Gaunt, Alan: Beyond All Words
Hymn Texts 2003-2011
The fourth collection of hymns by Alan Gaunt, Beyond All Words, brings together 89 texts on a variety of themes that are both contemporary and yet grounded in the perennial questions of theology.
In his Foreword, Emeritus Professor David M. Thompson writes ‘One could see this collection as a diary of the first decade of the third millennium, during which so many of the bright hopes with which the new era began were ruthlessly smashed with the most up-to-date military technology available. So again and again the human existential question “Why?” is translated into the ultimate question in Christian theology of the “Why?” of the cross.’
