We all have favorite Christmas carols or Easter hymns, but we sometimes overlook their artistry—not realizing that these familiar songs are also powerful works of devotional poetry! This anthology invites us to slow down to experience their beauty, as English professor Leland Ryken provides historical background, literary analysis, and a complementary Scripture text. The result is a wonderfully devotional and poetic study of the Christian’s year.
