Publisher's Description

This volume by Gracia Grindal introduces English-speaking readers to several significant yet unsung Lutheran women hymn writers from the sixteenth century to the present. After a brief introductory discussion of Elisabeth Cruciger, the first woman hymn writer of the Reformation, Grindal provides fascinating profiles of these talented Scandinavian women who "preached from home": Dorothe Engelbretsdatter, Birgitte Hertz Boye, Berthe Canutte Aarflot, Lina Sandell, Britt G. Hallqvist, and Lisbeth Smedegaard Andersen.

Grindal not only gives a biographical account of each woman — her life, her piety, her times — but also offers sparkling new English translations of each writer’s key hymns. In the last chapter Grindal recounts her own inspiring journey as a Lutheran woman hymn writer. Her Preaching from Home will open the door to a world previously unknown to most North Americans.

Author Bio

Gracia Grindal is professor of rhetoric at Luther Seminary,St. Paul, Minnesota, and is herself a recognized hymnwriter, poet, and translator.

Editorial Reviews

"A remarkable book. . . . Teaches us much about the role of women in the historical development of Scandinavian hymnody and about the importance of poetry in the history of hymn writing."
— Mary Hull Mohr
Luther College, Decorah, Iowa
