Review by bookherd
Douglas-Klotz examines the words of Jesus in their original language of Aramaic, drawing out the many beautiful layers and facets of meaning in each line of the Lord's Prayer, Beatitudes, and other well-loved verses. Additional "body prayers" suggest ways to immerse oneself further into this deep wisdom. After decades of Bible study, the well-worn words of the Greek-to-English scripture translations had become like a locked door to me. This book drew that door back like a curtain... and what was behind it was so much bigger and truer than anything I'd encountered before that my heart was set aflame.
