MR. PIPES AND THE BRITISH HYMN MAKERS, by Douglas Bond
Two young Americans, Annie and Drew, who are on vacation in England, learn a great deal about famous British hymn writers as they are befriended by an elderly Mr. Pipes. They also learn about the value of traditional worship and praise. 256 pages.
“Just what kind of books are the Mr. Pipes stories? Are they lessons in church history? Are they guides to family devotions? Are they unit studies on hymnody and classic ecclesiastical music? Are they basic theological primers? The answer is yes, they are all these. But what is more, they are also delightful tales with memorable characters and intriguing plot twists. In other words, these are the kind of books every family is going to want to have and read--and reread again and again." George Grant, Author of Going Somewhere, The Christian Almanac
