  • From generation to generation, Christianity is passed down not only through words that are spoken but also through words that are sung. The churchs life and vitality has often been profoundly shaped by the great hymns of the faith.
    But there is more to hymns than classic melodies and stately lyrics. Embodied and preserved in our hymns are the key doctrines of Christian belief. When we think of Gods character and attributes, we speak of him as a mighty fortress, a bulwark never failing. When we consider his goodness to us, we remember that great is his faithfulness. And when we think of Gods life-transforming power, we sing of amazing grace, how sweet the sound.

    Musician Richard Allen Farmer explores the messages of twenty-five of the greatest hymns of the Christian faith. With careful exposition and thoughtful reflection, he shows how biblical truths are encapsulated in a hymns lyrics, stanza by stanza or even in a single line of a single verse. His consideration of familiar texts uncovers fresh meaning and new significance for the Christian journey.

    Rediscover the profound insights of Christian hymnody. You will never sing these hymns the same way again.
