In Preaching from Home: The Stories of Eight Lutheran Hymn Writers, poet and scholar Gracia Grindal provides an in-depth glimpse into the life and work of one German and six Scandinavian women who, over the course of three centuries, participated in a vibrant tradition of Lutheran hymnwriting by women that has until now been largely inaccessible to English-speaking readers.
Grindal here provides biographical accounts of each woman's life, piety, and times and offers sparkling new English-language versions of each writer's most beloved hymns. She also recounts her own inspiring journey as a Lutheran woman hymnwriter.
