In an age of simplistic and repetitive choruses, many churches are rediscovering the blessing of theologically rich and biblically informed songs. In the latest addition to our A Long Line of Godly Men Profile series, Douglas Bond introduces us to Isaac Watts, “the father of English hymnody.” Douglas Bond urges Christians to delight in the grandeur, beauty, and joy of Watts’ poetry. We pray that you would regain a sense of God’s majesty as we celebrate the God-given poetic wonder of Isaac Watts.
Bond gives an intriguing sketch of Watts' life, creatively weaving Watts' poetry throughout. Watts' deep devotion to the doctrines of grace is unmistakably presented here. From these pages, one can learn a trove of information about a man committed to making the Savior's glories known.
