About the Book
Want clear poems/hymns that are based on lessons from the Bible and have a clear application for all Christians? Well, this Selections from Olney Hymns contains 2/3 of the classic Olney hymnbook - co-authored by John Newton and William Cowper in the late 1700's. (John Newton wanted to help his church members to remember Bible lessons so he wrote hymns to reinforce his sermons and with the help of his friend, William Cowper, the original hymnbook became a favorite of people all over the world.) This is definitely a must read for anyone wanting a clear understanding of Scripture and the human nature.
