Praying the Scriptures

Demetrius Dumm, OSB

Summary

Throughout Dumm demonstrates his skills as an outstanding teacher and his careful explanation of biblical themes makes for an enlightening read. He writes in an attractive clear style. The work is designed to allow scholarship to bear fruit in the spiritual life of the non-scholar. Therefore the work is well suited for those wishing to deepen their prayer life by seeking to nourish it through Scripture and through a more meaningful use of the Sacraments. Whilst the text has a decided Catholic orientation Christian of other faiths would also find it very useful.
