Classic Christian Hymn-Writers

Author: Elsie Houghton

Pages:  340


Hymns and their authors are a fascinating subject.  So often the life story of the hymn-writer, or some incident from it, finds expression in the form of a hymn that then becomes a means of blessing to many thousands of people.  In compiling this collection of brief biographies of some of the great hymn-writers, Mrs. Elsie Houghton has put the Christian world in her debt.  She has sketched in some of these remarkable details of their lives that can help us to appreciate at a new deeper level words that we have sung and loved for years.  To have done so in a manner that always keeps our interest and is so easy to read should guarantee that this book will be welcomed wherever great hymns are appreciated.
