Hymn Writers and Composers

277H Hymn Writers and Composers

For centuries, hymns have been an indispensable and frequent course of encouragement, teaching, and joy to believers, both in congregational use and in private devotions.  The premise of this course is that when a believer understands something about the writers, composers, and circumstances surrounding hymns, the hymns take on an added dimension of “inspiration” for those who use them.  Godly hymns have proven time and time again to be indispensable for Christian growth and steadfastness for believers in all walks of life, and knowing about their origins will greatly enhance our appreciation of them.
