Review:

Martin Luther's Commentary on the Psalms is, to this reviewer's mind, among the few superlative treatments of those 150 gems of worship, for the reason that Luther is able to combine scholarship and passion. Fr. Carlos G. Valles, like Zephania Kameeta of Namibia, follows in that rich tradition with his Psalms for Contemplation. Fr. Valles is a Spanish priest working in India and writing in Hindi. This English translation, therefore, marks a point on a long cultural and linguistic journey. The editors use a genderinclusive translation of the Psalms, from which the author's feelings and responses emanate. The result is an invitation to the reader, as Fr. Valles says, to find a new personal song in the old Biblical forms. This is a formidable undertaking. The original power of language and titanic emotions of the Psalms dwarfs contemporary expression. Add to that the elliptical history from Spanish mind to Hindi statement to English translation and it should not surprise the reader to feel a weakening of utterance. These offerings must be read, therefore, as a parallel meditation rather than as a substitute statement. In that context, and not expecting the ancient cadences, the reader can be grateful to Fr. Valles for some valuable meditations. -- From Independent Publisher
