This classic reprint of Stories and Sketches of our Hymns and their Writers is a comprehensive compilation of many of the well known and well-loved hymns frequently sung by the Lord's people, enabling much appreciated spiritual sentiments to be expressed. It is not unusual for hymns to be sung while knowing little or nothing about the writers and the circumstances which gave rise to their works. The author of this publication has taken careful and thoughtful steps to provide the reader with this important and helpful information. While there are a number of publications on this subject available, there is no doubt this is a welcome addition to them. It will make interesting and encouraging reading to all who avail themselves of it.
