Hymns Coming Alive Through Their Stories Mar 15, 2007
What a wonderful compilation of the stories behind the hymns that have nurtured our Christian world. To know the heart and reasons behind the depth of these beloved hymns. I have purchased this for many worship leaders and will continue to purchase for anyone who wants to read about the saints before us.
An Absolutely Delightful Book Jan 9, 2007
Never again will I sing the hymns of the faith without recalling the painful journey that led their authors to put words to paper. Robert Morgan has given us a wonderful resource to encourage, enlighten, and strengthen our faith.
Morgan's writing is devotional in nature and his book makes you want to continue reading. Even if you weren't raised with hymns--you'll enjoy this book, if only for the incredible stories and powerful messages.
Fascinating, music history/devotional Jan 4, 2007
I started using this with my kids as a nighttime devotional. I had to "translate" the stories into more-kid-friendly language, but they got a kick out of singing the songs after hearing how they came to be. Really, it is more of an adult book and if you grew up in a traditional Protestant church, you will really enjoy learning the background to so many famous hymns. It is very easy to use for a daily devotional since each story is only one page long.
Then Sings My Soul Jan 3, 2007
This is a fantastic book about the history of the old hymns. A great tool for teaching our children the old hymns also.
Beautiful! Dec 24, 2006
As a southern gospel singer, I am always interested in learning where song writers get their inspiration. I saw this book and just knew I had to have it. It is really interesting to learn about the old hymns that I grew up singing with my grandparents!
