Reviews - What do customers think about Hymns for Signing (American Sign Language)?

Excellent resource for church interpreters  Sep 2, 2007
This book is intended for people who are already fluent in ASL - there are no signs pictured. If you need a religious sign dictionary, try Religious Signing by Elaine Costello or Interpreting at Church by Leo Yates Jr.

However, this an excellent resource for church interpreters. Hymns have been a thorn in my side when interpreting church over the years. Sometimes you can't find out what hymns will be used in advance or don't have time to prepare, which is often as labor intensive as interpreting Shakespeare. This book takes a lot of work out of conceptually accurate church interpreting.
Hymns for Signing-American Sign Language  Jun 3, 2006
If you are learning to sign or if you have experience, this book is a major disapointment! It is very confussing. It doesn't tell you what things mean. I don't understand what reference the writer used that would enable the reader to figure it out.
No Signs  Jul 7, 2005
When I purchased this book I expected to see the signs with the words. The book is a good resource, but unfortunately not quite what I expected. Would not have purchased if I knew the signs were missing.
Very useful  Aug 30, 2003
This is just what I needed. After taking ASL classes, I knew the signs, but it was difficult to know how to put some some of the language and phraseology of the hymns into terminology that would be signable and easily understood. Having this book makes for a lot less pausing and fingerspelling.
A Wonderful Resource for Signing Hymns for the Deaf  Jul 3, 1999
What a wonderful resource for a deaf ministry! Its focus is on relaying the concepts in the hymns to the deaf, not the exact words of the hymns (it is in ASL not Signed Exact English.) It does not have pictures of how to sign the hymns because its focus is not for people who just want to let the hearing watch an interpreter and see the beauty of the signs. It is to allow the person signing to get the message of the hymns to the deaf person in the congregation without having to spend countless hours thinking of how to put English into ASL. So it is written for those who have a signing vocabulary and a little experience. And the dictionary references are helpful so if there is a word you don't know how to can look it up. It is easy for even a beginner like me to use. Again, its purpose is to allow the signer to look at the words in this hymnal and sign them as they are written. It definatly cuts down on the amount of time needed to prepare for worship.
