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. 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. 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.
The For Today series was designed to provide reliable and accessible resources for the study and real life application of important biblical texts, theological documents, and Christian practices. The emphasis of the series is not only on the realization and appreciation of what these subjects have meant in the past, but also on their value in the present--"for today." Thought-provoking questions are included at the end of each chapter, making the books ideal for personal study and group use.
Elkton, MDAge: 55-65Gender: female1 Stars Out Of 5Wasn't what I was looking forJune 8, 2012Elkton, MDAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 2Value: 2Meets Expectations: 1Hymns 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.
Q: What specific hymns are in the book and how is the music presented? I tried all the views of the book I could see to click on. Still no clue as to the actual music. Can't buy that till I know more...
This book is a discussion of forty hymn poems, analyzing the insights they provide for Christian faith. There is no music in the book.
