I received a physical copy of this book as part of the Tyndale Blog Network in exchange for an honest review. This in no way influenced my review.

I have not read about all of the hymns that are in this book. I have just read some every now and then. For each hymn, there is a description about why the author of the hymn wrote it. This is next to the music for the hymn. The layout of this book is wonderful. It has an index and it is easy to look up your favorite hymns (or the less well known ones).

It is a fun book to look through and to discover more about hymns. I was so inspired by what God has shown to the authors of these hymns and what God has done for these people. I would recommend this book to any Christian seeking to know more about God. ( )
