Excerpt

This is the fifth volume in the McMaster New Testament Studies series, sponsored by McMaster Divinity College, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. the series is designed to address particular themes in the New Testament that are (or should be) of crucial concern to Christians today. the contributors are selected because of their proven expertise in the areas assigned and their known ability to write intelligibly for readers who are not necessarily academics. Each article included in these symposium volumes, therefore, will evidence first-class biblical scholarship, but will also be written in a manner capable of capturing the interest of intelligent lay people, theological students, and ministers. in purpose, the articles will be both scholarly and pastoral. in format, they will be styled to reflect the best of contemporary, constructive scholarship, but in a way that is able to be understood by and speaks to the needs of alert and intelligent people in the church today.

This fifth volume in the mnts series focuses on prayer in the New Testament. It is a topic that has been treated extensively in the commentaries, systematic theologies, and devotional writings of the Christian church. Nonetheless, we believe it deserves a better treatment than usually received in either the scholarly or the popular press. So we have prepared this fifth mnts volume with the hope that a more responsible exegetical treatment of prayer in the New Testament will prove to be of help to many earnest Christians who seek to think and live in a more Christian fashion, and thereby have a positive impact on the church at large.

Our heartfelt thanks are expressed to the faculty, administration, and . . .
