This book is about very popular hymns and a brief history on how the hymn came to be. Each hymn is displayed in the book and the following page gives a brief history of the song. By understanding how the hymn came to be, the reader can appreciate and have a better appreciation of the hymns sung in many churches each Sunday.
I really enjoyed this book. I found the history to be short but informative. I also appreciated having the song right next to the story of the song's origin. I found myself singing several of the hymns and having a deeper love for each song. This book would be a great gift to the music-lover in your family.
