A Heart to Praise My God: * Provided commentaries for 52 Wesley hymn texts *Includes the complete hymn text--and the Biblical text upon which the hymn is based--printed with each commentary *Features a historical "time-line" of the Wesleys *Offers insights into Wesley's theology Each hymn receives individual treatment. Following Wesley's habit of basing hymns directly on Scripture passages, the biblical text is printed first (where none is designated by Wesley, the author supplies one). Then the central question addressed by the hymn is raised, which in turn is followed by the printing of the hymn itself (words only). The main exposition and commentary then follows. A Heart to Praise My God contains very helpful aids for: * preaching * teaching * new member training * confirmation * adult Bible study
