Much to my delight, Robert Cottrill left a comment on one such post I wrote about the hymn Close to Thee. I was thrilled to find he had a website dedicated to the hymns called Wordwise Hymns. He writes a lot of "today in history" about hymns and hymn writers. In the header of his blog you'll find these words..."Discussing the History and Biblical themes of the Hymns of the Church." That is precisely what he blogs about. You'll find topics like:
- What makes a good hymn
- Suffering hymn writers
- Historical issues
- Edification and entertainment
- and lots more!
