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. -- George Grant, Author of Going Somewhere and The Christian Almanac

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. -- Robert J. Morgan, pastor and author of Then Sings My Soul

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 Douglas Bond has created compelling vignettes that deliver real hymnological information, rich in historical content and context, with insightful applications to modern Christian life.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! -- Paul S. Jones, organist and music director, Tenth Presbyterian Church, Philadelphia
