The focus of this next volume in The Long Line of Godly Men Profile Series is upon the preeminent English hymn writer Isaac Watts. In an age of simplistic and repetitive worship songs, the church must not forget the Father of English Hymnody. In this profile of the great hymn writer, Douglas Bond writes that Watts life and words can enrich the lives and worship of Christians today. Additional titles in A Long Line of Godly Men Profiles series, The Heroic Boldness of Martin Luther, The Gospel Focus of Charles Spurgeon, The Mighty Weakness of John Knox, The Unwavering Resolve of Jonathan Edwards, The Expository Genius of John Calvin
- Far exceeded expectations
This is no run of the mill bio. Author is extremely knowledgeable about hymnody and is inspiring both about Watt's life and his hymns. Does not come across as intellectual. Despite its depth, this book can be appreciated and digested while driving. I would like to listen to this 1 or 2 times more even though I got a lot out of the first listening.
Vance does a top notch job of reading.
