Dan Damon is an internationally published writer of hymn texts and tunes and a Fellow of The Hymn Society. This is Dan's fifth collection from Hope Publishing Company and reflects his position as pastor of an urban, multi-cultural church: his writing focuses on social justice issues.

Dan's work is well researched. This collection includes short monographs about the writing of each piece, including research and circumstances of the writing. This allows the user to better understand the pieces themselves and to enable them to more clearly see how they might be used.

Included in this collection are texts by Dan and several other hymn writers, as well as tunes composed by Dan. Dan's own texts are set to his tunes and, in a few cases, other wellknown tunes. The issues covered by offerings in this collection include creation, children, the elderly, women, lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people, the poor, the oppressed, people with disabilities, migrants, immigrants, refugees, victims of human trafficking, victims of violence, persons with mental illness, and people of other faith traditions. The treatment of these sensitive, important issues is loving, inclusive, affirming and cordial.

The tunes in this collection vary in vocal setting. There are settings in four parts, as well as unison and two-part settings. The styles are widely eclectic, including chorales, contemporary "pop" settings, notated chants, spirituals, folk and jazz settings. …
