Editorial Reviews

Just what kind of books are the Mr. Pipes stories? Are they lessons in church history? Are they guides to family devotions? Are they unit studies on hymnody and classic ecclesiastical music? Are they basic theological primers? The answer is yes, they are all these. But what is more, they are also delightful tales with memorable characters and intriguing plot twists. In other words, these are the kind of books every family is going to want to have and read--and reread again and again.
I'm glad I met Mr. Pipes! He's an enriching companion for children and adults, and one of the most engaging 'teachers' I've had in a long time. A treasure trove of stories for both young and old.
Splendidly written stories. Douglas Bond has created compelling vignettes that deliver real hymnological information, rich in historical content and context, with insightful applications to modern Christian life. The Accidental Voyage is not only worthwhile reading for kids but entertaining, truth-filled storytelling. Many adults would benefit from tagging along on Mr. Pipes’ adventures!

    I appreciated the author's focus on various hymns and hymn-writers of the early centuries (information is not easily found elsewhere).

    I also liked that the author points out that these hymn-writers were not perfect - and we may not agree with everything they said and done, but they still wrote a beautiful hymn that glorifies God.

    Also, the author points out a couple times throughout the book what exactly makes a song a "hymn". And how to keep our focus on God. He mentions in general the "7-11" songs, and other contemporary songs that you can't even tell they're being sung to God. (Which I've experienced myself - "oh, what a great love song......oh, wait, that's a song to GOD????" - Not that we shouldn't sing love songs to God, but shouldn't we be a bit more in awe of God than we are our BF/GF?)

    Anyway, good book. I'm eager to purchase and read more in this series.
