You may have noticed the ad recently inserted on the right hand side of this blog. It is for the tour led by my friend Douglas Bond covering great hymn writers in England & Wales. I can’t think of a better person to lead such a tour! My family has loved his Mr. Pipes books which are essentially such a tour in book form (you can see my reviews of these books, along with other Bond books, here). I would love, one day, to be able to take my family on one of these tours, so I wanted to make sure you knew about this opportunity.
And while we’re talking Bond, I have just begun reading his new book The Mighty Weakness of John Knox! It is good history written with the flair of a novel (as good history ought to be written!). Special deals on this book are also currently available at Bond’s website.
