Book Of The Month For November 2019:  Praise & Honor: Hymn-Inspired Devotions

Praise & Honor: Hymn-Inspired Devotions

by Timothy Shoup

2019 / Paperback / 288 Pages

Overview:

When you leave church humming a hymn, you are humming a sermon. Good hymns are filled to the brim with Christ. The purpose of singing them is to praise God by proclaiming the saving work of His Son. 

A Look Inside

In Timothy Shoup's Praise and Honor: Hymn-Inspired Devotions, each of the 14 well-loved hymns is introduced with a short reading followed by a devotional for each stanza of each hymn. Shoup calls upon pastoral experience, personal stories, and hundreds of Bible passages to amplify the rich meaning of the hymn texts and how they proclaim Christ Jesus as Lord and Savior. Of the hymns chosen, most are familiar, a few are newer, and they all enrich faith and bring one closer to the Lord of life.
