2008 Baptist Hymnal

Isaiah Six has recently posted a review on the new Baptist Hymnal:

The Southern Baptist Convention typically publishes a new hymnal every fifteen or sixteen years. The last Baptist Hymnal was published in 1991 and the one before it was published in 1975. So we’ve been expecting a new version for some time. This summer, LifeWay Worship released the latest edition and here’s my conclusion: Stop what you’re doing, call whoever you need to call at your church and start raising funds to purchase this hymnal. Seriously. Mike Harland and his team have provided the church with an incredible resource that combines the rich tradition of historical hymnody with modern worship songs.

Greg Pittman then goes on to break down the hymnal through the outline below.  Click here to read the entire post.
