Publisher's Description

Have you ever found yourself humming a favorite childhood hymn, only to realize you could no longer embrace its message? Harry Cook explores how hymns reflect the religious beliefs of their times. He revisits the texts of popular hymns, posing such questions as: How true are they to the biblical texts that inspired them? What aspects of nineteenth and early twentieth-century piety have persisted into the twenty-first century through those hymns? And, how does one manage the conflict between the emotional appeal and the theological content of such hymns?
