In an age of simplistic and repetitive worship songs, the church must not forget Isaac Watts, "the Father of English Hymnody." In this profile of the great hymn writer, Douglas Bond writes that Watts' life and words can enrich the lives and worship of Christians today. The Long Line of Godly Men Profiles, conceived by Series Editor Steven J. Lawson, are designed to introduce giants of the Christians faith and to show how they used their particular spiritual gifts, personality traits, or ministry abilities in serving God. The goal of the series is to set forth followers of Christ who are themselves worthy to be followed.
