Bible Studies
One of the ways in which hymns can enrich our Christian lives is by becoming the springboard for bible study. This is doubly enriching in that it enlivens our study of the biblical text, and fills out our understanding of the hymn when we come to sing it. In inviting contributions for this selection of studies we have concentrated on contemporary material, and for a number, we have asked authors to provide a biblical study of one of their own hymns.
