9780814625996: The Spirituality of the Psalms

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, CP, 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 Stuhlmueller 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, SVD, added from Stuhlmueller's commentary Psalms 1 and 2. The completed text was then edited, revised, and updated by Carol Dempsey, OP, who did so with care so as not to lose Stuhlmueller's voice" and "hand" in the text.

Chapters are "Chapter One: The Psalms within the Bible and Christian Community," "Chapter Two: Methods for Studying and Praying the Psalms," "Chapter Three: Hymns of Praise," "Chapter Four: Hymns of Praise," "Chapter Five: Celebrating the Lord as King and Creator," "Chapter Six: The Royal Dynasty of David," "Chapter Seven: Community Laments," "Chapter Eight: Individual Laments," "Chapter Nine: Psalms for Sickness and Dying," "Chapter Ten: Cursing and Reconciliation," "Chapter Eleven: Psalms for Reconciliation," "Chapter Twelve: Wisdom Psalms," "Chapter Thirteen: Thanksgiving Psalms," and "Questions for Reflection."

Carroll Stuhlmueller, CP, was professor of Old Testament at the Catholic Theological Union in Chicago, a widely published author on biblical scholarship, and a mentor to a generation of biblical scholars. His association with The Liturgical Press included being editor of The Bible Today, the author of Amos, Hosea, Micah, Nahum, Zephaniah, Habbakkuk of The Collegeville Bible Commentary, and Psalms 1 and 2, of the Message of Biblical Theology series, and founding editor of The Collegeville Pastoral Dictionary of Biblical Theology.

Carol J. Dempsey, OP, PhD, teaches Old Testament at the University of Portland.

Contents Editor’s Preface Chapter One: The Psalms within the Bible and Christian Community Chapter Two: Methods for Studying and Praying the Psalms Chapter Three: Hymns of Praise Chapter Four: Hymns of Praise Chapter Five: Celebrating the Lord as King and Creator Chapter Six: The Royal Dynasty of David Chapter Seven: Community Laments Chapter Eight: Individual Laments Chapter Nine: Psalms for Sickness and Dying Chapter Ten: Cursing and Reconciliation Chapter Eleven: Psalms for Reconciliation Chapter Twelve: Wisdom Psalms Chapter Thirteen: Thanksgiving Psalms Questions for Reflection Editor’s Preface The death of Fr. Carroll Stuhlmueller, C.P., in February 1994 was a sad experience for his students, friends, and biblical colleagues. A scholar of great insight and profound thought, Carroll was a prolific writer who, up until his last days, was busy working on articles and manuscripts, including The Spirituality of the Psalms. He had completed a first draft of all the chapters but two—Chapters 12 and 13—which Fr. Timothy Lenchak, S.V.D., supplied from Carroll’s commentary Psalms 1 and 2. This text on the spirituality of the psalms represents the thought and work of Fr. Carroll Stuhlmueller, C.P. Because the incomplete manuscript was fifteen years old when I received it, the work needed some editing, revising, and updating, all of which I have done with care so as not to lose Carroll’s "voice" and "hand" in the text. It has been a privilege for me to work on Carroll’s manuscript, and I am grateful to Linda Maloney of The Liturgical Press, who invited me to bring Carroll’s work to completion. I am also grateful to Fr. Timothy Lenchak, S.V.D., who read and edited the first draft of this work, prior to my receiving it. I would also like to acknowledge Lissa Romell who worked untiringly to type out Carroll’s hand-written manuscript in preparation for editing and publication. I would be remiss if I did not express sincere gratitude to Fr. Donald Senior, C.P., who was one of Carroll’s revered colleagues at the Catholic Theological Union in Chicago where Carroll taught for many years. Don has advocated consistently that Carroll’s unfinished projects be brought to completion. Finally, this work is dedicated to the memory of Fr. Carroll Stuhlmueller, C.P., who, in the company of saints, proclaims:

How lovely is your dwelling place,

O Lord of hosts! ...

my heart and my flesh sing for joy

to the living God (Ps 84:1, 2b).
