Aramaic is a sparse language in which words have alternative meanings that are often quite different from the King James translations of Jesus's teachings people use today. The author is a religious scholar who studies Aramaic to learn how people two thousand years ago thought about God, love, humanity, and spiritual community. In Aramaic, the Lord's Prayer is fertile ground for the author's interpretation of what Jesus said about personal development, emotional integrity, and the meaning of life. His historical explanations, which are poetic and illuminating, gently challenge the notion of our being separated from God and offer a more communal remedy to our alienation and relentless ambitious-ness. An outstanding historical and spiritual lesson. T.W. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 04/ JAN 05]
