Douglas Bond writes a Fantastic Book!
This book was wonderful! This is a short book (163 pages), but well worth the read. I have only read a little of his author Historical stories, but my siblings love his writing. I was not disappointed with it either! This book brought all glory to God and made me read and contemplate the hymns he wrote in a different light. The History behind this hymn writer is awesome, the author really did some good research!! I highly suggest you read this book today! I hope to ency other books in this series of A long line of Godly men and to read all this author has to offer!!
We all know and love ‘Joy to the World,’ ‘Jesus Shall Reign,’ ‘Alas and Did My Savior Bleed,’ ‘When I Survey the Wondrous Cross,’ ‘O God, Our Help in Ages Past but how many of you have ever wondered why these hymns were written. You will learn what moved the writer! Go to http://www.ligonier.org/store/the-poetic-wonder-of-isaac-watts-hardcover/ to order and to read a free chapter today! Some say this book is dry but I did not find it so but well worth my time! This is a very well written biography on the hymn writers life. Order today! A very Inspiring read!
