TrenchMommyUSAAge: 25-34Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5February 16, 2010TrenchMommyUSAAge: 25-34Gender: femaleWe have all sung the great hymns of our faith such as Amazing Grace, A Mighty Fortress, Rock Of Ages, and Fairest Lord Jesus, and have come to cherish them and their impact on our lives. Yet, often we do not know the story behind the hymns and how God worked to bring these songs to us. This collection of 101 stories behind the hymns of our faith is a wonderful source of encouragement and inspiration as well as a wonderful reminder of the sacrifices made by many a man, woman, family, for the sake of the Gospel. While meant for adults primarily, this book on audio would be a great resource for parents to use with their children. In the day where hymns seem out of date to the younger generations, these stories will revive one's appreciation for these old songs. The audio version is a wonderful mix of story, lyrics, and music to make it a well rounded presentation. * * * * * This review copy was provided courtesy of Oasis Audio.
Jessa Williams4 Stars Out Of 5May 28, 2009Jessa WilliamsThis is a great resource/devotional. Many times I would finish my own personal devotion time with the Lord, and then pick up this book and read about the next hymn. In reading the hymn that followed along with the story of the author/composer and the story behind the hymn, it would confirm something the Lord just spoke to me in devotions. This book helps to exemplify the life found in the hymns. It exemplifies how they were written by broken, devoted and surrendered vessels to the Lord and they were written in times that reflect sorrow, pain, joy and more. I only wish there was a CD to accompany the book, as often I do not know the tune of the hymn and I want to break into a worship with the Lord with that hymn. I recommend this book for anyone interested in learning more about the stories behind the hymns. Great resource!
Carla5 Stars Out Of 5January 2, 2009CarlaI am looking forward to using this book in my personal devotions. There are so many rich doctrines in the classic hymns; and reading stories behind the songs only enhances the meaning of them all the more. Thanks. I may need to buy the next hymn history book as well.
