The latest in a series of books related to the stories behind our favorite hymns, THEN SINGS MY SOUL: SPECIAL EDITION, is every bit as enjoyable as his previous books. Robert J. Morgan (Then Sings My Soul series, Red Sea Rules) is a favorite author of mine, so I knew I was in for a treat when I chose this book. This is not a book to just sit and read, but one that you may slowly savor.
This collection of stories about 150 Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving, and All-time favorite hymns would be an excellent gift for the book lover who is also interested in music, history, or trivia. Considering that I love all three...plus books...you can be sure this is one I will often grab on those days when you just want to wrap up with a blanket, a warm beverage, and the chance to let your imagination run. This is not simply a recitation of boring facts and dates, but a satisfying glimpse into the songs that are the background of our lives.Visualizing the lives of the people, or the events that triggered the emotions expressed in these beloved hymns gives me a greater appreciation of them. Many songs I have known all of my life, but never knew the story behind are included. Now I have an even greater appreciation for these beloved hymns.
