History of the Restoration Movement

Song Writers Of The Restoration Movement

According to many, other than the Bible the most important book to worshippers of God is the Song Book. Men and women for centuries have inspired the hearts and minds of believers through melodious and poetic songs of praise. The New Testament teaches that in worship to God psalms, hymns and spiritual songs be used to both praise God, and provoke one another to love and good works. Many gospel preachers of yesteryear were known as "Singing Evangelists." They traveled, preaching the gospel of righteousness, and supporting themselves through singing schools, producing Christian lyrics and tunes. This site is dedicated to the many who have blessed us through their wonderful talent of song-writing.
