Publisher's Summary

Jesus died with a psalm on his lips. For millennia, humans have been shaped by the Psalms. And before the Nazis banned him from publishing, German theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer published this book on the Psalms.

What comfort is found in the Psalter? What praise, and what challenge? What threat? In Psalms: The Prayer Book of the Bible, discover the richness this book of Scripture held for Bonhoeffer, and learn to pray psalms along with Christ.

First published in 1940, this classic reveals how the Psalms are essential to the life of the believer and offers Bonhoeffer's reflections on psalms of thanksgiving, suffering, guilt, praise, and lament. Now with an introduction by Walter Brueggemann and excerpts from the Psalms, Bonhoeffer's timeless work offers contemporary audiences ancient wisdom and resources for the living of these days. Includes a biographical sketch of Bonhoeffer written by his friend and biographer Eberhard Bethge.

amazing book

There are so many things I enjoyed about this book. George W. Sarris has a wonderful, calming voice that made listening to it a pleasure. I have many books on the subject of the Psalms, and I have learned from each one. This one is one I will listen to many times, as it is rich in doctrine. It is very much worth the cost.

Disappointed

Not what I was looking for.
Very disappointed 😞 Never taught, or shared with you " how" to pray the psalms.
