Maker, in Whom We Live; Hark! The Herald Angels Sing; Spirit of Faith, Come Down; O for a Thousand Tongues to Sing; Love Divine, All Loves Excelling; Christ from Whom All Blessings Flow; O the Depth of Love Divine; and Christ the Lord is Risen Today. These are eight hymns (of the 46 written by Charles Wesley) found in the UM Hymnal that are the themes of this eight session study. The song lyrics are printed in each session accompanied by an emphasis on the biblical content and an explanation of the principal theological issues illuminated by the hymn. There is also an introduction, biographical chapters, conclusions, and a bibliography for additional reading. 

This mixture of explication, discussion and singing should accomplish three of Charles Wesley's aims for his music:
(1) Teach scripture with each hymn is solidly based on biblical text
(2) Serve as sung affirmations of faith for individuals and groups
(3) Perform a liturgical function leading people to soul-searching  and praise.   There is a separate Leader's Guide #0687036682 which will include a CD with the music.
