Description: Talented hymnwriters know the teaching and formative power of their hymns as theological agents. The critical singer/reader of hymns will note the viewpoint(s) of the hymns he or she sings. Interested in studying where and how hymns and theological doctrine intersect? This session provides a survey of the hymns of four preeminent and beloved twentieth-century hymnwriters: Fred Pratt Green, Fred Kaan, Timothy Dudley-Smith, and Brian Wren. The survey seeks to identify how these important hymnwriters explore the doctrine of God’s transcendence and immanence in their hymns.
