The Life and Legacy of Isaac Watts

Isaac Watts-2Episode 86 centers on a discussion of a very gifted man from the late 17th and early-to-mid 18th century. Known as the Father of English Hymnody, Isaac Watts (1674-1748) was a gifted hymn-writer, pastor, theologian, logician and philosopher. His influence remains to this day. He was the author of 500-750 hymns, perhaps, the best-known of which is the Christmas hymn “Joy To the World.”
