Our Father who art in heaven. . . . Two thousand years have elapsed since these words were first spoken from the Mount of the Beatitudes overlooking the Sea of Galilee. Since that time countless sermons and commentaries have echoed these words, as does this book - but with a difference. Never has the Lord's Prayer been likened to such an array of spiritual themes. The commandments, the Divine Liturgy, the virtues, the Gospels, and then the Apocalypse and the Psalms are all taken in turn and formed into 'verbal icons'. Intricately woven like the knots of a prayer-rope, this book 'tells' the full reach of Christian experience. This is an eminently practical book to be not so much quoted as lived, a modern quest for the heart of Scripture.

"In The Way to Our Heavenly Father, G. John Champoux has given us a great gift, a profound and wide-ranging meditation on the Lord's Prayer, illuminated by scriptural, liturgical, ascetical and theological texts, chosen and assembled with devotion and discernment, that constitutes in toto a serious guide to the life-long ascent toward God. It's hard to imagine anyone reading this book carefully -- or even dipping into it casually—without coming across a passage that will magnify understanding, inspire hope, and deepen faith. A splendid achievement!" -- Philip Zaleski, editor of The Best American Spiritual Writing series

Another key element of its ritual, the elaborate Seal of God, has been found in texts and amulets throughout Europe.

Interest in The Sworn Book of Honorius has grown in recent years, yet no modern translations have been attemptedunt...
