Hymns and human life by Erik Routley( Book )

"The book begins with the Middle Ages and goes forward to the Reformation, Luther, the English Puritans, Watts, Wesley and others in the wonderful century for hymnology -1750-1850- with hymns of devotion, praise, peace and blessing; included as well are hymns of wrath and, it might be said, of damnation. Then we are told of the people in the story, the hymn writers, bishops, priests and deacons, hymns from the mission field, manse and presbytery, hymns by men of letters, men of action, scholars, and women. Dr. Routley writes with an attractive lightness of touch, but there can be no doubt about the serious value and the great qualities of his book." -- Book jacket
English religious dissent by Erik Routley( Book )

17 editions published between 1960 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 623 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Religious Dissent (which Dr Routley takes to include all free Church denominations) is as English an institution as the House of Commons. That it was not always so is well enough known; why it became so is not. The Dissenters have never been adept at public relations, and many who are ignorant of their faith regard them as an uncomely - though worthy - body of men. This historical portrait does not paint out their blemishes; but it does give attention to their virtues. The main purpose is to show the changing nature of Dissent and what it has dissented against. Dr Routley does not trace the history of each denomination: he is concerned rather with the overall pattern of non-conformity. However, he gives special attention to the early origins of Puritanism and he re-examines in detail the cultural and intellectual 'Dissent' of the Reformation, in which the English dissenting tradition has its roots

Christian hymns observed : when in our music God is glorified by Erik Routley( Book )

6 editions published between 1979 and 1983 in English and Undetermined and held by 387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While there have been a number of books concerned with the hymns of the Christian church, there are not many that combine real originality with intellectual integrity. Yet it is exactly this combination that makes Christian Hymns Observed, Erik Routley's final statement on Christian hymnody, such a valuable addition to the literature. Simply because he studied the subject for fifty years, he could open the book with the statement "hymns are delightful and dangerous things," and then close it with these words: "But where a hymn in a service of worship beckons to the worshiper at his or her best and causes that worshiper to feel or say, 'That is what I wanted to say, but I am grateful to whoever put the words in my mouth, ' then it has done its work." Erik Routley has indeed done his work. This short book will be cherished for years to come by those who want a fresh and yet comprehensive approach to the subject of Christian hymnody. - Foreword
