Rattenbury revisited

The theology of Charles Wesley’s hymns 1
ByBrian E. Beck

J. E. Rattenbury wrote the standard study of the theology of Charles Wesley’s hymns in 1941. This chapter offers a fresh evaluation, noting the diminishing influence of the hymns and suggesting reasons for it, the areas of spirituality they do not reach and the prospects for the hymns in the future.
