Fifth volume of the long-awaited translation of one of Augustines classics and a great work in Christian literature. Newly translated by Maria Boulding, O.S.B., whose masterful translation of Augustines Confessions in the same series has been praised as being "of a different level of excellence from practically anything else in the market" (Bishop Rowan Williams, Monmouth, England). As the psalms are a microcosm of the Old Testament, so the Expositions of the Psalms can be seen as a microcosm of Augustinian thought. They recapitulate and focus the experiences of Augustines personal life, his theological reflections, and his pastoral concerns as Bishop of Hippo.
"The Exposition of the Psalms in Sister Maria Boulding,,s fine translation fills a long existing vacuum among the translated works of Augustine available to contemporary readers. Her clear and attractive translation presents Augustine,,s expression of his own spirituality, which necessarily entails his most valuable theological insights. The comprehensive and scholarly 51-page introduction [in vol. 1] by Michael Fiedrowicz offers a key to the Psalms,, various depths of meaning and shows how they are a microcosm of Augustinian thought."
Mary T. Clark, RSCJ Author of: Augustine in the "Outstanding Christian Thinkers Series"
