Single Author Collections

Since 2003 this author's hymn texts have been available in a substantial 'collected edition' from Hope Publishing Company in the US, and Oxford University Press in the UK. A House of Praise subsumes four earlier books, and contains all the texts from them, sometimes in updated and corrected versions. A supplement was issued by the same publishers in 2006.
