    Mixed bag of excellent and dull papers I thoroughly enjoyed reading some of these papers and some were exceedingly enlightening. On the other hand, some were as dull as ditchwater and can probably be skipped without missing much.

    These essays were a bit "hit or miss." The variety of authors and their actual beliefs is very broad which makes it interesting and keeps you on your toes. Some of the topics, however, just weren't reading about (e.g. "Marketing the Gospel: Music in English-Canadian Protestant Revivalism"). These essays were a bit "hit or miss."

    I love hymns and so I was excited to find this title that explored the role of hymns in American Protestant history and theology. Though this book largely was not what I had hoped (i.e. a biographical look at hymn writers, hymnal compilations, etc.) it still had some really fun moments. For one thing, it was very scholarly which meant good news and bad news. The good news? Examination of very nuanced topics that I may never really think about but are nonetheless important. Examples include white I love hymns and so I was excited to find this title that explored the role of hymns in American Protestant history and theology.

For one thing, it was very scholarly which meant good news and bad news. The good news? Examination of very nuanced topics that I may never really think about but are nonetheless important. Examples include white America's acceptance of the black church hymn tradition, how Catholicism adopted so many Protestant hymns, and a look at the role of death in Protestant hymns. Yet, also because of its scholarly nature, it lent to some particularly dry moments. Overall, I'd say I enjoyed this book and will probably use it as a reference for any projects that take up exploring the role of hymns in the church, though I would largely not recommend it.

    Yep, seriously... I've gotten fascinated with the history of the old songs we're learning at HOGJam. This seems to concentrate more on the lyrics (the radical departure from using strictly biblical texts) and less on the musicology, but still pretty interesting. Yep, seriously...

    Didn't read all of it, but an interesting volume to dip in and out - really underscores the importance of hymns in developing our theology. Didn't read all of it, but an interesting volume to dip in and out - really underscores the importance of hymns in developing our theology.
