Gerhard Lohfink, renowned Scripture scholar and Catholic Media Association’s 2023 Author of the Year, invites us to be renewed through the image of the springs of true life bursting forth in our own lives.

The image of springs breaking forth from the earth moves us—not only because pure, fresh water is precious on our exploited planet, but also because springs are among the loveliest and most mysterious natural phenomena. By reflecting on the statement “All my springs are in you,” renowned Scripture scholar Gerhard Lohfink invites us to be renewed through the image of the springs of true life bursting forth in our own lives.

In All My Springs Are in You—citing Psalm 87:7—Lohfink focuses on fundamental beliefs, feasts and liturgical seasons, as well as distinctions and contrasts to break down any narrow interpretations of biblical texts readers may experience. The final verse in the Old Testament offers readers a means to uncover how much hope and revolutionary power may be found in numerous Bible texts that we may or may not be familiar with. By applying the psalm statement “All My Springs Are in You” directly to God, readers will come to read the text in a way that is biblical and transformative.

Gerhard Lohfink (1934-2024), was professor of New Testament exegesis at the University of Tübingen. His many award-winning books include The Most Important Words of Jesus, Between Heaven and Earth, The Forty Parables of Jesus, No Irrelevant Jesus, Jesus of Nazareth, Is This All There Is?, The Our Father, and Prayer Takes Us Home, all from Liturgical Press.

"Surging springs that arise from hidden depths convey Gerhard Lohfink's ability to provide refreshing insights from within these ancient biblical texts. Pages that have become predictable and overworked suddenly surge with new significance and attractiveness. Such is the beauty of the inspired word gushing up like living water."
Stephen J. Binz, author and speaker at

"To encounter the work of Gerhard Lohfink is to become his devoted student. In All My Springs Are In You, Lohfink breathes new life into biblical passages and church rituals otherwise as familiar as old slippers. I’m grateful for his scholarship, his craftsmanship, and the little flashes of wry humor that add such effervescence to his exegesis."
Paula Huston, author of One Ordinary Sunday

"In All My Springs Are in You, we are immersed in Lohfink's sermons and articles where he mines the biblical text. In short sermons he grounds his readers in texts drawn from the liturgical year. Focusing on the Bible’s historical context, Lohfink opens up the mystery of God at work in the world of Israel and in Christ, and addresses how this mystery can be appropriated in today’s very different world. In articles of greater length, he discusses such topics as the reign of God, the Eucharistic Prayer, and the role of priests and brings to the fore the meaning that these traditional topics have for the contemporary Christian community. It is not just that Lohfink expands our understanding, but he leads us into a deeper realization of our Christian faith and the joy that it brings to our lives."
