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.
