Product Description

In Bread in the Wilderness, Merton looks at the psalms as poetry; in this book he regards them as prayer. In Praying the Psalms, Merton guides the reader through selected Psalms and explains why the Psalms are the best way to praise God.

Merton writes that: “It is by singing the Psalms, by meditating on them, loving them, using them in all the incidents of our spiritual life, that we enable ourselves to enter more deeply into that active participation in the liturgy which is the key to the deepest and truest interior life.” — from page 5

Thomas Merton, OCSO was a Trappist monk at the Abbey of Our Lady of Gethsamani where he lived from 1941 until his death in 1968. He was ordained to the priesthood in 1949. He was a writer, theologian, poet, social activist, and scholar of comparative religion.
