The author has done the necessary research on the Book of Psalms by placing each Psalm in its proper category. Bonhoeffer's careful, insightful work has made Psalms more meaningful and understandable to me. I bought this book for each of my adult children.

At 55 pages, including introductory materials and a 13 page bio, this sparse collection of comments on the psalms ranks only one star.
