Product Description

The psalms offer a harmony to life and a rhythm that keeps us peacefully in tune with the intense fervor of life. In The Spirituality of the Psalms, Carroll Stuhlmueller, C.P., looks at the structure of the psalms to explain how they can have bearing in our lives today. He describes how we can apply the psalms to our spiritual lives and integrate the psalms in the Church's prayer life and ministry. The Spirituality of the Psalms is the last work of Carroll Stuhlmueller, C.P., which was uncompleted upon his death in 1994. He had completed a first draft of all but two chapters, 12 and 13, which Timothy Lenchak, S.V.D., added from Stuhlmueller's commentary Psalms 1 and 2. The completed text was then edited, revised, and updated by Carol Dempsey, O.P., who did so with care so as not to lose Stuhlmueller's "voice" and "hand" in the text.

Editorial Reviews

A biblical scholar, Stuhmueller understands the psalms within the context of Jewish history, prayer, preaching and worship. . . . Questions for reflection and an Index of the Psalms are an asset in a book that is a boon to those who want to pray the psalms with mind and heart in unison.
Prairie Messenger

Writing with a rich awareness of the relationship between the psalms and other parts of the Bible and the extra-biblical background of some of the texts as well, Stuhlmueller has delivered a book that will be a welcome resource on the shelves of those who preach the psalms and those who pray them . . . a welcome tool for those who have been inspired by the psalms and are searching for a deeper insight into their meaning.
