The author explains one of his secrets behind the powerful witness of his own life--that he had learned to pray the Psalms and from them drew on the power of God in his years of imprisonment--in a new edition that includes a brief biographical sketch by a friend and biographer of the author, which helps us understand the man who used the Psalms as his prayer book. Original.
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.
Eine volkstümliche, gut verständliche Bibel, wie es um die vorige Jahrhundertwende die Luther Bibel 1912 war. Vom Urtext her reicht sie, wo es nötig ist, an die Genauigkeit der Elberfelder Bibel und verliert trotzdem nicht ihre seelsorgerliche Sprache. Die Bibel wird sich - je nach Ausgabe - sowohl als missionarische Bibel, als auch als Studienbibel hervorragend eignen. Zahlreiche Erklärungen biblischer Wörter in Fußnoten sowie ein ausführlicher Anhang mit Sach- und Worterklärungen, Übersichtstabellen und Karten bieten Hilfen für den Bibelleser.

The psalms challenge and sustain us in a number of ways, and in times of new challenges to the very fabric of the church, to its faith, and its values, we need to re-examine these ancient prayers and songs. This book explores the place and function of the psalms in Christian prayer, preaching, and worship. Examining the dual nature of the psalms as both words to God and word from God, the author brings together the historical experience of the church, biblical studies and theological reflection to focus on the application of the psalms in contemporary Christian life. A number of individual psalms are explored in terms of what they have to say about prayer or what theological issues they raise for contemporary life. This book encourages a reclamation of the psalms in the private and public prayers of the church and in the preaching of the word.
