Dr. Keith Schwanz takes a fascinating look at the spiritual journeys of 20 hymn writers in this book. Drawing on careful, insightful research, he gives us a glimpses into their lives, their thoughts, and the experiences that shaped their hymns. Includes contemporary writers like Gloria Gaither and George Beverly Shea, as well as voices from the past like Fanny Crosby and Haldor Lillenas. Hymn specialists will value this original research into hymn writers from the American Holiness Movement (a little researched portion of our hymnology). Makes for great devotional and inspirational reading, as well.
