"Theology is by definition not an ivory tower discipline. It is not merely a form of academic discourse. When rightly conducted, theology is the conversation of the people of God seeking to understand the Lord whom we worship. This collection of psalms and hymns from Isaac Watts powerfully demonstrates how rich Christian theology informs worship. Theology leads to doxology. Let these lyrics from Isaac Watts not only inform your mind but also affect your heart for the glorious God we have the privilege of knowing and worshipping."
R. Albert Mohler, Jr, President, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
"Pity the would-be theologian who remains largely ignorant of earlier exegesis and theological reflection. And pity the hymn-writer and song-writer with almost no grasp of the great heritage of psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs that have cascaded from the pens of earlier generations. Now the incalculably seminal work of Isaac Watts is being made available once again. This volume calls up memories of many Watts songs that I sang in my youth or during nine years of living in the United Kingdom. We should not think of slavishly imitating Watts, of coursebut we could do a lot worse than studying and learning from his work. And some of his lyrics need to be resuscitated in new melodies."
