Dietrich Bonhoeffer presents the Psalms as the prayer of the Church of which Jesus Christ is Head, having their place alongside the ‘Our Father’, the prayer which Jesus taught. Bonhoeffer considers who it is who prays in the Psalms, as well as various themes to be found within them, such as creation and the history of salvation, life and suffering. The Psalms provide words with which we can address God and in which we can hear God speaking to us.

By examining the structure, vocabulary, and themes of the psalms, he engages each example as a stunning prayer for the twenty-first century. This careful revision of the 1993 edition relies on the New American Bible, Revised edition, and provides solid biblical scholarship to support the use of the Psalms in study and prayer.

Written centuries before Christ, the Psalms of the Hebrew Bible have been prayed by Christians since the founding of the Church. The early church fathers expounded the psalms in the light of the mystery of Christ, his death and resurrection, and his saving redemption. In this book, a Benedictine monk examines the Christian praying of the Psalms, taking into account modern and contemporary research on the Psalms. Working from the Hebrew text, Fr. Laurence Kriegshauser offers a verse-by-verse commentary on each of the one hundred and fifty psalms, highlighting poetic features such as imagery, rhythm, structure, and vocabulary, as well as theological and spiritual dimensions and the relation of psalms to each other in the smaller collections that make up the whole. The book attempts to integrate modern scholarship on the Psalms with the act of prayer and help Christians pray the psalms with greater understanding of their Christological meaning. The book contains an introduction, a glossary of terms, an index of topics, a table of English renderings of selected Hebrew words, and an index of biblical citations. Praying the Psalms in Christ will be welcomed by students of theology and liturgy, by priests, religious, and laypeople who pray the Liturgy of the Hours, and by all Christians who seek to pray the Psalms with greater profit and fervor. “It is no easy task to combine devotion with scholarship. From the introduction onwards this book breathes a prayerfulness that lifts the heart to God. With contemporary linguistic, literary, and theological scholarship, it joins the rich tradition of the Church expressed over the centuries in the writings of the Fathers. Each psalm is given a striking image as a sort of 'logo' and then discussed for itself. A special feature of the book is the appreciation that the prayer of the psalms in Christ is interwoven, threads of one bringing richness to another.” —Dom Henry Wansbrough, Master Emeritus of St. Benet's Hall, Oxford “In Praying the Psalms in Christ, Fr. Kriegshauser has given us a form of reading the psalms that runs very close in intention to that ancient practice of lectio divina where the text of the bible is read prayerfully as a form of contemplative prayer. His prayerful study is made all the more rich by the abundant cross references to other places in the bible, both Old and New Testaments, that add richness to the text. The result is an informative and spiritually nourishing companion to reading the psalms.” —Lawrence S. Cunningham, University of Notre Dame "Clear, accessible, and rooted in the tradition, Praying the Psalms in Christ guides us into the ancient prayers of Israel and the Church. The result is a fresh contribution to the great Christian tradition of spiritual commentary.” —Russell R. Reno, Creighton University
