Summary Formats Reviews About the author Annotations


Although Manning was raised and remained a Congregationalist, he nevertheless appreciated and studied the works and traditions of other Christian convictions. This book contains a collection of five papers Manning gave at Cambridge University between 1924 and 1939. These papers concern the still widely-known and well-loved hymns of Charles Wesley and Isaac Watts, examining their form and content and how they uniquely move and communicate truth to readers (or singers). Manning approaches the subject ecumenically and sympathetically, as he read these papers before both Methodist and Congregationalist religious societies.
