      I'm sure you're already taking this for granted, but since it isn't
      explicitly stated, I'll mention it anywa But I do hope that there'll be
      discussion of the Didache's use of the LP as well. Also, I would like
      to see an "exegesis" of the prayer somewhere in there too, not just
      issues about the paryer, perhaps conflating chaps 2-3 and the new
      chapter 3 being exegetical? Although one could argue I suppose that the
      whole book you've outlined is an exegesis of the prayer.........

      Out of curiousity, how late are you planning to go for the "early
      church" chapter?
