A hymnal is a vital resource to a church. It teaches every congregant about the faith and what your church believes. This collection offers a useful guide to the new Glory to God hymnal. For those who have already adopted Glory to God, this book will inform congregants all about their new resource. For those still deciding, it provides the information needed to make that determination. Ten essays explore why a new hymnal was produced; the challenges of creating a new hymnal; the theology, liturgy, language, and musical genres in Glory to God; and ideas for introducing Glory to God to your church. Two appendices offer fifteen essential facts about Glory to God and suggestions for what to do with old hymnals replaced by Glory to God.
