Endorsement

The committee likes The Christian Life Hymnal for the following reasons: As already noted, it has an excellent selection of hymns, drawing upon the best from our evangelical and congregational heritage.
It has an excellent selection of verses for the hymns it includes.
It uses footnotes to explain some of the words and phrases used in certain older hymns.
The newer hymns it does choose to include are generally of a very good quality. It has an excellent set of indexes.
It has a very nice feel in the hands—it is not too large or heavy.
Music Committee, First Congregational Church, Middleboro, Massachusetts

Praise for the Christian Life Hymnal

From the first "Holy, Holy, Holy" to the last "Amen," The Christian Life Hymnal lifts our hearts to worship the Lord. Everything we love to sing to God is here, from the traditional hymns of the Church to our favorite choruses. From Christmas to Easter, from Thanksgiving to the Fourth of July, from adoration to confession, from evangelism to renewal, this book contains hymns that trace every step of the heart's spiritual journey. The Christian Life Hymnal is a treasure!
-Claire Cloninger, Christian Songwriter, Author, Speaker

from Hymnwiki.og

This is a hymnal edited by Eric Wyse, a Tennessee church musician employed by an Anglican church, and published by Hendrickson Publishers, Inc. in 2006. It is not denominational in focus.
It contains 641 numbered items, of which the first 607 are hymns or songs and the remainder are service music. The collection features fewer recent hymns and fewer one-stanza "Praise songs" than recent hymnals from "competing" non-denominational hymnal publishers like Word Music, Inc. and Hope Publishing Company. Such material is not completely lacking, but is much less predominant here.
The selection includes many late-nineteenth century gospel hymns that have been pushed out of competing hymnals by the very newer hymns that are here omitted. Examples might include O Boundless Salvation by the founder of the Salvation Army, William Booth; Beulah Land by Edgar Page Stites; Master, the Tempest Is Raging by Mary Ann Baker; and Only Believe by Paul Rader.
Notable too is the tendency to include more stanzas of many hymns than are included in other recent non-denominational and evangelical hymnals, for example, comparing selected hymns in the Christian Life Hymnal (CLH) with Word's Hymnal for Worship & Celebration (HWC), we find that the former has six stanzas of All Creatures of Our God and King to HWC's four; Crown Him with Many Crowns is seven versus four; etc., with CLH having more stanzas almost five times more often than HWC does. The publisher's claim that they have "all the verses" is however an exaggeration; for example, while their five verses of How Firm a Foundation outnumber HWC's four, CLH is still missing two (the second and sixth) of the complete seven found in the 1985 LDS Hymnal.
Another interesting feature is that more hymns than usual are set to two or even three tunes. For example, Love Divine, All Loves Excelling is set to Beecher, Hyfrydol and Blaenwern, where most hymnals give only one tune; Amazing Grace is set not only to the ubiquitous New Britain but also to Land of Rest.
This hymnal has a larger Christmas section than most, with "Advent", "Birth" and "Epiphany" encompassing 73 songs. The indexes, too, are more copious than in many hymnals, with a Scriptural Allusion Index, a Hymn Tune Index, a Metrical Tune Index, an index of Authors Composers, and Sources, a Church Year Index, a Topical Index, and an index of Hymn Titles and First Lines with Key.
All in all, The Christian Life Hymnal is one of the most noteworthy hymnals to appear in the new millennium.

Author Endorsement

For centuries, the church has relied on hymns as a source of doctrinal instruction. In recent years, new songs of praise have filled our churches, giving voice to hearts yearning to express worship. The Christian Life Hymnal gathers all of these musical expressions of redemption and faith together in a new volume for today's church.

Christian Life Hymnal- Review

Our congregation, Christ Church Anglican of Wakulla, Florida, was begun in August 2008. Our members come from a variety of denominational backgrounds, so our Worship Committee thought The Christian Life Hymnal would be a good choice for us. Using this hymnal has really energized our worship services! No matter our age or background, whether we are traditionalists or love the more contemporary praise classics – everyone can find something to love in this hymnal. The large print makes the hymns easy to read, and the lower keys make them easy to sing. The reasonable price has allowed many of our members to purchase their own copy for use at home, and the indexes make liturgical services easy to plan, with regard to seasons or scripture references. The Christian Life Hymnal has certainly been the right choice for us. We recommend it highly!

My wife, Marjorie and I are privileged to host "Old Fashioned Hymn Sings" across the country and in most of the major Denominations. This has given us the opportunity to use a wide variety of Hymnals from most the publishers in America. However, in Branson, MO, we were privileged to use "The Christian Life Hymnal" and found there to be an amazing variety of Hymns from which to select our Hymn Sing program. We like to include traditional Hymns such as "Fairest Lord Jesus", Gospel Songs like "Standing On The Promises", Southern Gospel Songs such as "If We Never Meet Again". I was pleased to find all of them included in one Hymnal. AND in keys that were so singable! Never has there been a great response to one Hymnal as we received when we used "The Christian Life Hymnal." I recommend it very highly!

Author Endorsement

In our exuberance over many of today’s most powerful contemporary worship songs, we are often raising up a generation of believers who may be completely unaware of the profound expressions of faith found in the classic hymns of the past. These hymns have stood the test of centuries, yet are still as fresh with meaning as the day they were written. The Christian Life Hymnal recaptures for us hymns from every major denominational expression. My prayer is that it will be well received and regularly used.
Don Finto, Author, Speaker, Pastor Emeritus – Belmont Church, Nashville, TN

    Contemporary song list. Well made. Scripture with each song. Credits for Words & Music. Indexes of Scriptural Allusions, Tune Names, Authors/Composers/Sources, Topical Index of Hymns, Hymn Titles & First Lines with key, Metrical Tune Index. Haven't used Church Year Index yet, but can see that it could be valuable.

    We were looking for a hymnbook/songbook to use as part of our family devotions. We did not want one full of only contemporary emotional choruses, but we also did not want to sing only the great hymns and neglect some of the newer and also wonderful hymns and choruses. We did not want a hymnbook/songbook full of modern updates, spiritual correctness, and one full of trying to please everyone while changing doctrine and neglecting the Bible truths. This book is great. While a few songs were slightly changed in a word or two, it is much better than many of the newer songbooks. I do wish there were more than two verses of the Star-Spangled Banner, though, as most Americans seem to only know the first verse. I am glad we purchased this book, and hope to use it for many, many years.

    This hymnal is excellent for my Sunday School class and should be for others. Most of the hymns are familiar which is important with my SS members being in their late 70's to their early 90's. We're the youngest in the class being just over 60. I don't know if your company sends just something in the mail to churches, but that should be a great source for many orders just for the hymnals. I don't know about the catalog that you sent. I will be bringing this up at our class Sunday and hopefully, they will vote to buy them.

    This hymnal is wonderful. It has transformed my devotional time at home. I play the piano and so I appreciate how this book stays open without having to "crack" the binding. The songs are indexed in a number of ways that make them easy to find, whether you have a particular hymn in mind, or whether you're looking for a hymn that fits a particular verse in the Scriptures, or topic, or time of year in the Church calendar. I use this hymnal everyday.

Author/Artist Review

Author: Eric Wyse
Located in: Brentwood, TN
Submitted: May 14, 2009

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I am the Editor of The Christian Life Hymnal. I have been the Director of Music at my church, St. Bartholomew's Church in Nashville, Tennessee, since 19945. In addition, I am a hymn writer ("Wonderful, Merciful Savior"), record producer (Handel's Messiah/John Rutter/Cambridge SIngers/Royal Philharmonic Orchestra), and recording artist ("Reflections" piano series for CBD). I began studying piano at the age of 5, and playing piano for church in the 7th grade. I studied Church Music, piano and organ at Cedarville University (Ohio), and have been involved in Christian music in Nashville since 1979. Several hymns and worship songs I have written have been included in other hymnals, including "The Baptist Hymnal" (2008); "Hymns for a Pilgrim People - Congregational Hymnal" (2007); "The American Worship Collection (2000); and "Songs for Praise & Worship" (1992)

    What was your motivation behind this project?  The goal of our entire editorial team was the we preserve the great heritage of classic hymns and gospel songs for the next generation, while we also present in hymn style (4-part harmony) what we trust are the best new worship songs that are congregationally friendly and will endure for many generations. Thus, in addition to many standard hymns, we included new worship songs like "Majesty", "He Is Exalted", "in Christ Alone", "As the Deer", "How Deep the Father's Love For Us", and many more.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  I hope this hymnal will aid churches in singing together the hymns, gospel songs, and new worship songs that offer praise to God, the encourage the body of Christ, that teach the truths of the gospel (theology) and that proclaim to the world the Good News of the gospel. This is a non-denominational hymnal that is geared for every Christian tradition, across generations.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  Over the 3 years it took to create this hymnal, I was continually reminded of the wealth of truth, expressed in the hymns, and that every generation has found new ways to express the same truth - and pass it down to the next generation.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  There are many hymnologists, hymn writers and authors who have helped shape my belief in church music and specifically hymns, including Donald Hustad (editor of the hymnal of my youth "The Service Hymnal"), Fred Bock (who edited "Hymns for the Family of God" in 1976, and who I heard present that hymnal at Bill Gaither's Praise Gathering that year); Kurt Kaiser, a dear friend from my days at Word Records (composer of "O How He Loves You and Me" that we included in this hymnal); Keith Getty, composer of "In Christ Alone" and the champion of modern hymn writing; as well as Anne Ortlund for her timely book in the 1970's "Up with Worship"; the late Dr. Robert E. Webber, (author of numerous books on ancient-future worship, editor of "The Complete Library of Christian Worship", and founder of The Institute for Worship Studies); my friend Darrell Harris (who has 3 compositions in the hymnal); my pastor, who was my theological sounding board on several occasions during the editorial process, The Rev. Dr. Jerry Smith; and Dawn Rodgers, my wife, and writing partner on many worship songs and hymns (including "Wonderful, Merciful Savior" found in the hymnal).

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  In addition to the pew edition in 4 colors, the Accompanist edition is also available. It includes guitar chords for every hymn, in a 5 hole binder, a larger format, and a musical supplement that includes modulations and guitar chord directory
