Inspiring Stories of 40+ of the most popular and well known Christian hymns...

Have you ever wondered about the circumstances and origin stories for the hymns Amazing Grace, Nearer My God to Thee, Abide With Me, Battle Hymn of the Republic, Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing, America the Beautiful and many others?

We spent thousands of hours searching for the stories around the composers and authors of the hymns and were blown away with what we found.  
Many favorite Christian hymns and their authors have incredible stories that will make you listen to and sing these songs in an entirely different way. Our team spent thousands of hours researching and finding the most inspiring stories that will uplift those who take time to read or listen.

Hymns are a form of worship and prayer that are capable of expressing what mere words alone cannot. 

Moreover, sacred music has an almost incalculable power to soften hearts, 
invite the Spirit, teach truth, and bind us together in unity. 

Behind each hymn is an author, a composer, and a story. (Scroll down to see samples from the book)
 It is often out the depths of our own experiences that He calls us to minister to others, teach, write, and compose music that touches others. We learned again and again while doing research for this book that the personal experiences of the authors and composers influenced the words and music they wrote. 

Each hymn and its message becomes so much more meaningful when you come to know the author and composer and the story that led to the writing of the song.

These stories are true and validated from as many sources as we could acquire. There is always the challenge of mortal memory, inaccurate interpretations, and faulty documents, but we have done the best we could to cross-reference and check the facts.

 It is our hope and prayer that this book and the included stories will strengthen and affirm your faith and that of others, that it will draw you closer to the Almighty, and cause you to sing with greater intent, more power, hope, and joy.
