“What Wondrous Love Is This”

Hymns Of Wonder And Worship To Remember His Love…

I was looking for something else an ran across this neat book on my bookshelf, shamefully forgotten, written by John MacArthur, Joni Eareckson Tada, Robert & Bobbie Wogelmuth.
This book covers 12 Hymns, a chapter for each one. Tada and the Wogelmuths write what I would call little devotions about the songs and some history to them. This best part about each chapter, at least to me, would be John MacArthur’s contribution subtitled “In Light Of The Word”. Dr. MacArthur expounds on the theological richness and depths of these songs to the light of Scripture.
If we were to apply this to all the  Christian songs we sing there would be dumpsters full of trash. Then again many would not understand what a Scripturally sound song would be. I would suggest you pick this book up and give it a read. Like me, you might learn something.
