This book was originally published under the title "The Ancient Aramaic Prayer of Jesus: The Lord's Prayer."
Early on in the text, the author explains the meaning of "Setting a trap for God" in terms of the real meaning of Prayer, which is "Setting your mind like a trap so that you may catch the the thoughts of God".
This little book explains the Lords Prayer (the "Our Father") in the context that it was originally given to us by Jesus. I guarantee to you, that if you read and absorb this book, you will never say this Prayer by rote again!

5.0 out of 5 stars Set the Trap Within! 30 Dec 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Dr. Errico's book is an excellent introduction to the value and validity of the Aramaic words and prayers of Jesus. Written from a open-minded Christian perspective, "Setting a Trap" (which refers to the Aramaic word for prayer which may mean "to set a trap") helps the reader understand the full meaning of the Master's most famous, oft-quoted prayer.
This book is an updated version of Dr. Errico's earlier "Ancient Aramaic Prayer of Jesus" (now out of print) which was published by the Church of Religious Science. This revised and expanded edition, published by the Unity Church (of which Dr. Errico is now a minister) is the best way for people to begin their Aramaic studies. Like all of Dr. Errico's books, it is far more meaningful and to-the-point than the current Aramaic books of Neil Douglas Klotz.
As a teacher myself of the Aramaic Gospel message for 7 years, I wholeheartedly recommend any of Rocco Errico's books, along with works by his mentor George Lamsa, as the most reliable texts on the true words and deeper wisdom of Jesus.

4.0 out of 5 stars Necessary reading, humbling for the soul. 16 Mar 2003
By A. J. Valasek - Published on Amazon.com
Every once in a while, I read a book that teaches me life lessons that are not easily forgotten. This is that kind of book. Even the most common prayer among Christian can be given a fresh light. This book is exciting because it allows one to understand the correct translation with proper context. I believe this author has achieved both. Starting by setting the context, this author then moves verse by verse through the "Lord's prayer," giving food by which one can meditate and quite possibly put oneself in the proper mindset to be able to listen properly and hopefully receive God's wisdom. Every verse is analyzed with the simple goal of setting a proper mindset, attitude, and reverence for God. Although the title of the book can be a bit misleading, alluding to a sense of selfishness, maybe purposefully, one quickly learns that this is not the case, as it should be. Buy it, read it, meditate and live by it.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is good stuff! 19 Mar 2005
By Beautiful Dreamer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am purchasing my fourth copy of this book. I have worn out or loaned or given copys away. "The information is accurate...its what they teach at the seminary..." A minister who borrowed the book told me. I asked why is it not taught from the pulpit. He replied, "People are'nt ready for it"

I challenge you to read the book and decide for yourself if you are ready for it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Setting a trap for God? 21 Sep 2001
By Mario Marroquin - Published on Amazon.com
Every person that says the Lord's Prayer should read this book. The reader comes to understand how truly spirtual the prayer really is. So much beauty has been lost in the way the prayer was translated that it seems bland after reading this book. I have introduced this book to my family and friends and every one is inspired by it. Read it. You will learn from it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Essence of prayer 15 Nov 2002
By S. Clement - Published on Amazon.com
Rocco Errico captures the essence of the experience of prayer. In a phrase by phrase analysis he teaches the elements of the Lord's Prayer as attunements of our consciousness. Worthwhile for any serious spiritual seeker.
