In The Spirituality of the Psalms, Carroll Stuhlmueller, C.P., 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. This 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, S.V.D., added from Stuhlmueller's commentary Psalms 1 and 2. The completed text was then edited, revised, and updated by Carol Dempsey, O.P., 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."
Lenchak is assigned to the office of the biblical coordinator of the divine Word generalate in Rome. A
