Reviews - What do customers think about The Christian Life Hymnal: Red?
Excellent hymnal with a great selection! Nov 30, 2008
As a pianist, I have truly enjoyed this hymnal. It has an excellent selection of hymns; especially of Christmas songs. As the holiday season approaches, I have enjoyed playing Christmas carols. One of my favorites is "Savior's Lullaby." Not only is it good for church music, it is great for family worship. This hymnal was also transposed down to a better singing range. I highly recommend this excellent hymnal.
Nice Variety, including the old standards May 10, 2008
My family wanted several (matching!) hymnals for our family devotional time, and so my internet search begun. I wanted a hymnal that had all of the old standard doctrinally-rich ones, such as "A Mighty Fortress is our God," "Immortal, Invisible, God Only Wise," "The Church's One Foundation." It's amazing how many hymals I found that did not contain all three of these! I also wanted other favorites of ours that are common, but not quite as high up there on the list of standard hymns that most Christians (at least before the last decade or so) know, such as "Day by Day," "Be Thou My Vision," and "And Can It Be."
This hymal was a perfect fit for us. It contained all of those. It also has a few newer ones that are broadly known such as, "As the Deer" and "In Christ Alone" by Keith Getty and Stuart Townend. All of them, however, could be considered "hymns" with depth to them. In other words, there are none of the ones that are pure praise choruses.
Each hymn does have a verse cited at the top, and the translation used varies. We don't care for some of the translations used, but that's not a deal-breaker for us. We can always look it up in our New King James version.
We've been very happy with our set of hymnals. They're great for using within the family, having a hymn sing with friends, or in a church setting. Note that when there are several potential musical selections for a particular hymn, they are often all presented.
Christian Life Hymnal Apr 19, 2008
The Christian Life Hymnal was recommended to me by someone on an accompaniment forum who used it at church services because it contains a host of well known songs in different keys. I found it to be a great resource for some lesser known and beautiful arrangements of songs that fit very well into service. I highly recommend it as an addition to a standard musical library of well known hymnals and religious music books.
The Christian Life Hymnal Jul 30, 2007
We purchased this hymnal for family use in conjuntion with the hymn study book, "Then Sings My Soul." The hymnal contains most of the songs we have studied. I appreciate that the editor did not change original words on hymns like "Come Thou Fount," as seen in most contemporary hymnals. The songs will be familiar to most Christians in Baptist, Bible, Community, and other similar churches. A solid hymnbook.
Solid hymnal Apr 10, 2007
Nice burgundy outside; hardcover. Some of the songs it has in slightly different versions.
