Hymns and their authors are a fascinating subject. So often the life story of the hymn-writer, or some incident from it, finds expression in the form of a hymn that then becomes a means of blessing to many thousands of people. In compiling this collection of brief biographies of some of the great hymn-writers Mrs. Elsie Houghton has put the Christian world in her debt. She has sketched in some of these remarkable details of their lives that can help us to appreciate at a new deeper level of works we have sung and loved for years. To have done so in a manner that always keeps our interest and is so easy to read would guarantee this book will be welcomed wherever great hymns are appreciated.
