Summer in the Psalms: Eight Weeks in the Prayer Book of Jesus
Why study the Psalms together as a church?
“The Psalms are the prayer book of Jesus Christ in the truest sense of the word. He prayed the Psalter and now it has become his prayer for all time…we understand how the Psalms can be prayer to God and yet God’s own Word, precisely because here we encounter the praying Christ…because those who pray the psalms are joining in with the prayer of Jesus Christ, their prayer reaches the ears of God. Christ has become their intercessor…” – Dietrich Bonhoeffer, 20th century German theologian, pastor, and martyr.
