The Psalms: Prayer Book of the Bible
Author: Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Translator: Sister Isabel SLG
Dietrich Bonhoeffer (1906-45), a German Lutheran pastor and theologian, was a participant in the German Resistance movement against National Socialism. His involvement in plans by members of the German Military Intelligence Office to assassinate Adolf Hitler led to his arrest in April 1943 and execution, just weeks before the end of the Second World War, in April 1945.
Sister Isabel SLG entered the Community of the Sisters of the Love of God in 1956 and was Editor of SLG Press 1997-2006.

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.
