The Lord's Prayer, taught by Jesus Christ to his disciples, has been an enduring source of faith and inspiration. Heidi Holder gathers together all of God's creatures--the tiniest insect and the most delicate butterfly, the goldfinch and the salmon-crested cockatoo, the gentle deer and the powerful leopard--to illuminate the promise of the prayer and to celebrate the beauty of the world God created.
Ms. Holder's extraordinary paintings accompany the text of the Lord's Prayer as it appears in the 1928 edition of the Book of Common Prayer. Her detailed notes on the illustrations, included at the back, explain the traditional or personal significance of some of the plants and animals she has chosen to portray.

Heidi Holder has previously illustrated Aesop's Fables, Crows: An Old Rhyme, and Carmine the Crow. She is a self-taught artist who lives and works in New York City.From School Library Journal:
Grade 3 Up - An elegantly illustrated rendition of the prayer Jesus taught to his followers. Using the text from the 1928 Book of Common Prayer, the artist adorns each page with symbolic, carefully chosen creatures and plants, from butterflies, dogwood blossoms, and exotic birds to camels, a lamb, and a leopard. Each of the rich, luxurious spreads contains one line of graceful script and a softly hued illustration, all edged with decorative borders. The flora and fauna in each exquisite painting have personal or religious significance that is explained in an appended notes section. This inspiring picture book celebrates the beauty and power of nature as well as the comforting words of the Lord's Prayer, and is a more traditional interpretation than Tim Ladwig's more modern version (Eerdmans, 2004). - Linda L.
