Description - Praying the Scriptures by Demetrius Dumm

Praying the Scriptures sets a number of biblical prayers in the context of biblical revelation so that they are seen as celebrations of God's great saving deeds of the Exodus and the Resurrection. Thus they bring us into the very heart of the experience of salvation in that ultimate prayer-event that is the Eucharist. In this context prayers of petition become acts of trust in the goodness of the God who entered our world definitively in the person of Jesus Christ, while prayers of gratitude convert the lives of believers from fear and guilt to courage and joy. "Father Demetrius Dumm demonstrates his skills as an outstanding teacher and retreat master in this very helpful book. He writes in an attractive style, clearly and to the point. As befits his Benedictine heritage, he enriches the reader's liturgical understanding. Most helpfully of all, he leads us beyond settling for superficiality in prayer to help us find God's presence in his revealed word. Even more, he challenges us to be changed in and by that word. His treatment of the Psalms alone makes this book a valued aid for all who pray the Liturgy of the Hours." Cardinal William H. Keeler, Archbishop of Baltimore
