LOVE & ANGER (BK)
John L. Bell & Graham Maule
Songs of lively faith and social justice
Throughout the 20th century, struggling people have sung their hurt and hope and so often found the ability to move forward. That every revolution needs its songs is rooted deeper than any century’s history. It is found in the Bible when Hebrew slaves lamented their plight, and a young woman called Mary sang the manifesto of God’s coming kingdom. This collection draws on Biblical songs of justice, world Church songs of protest & songs of experience from late 20th C. Britain. Includes ‘Don’t tell me of a faith that fears’, ‘Over my head’.
A CD recording by the Wild Goose Worship Group of all the songs in the book is also available.
