Then Sings My Soul Special EditionI grew up in a very conservative church where we only sang hymns. I’ve always found that knowing the stories behind these songs made it much more interesting to sing them and gave me a depth, understanding, and appreciation for them. I’ve heard hymn stories used for different devotions and programs from time to time. This book is a great compilation of all of my home churches favorite songs. It definitely isn’t the kind of book you can sit down and read it just a few sittings, it took me several months to get through, reading it here and there. It would be great to have for referencing or to use in devotions or any classes at church. One of the things I found extremely interesting is the varying backgrounds and churches that many of our hymns come from. I grew up in a Baptist church and so few of the songs we sing were actually written by Baptists. I just found that rather interesting and eye opening. I love the look and feel of the special edition-it has rugged edges and thick paper, gives it such a great feel!! Call me old fashioned but that’s why I will always love a “real” book compared to one on a reader! This book makes an interesting and useful addition to any Christian’s library and I’d highly recommend it!
