Twenty Centuries of Living Hymns
Hymns, Church music
"The following is a distillation of a spoken presentation by the author, assisted by the Andrews University choirs, given as the opening event of Faith Ablaze! Hymns of Heart and Heritage, a hymn festival held at Andrews University in November, 1999.1 It is a journey through time, starting with the beginnings of the church and continuing to the present, one in which we hope you, the reader, like those present that evening, can come to a better understanding of how our hymns came about, and what they meant to those who preceded us. Given the constraints in time that evening and in space here, this presentation must be viewed as an introductory overview, one that we hope will give you a renewed appreciation for the magnificent legacy of hymns we have inherited from our spiritual ancestors."
