Combining internationally acclaimed Paul Seawright’s breathtaking photographs and John Parker’s descriptive text, Abide With Me is a gorgeous collection of the sites, sounds, and history that gave birth to some of Christianity’s most poignant and reverent hymns. Exquisitely designed with full color images, rich biological and historical detail, and “on-the-scence” exploration of sites that inspired popular hymns. Focuses on respected composers like Isaac Watts, Charles Wesley, and John Newton.

John H. Parker, Professor of English at Lipscomb University in Nashville, Tennessee, has earned degrees from the University of Tennessee, and Harding Graduate School of Religion in Memphis, Tennessee.

Paul Seawright is Chair of Photography at the University of Ulster. His photographs are exhibited worldwide and in museum collections across the United States.

    Do the Church Bells ring “Abide with Me”. A TV Chef, I think it was Rick Stein, said that the Church Bells ring Abide with Me as the Fishing Boats return to the Harbour. Was this poetic Licence, perhaps? I am sure the bells ringing at eventide, whatever the tune, was a great comfort to them returning to port after a tough time at sea.

    Best wishes,
