Review 1 for Worthy is the Lamb Puritan Poetry to Honor the Savior
Date:January 26, 2010
For those who are lovers of poetry, I could not recommend a more treasured collection of poetry than that which is found in 'Worthy is the Lamb.' This book is a collection of Christian poems written by Puritans of the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries. Such Puritans presented are Benjamin Keach, Philip Doddridge, Augustus Toplady, Isaac Watts, and John Newton (author of hymn 'Amazing Grace'). The Puritans were Christians greatly devoted to living pure lives in honor of their love for Jesus, and that strong devotion can be seen in their poetry. The poems in 'Worthy is the Lamb' will assist in elevating the hearts of Christians today to a level of devotion towards Jesus Christ that is the great tradition given to us by the Puritans.
