"Rusty Edwards' Grateful Praise combines this Lutheran pastor's skill as both poet and composer of tunes for others' texts. Edwrads' particular gift as a hymn writer is to say the obvious with fresh energy and new insight. This is risky work, which always teeters on the rim of bathos, but even his courage and faithfulness seem inconsequential in the face of his finest accomplishments." Journal of the Association of Anglican Musicians, September 1998
