Item Description...
How Sweet the Sound is the Gospel in song-fresh stories of faith inspired by the hymns God's people love to sing. In that same quiet grove of maple and ash of author Wyatt Watkins's earlier volume-Gospel, Grits, and Grace-folks of Ashgrove Baptist Church are caught in the blessed act of making music together to the glory of God. Through moments of harmony and dissonance, sweetness and strife, lives are woven into the grandeur of great hymns of the church.

Publishers Description
How Sweet the Sound is the Gospel in song -- fresh stories of faith inspired by the hymns God's people love to sing. Each story brings to life in a moving and contemporary way the central message of 14 well-known hymns.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Ashgrove, Hymns and Sweetness  Jan 12, 2009
When I was interim pastor at Cumberland First Baptist Church, I had lunch with the one who penned "How Sweet the Sound." Little did I know at the time how my life would be touched by Wyatt Watkins. In just a matter of months he would become a pastor of Cumberland First Baptist Church. A church that is like no other Baptist church in Indiana because of its open, graceful, progressive, accepting stance toward all people, whether rich or poor, black or white of brown, male or female, lgbt or straight.

I soon learned that he was a musician and a story teller as well as an astute and gifted preacher. My upbringing didn't include classical music. However, when I went to hear my new pastor at a concert by the Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra, there he was playing his violin. With my upbringing I thought it was a fiddle like my grandpa played. He stimulated by love affair with classical music and renewed my love of hymns. I learned that the much-loved hymn "Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee," my very favorite hymn, was "Ode to Joy" from Ludwig Van Beethoven's Ninth Symphony!

Later, when I was interim pastor of First Baptist Church of South Bend, Indiana, he came to be a part of our Lenten series. He played several of the hymns he explains in this book and told stories of his experiences with them in the Ashgrove Baptist Church. Just as the hymns in this book "inspired faithful people" so they inspired us in the First Baptist Church of South Bend. This book is filled with the stories of hymns and hymn notes as well as the text of many. Like Philip Gulley, author of "Front Porch Tales: a Treasury of Stories Filled with Wit and Wisdom," notes, "...Watkins weaves story, music, humor and wisdom together to form a beautiful tapestry. It stirs the soul." Yes! This book will stir your soul as well if you choose to read it.
