Read and Reflect with the Classics: Classic Hymns by B&H Books is a well put together volume that takes time in hymns to a deeper level. The editors do a wonderful job of lifting up classic hymns to the level of Scripture – the way some people do in order to promote their cultural music preferences – and instead offer these lovely collection as a way to engage God in song (or poem), Scripture, and meditation.
While I was familiar with many of the hymns chosen for the collection, there were many others that I have not sung before. Encountering the new songs opened up the door to genres and lyrics to be learned and engaged with in a world of curiosity.
The book is worth traveling through as you reflect upon the lyrics of saints from the past and the timeless truths of Scripture.
