Anne Steele (1717–1778) has been recognized as one of the leading female hymnwriters of her time. In Anne Steele and Her Spiritual Vision, Priscilla Wong demonstrates how Steele was able to see God in different circumstances of her life and expressed it in three main themes that can be found in her hymnody: the glory of God in creation, faith in the face of suffering, and hope in the promised glory.
This close analysis of Steele’s hymns not only establishes a more coherent and intimate picture of the hymnwriter’s life and spirituality but also cultivates a more intense desire for Christians at large to grow in their faith and understanding of God.
Author Priscilla Wong received a degree in English literature from York University and a Master of Theological Studies degree from Toronto Baptist Seminary. She has training in technical and creative writing as well as broadcast journalism. She lives in Richmond Hill, Ontario, with her husband, Lee, and her two children, Nathaniel and Jenuine.
Endorsements “Anne Steele’s vibrant faith embraced every circumstance of life, whether joy or sorrow, life or death. In these pages Priscilla Wong ably demonstrates that Anne’s poetry always leads the reader straight to the heart of God, the source of all good.” — Faith Cook
