Bachelor of Divinity (B.Div)
Christian song, as it has been in the past, so it is today a tremendous influence in the life of God’s people here on earth. Next only to the Bible, the Hymnody of Christendom is probable the most influential medium of religious culture that we possess. The Hymnody of the Christian Church can be compared to wells of living water. From these wells Christians drink deeply in public worship. By these wells Christian spiritual life is awakened, educated1, and sustained. From these wells Christians find strength and inspiration for their tasks during the week; they find power to carry on in the midst of their troubles. Truly what a sad world it would be without the Christian Song.
