O Worship the King by Joni Eareckson Tada, John MacArthur, Robert & Bobbie Wolgemuth
This team of authors has provided us with an inspirational volume focused on twelve excellent hymns of the faith. Hymns selected include “A Mighty Fortress Is Our God,” “It Is Well With My Soul,” “O Worship The King” and “Be Thou My Vision.” Each hymn is examined doctrinally by MacArthur, with the circumstances behind the writing of each hymn detailed by the Wolgemuths. Joni provides an experience in which each hymn has influenced her life. Put it all together and we have a book that will encourage and bless all who love the hymns and the truths they proclaim. As an added bonus the book comes with a CD on which Tada and MacArthur sing each hymn. At least that’s what I’ve been told—the person who gave me my copy apparently snitched the CD.
O Worship the King would make an excellent gift. It could also supply the backgrounds of the hymns for worship services or personal edification.
