The people of God have always had cause to sing, and who has more reason to sing than the man or woman who knows the living God, the joy of sin forgiven and the certainty of a life to come? Throughout the Old and New Testaments, believers marked God's mighty acts of deliverance in song. Hymns based on the great themes of the Christian message have their own unique ministry to mind and heart, renewing faith and hope in God especially in days of spiritual decline and apathy. In this work Faith Cook traces the development of the Christian hymn from the early period of the Christian Church to the present day. Biographical sketches of a number of our best-known writers from the past figure here. We are also introduced to some of the lesser-known poets such as Paul Gerhardt, Samuel Crossman and Samuel Medley. Love for God and the great truths of the gospel shine out through the words of these men and women of faith. More than this, we also discover how their individual personalities and circumstances are reflected in the hymns they wrote. We can only stand amazed as we read of the demonstration of their faith, often in the face of severe persecution and hardship, which has been so wonderfully expressed in verse. It is our privilege to have available to us the lives and work of such gifted writers to enhance our worship. Their words stir us up, both as congregations and personally, to express our thankfulness to God. One day the whole redeemed church of Jesus Christ will join in one great anthem of praise to his glory. Faith Cook was born in China, the daughter of OMF missionaries, and now lives in Derbyshire, England. She is the author of a number of books, including Seeing the Invisible, Lives turned upside down, and Lady Jane Grey, the nine-day queen of England, all published by Evangelical Press. Faith is married to Paul who served as a pastor in churches in Northallerton, Shepshed and Hull. They have five children and ten grandchildren.
Our Hymn Writers traces the development of the English hymn from the early period of the Christian Church up until our present century by means of biographical sketches of a number of our best-known writers. The Apostle Paul urged his Ephesian readers to encourage one another with 'psalms, hymns and spiritual songs'. This book reviews the whole sweep of hymn-writing down the centuries. Raise your heart in thankfulness to God for the men and women who have brought us these great hymns.
