Beginning with an imagined Greco-Roman auditor of the Lord's Prayer, Brown demonstrates how a Greco-Roman's understanding of the prayer would have been different from that of a Hellenized Jew in Palestine. Brown takes the reader into discussions of early Greco-Roman Christians regarding prayer in general and the Lord's Prayer in particular. Focusing on cultic didache of Clement of Alexandria and Tertullian of Carthage, The Lord's Prayer through North African Eyes is a window into the turbulent and sometimes confusing world of second-century Christianity in Africa."--BOOK JACKET." ;
