Be Still My Soul by Randy Petersen

Although I currently attend a more contemporary church, growing up we sang many of the hymns on Sunday mornings that are featured in "Be Still My Soul" by Randy Peterson.  What a wonderful walk down memory lane!

This book not only features the story of 175 great hymns, but also the hymn itself including words and music.  That in itself is a great treasure!  In addition, there are short biographies on select hymn-writers and composers which add to the appreciation of these old songs.

I really enjoyed this book because of the familiarity of those wonderful old hymns.  I don't think, though, that most who do not share that background or that currently attend a church that incorporates these songs into their service, would have the same appreciation.  But, I could be wrong!

Disclosure of Material Connection: I was provided a free copy of this book by Tyndale House Publishers in exchange for my honest opinion.
