Product Description

Few can argue with the power of music to touch the heart. Voices shared in worshipful song allow us to honor God in a truly beautiful way. Now, in Hymns for Today, renowned hymn writer Brian Wren helps us understand why this is so. Wren surveyed hundreds of hymns written since the 1960s to compile this discussion of forty hymn poems and to share the insights they provide for Christian faith. Grouped in chapters titled "Hymns? For Today?" "Jesus," "Spirit," "Church," "Worship," "Witness," "Praise," and "Treasure," these contemporary hymns are analyzed for how they express Christian faith and traditional themes in fresh ways. Questions for discussion are included for each chapter, making this book an excellent group study resource.

    Hymns for Today is a lovely collection of poems, but there is no music included. If you are looking for poetry, this is your book; but if you would like to find new hymns for Sunday morning's worship service, go elsewhere.
