritual history and mission of Christianity.


'This book, which is a gem, has the potential to become a companion for every human being, who is interested in the central prayer of Christianity and wants to open heart, spirit and mind for it.'
