Gaunt, Alan: The Hymn Texts of Alan Gaunt
Hymn Texts to 1991
The Reverend Alan Gaunt, a minister of the United Reformed Church, is particularly known for his hymn texts “We pray for peace” and “Lord Christ, we praise your sacrifice”. This volume brings together his corpus of writing. He is strongly biblical in his approach and is prepared to look at Bible, faith and the contemporary world squarely, bringing them together in texts for use in worship. His work also includes some new translations from early texts intended for use by a new generation. Such new exposure to the original through a new translation can be salutary. The introduction is written by the Reverend Alan Luff.
