From one of the leading worship songwriters of his generation comes a comprehensive songbook that spans seventy of Stuart’s greatest songs. From In Christ Alone to How Deep The Father’s Love, The Power Of The Cross to Beautiful Saviour, Stuart’s ability to match profound theological content to evergreen melodies has caused some to draw comparisons with the great hymnwriters of previous generations.
The journey is a complete one, starting with early songs and albums and running right the way through to the newest songs featured on Stuart’s latest album Creation Sings. Other greats from Stuart’s back catalogue include The Lord’s My Shepherd and There Is A Hope, as well as all of Stuart’s most frequently requested songs. With piano chord charts, it also includes a CD ROM with alternative arrangements, song words and a scriptural reference index for every song.
A man of integrity, Stuart’s thoughts on songwriting have significance for worship leaders, songwriters and creatives alike: “It is so important that our lives are built not on our feelings or circumstances, but on the word of God, and songs can really help us to meditate on and retain truth. I know from the correspondence I regularly receive that if you can express in songs the profound truth of the gospel in a poetic yet accessible way, they really can have an impact in people’s lives.”
