101 Hymn Stories by Kenneth Osbeck

101 Hymn Stories 101 Hymn Stories by Kenneth Osbeck

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

We have all sung the great hymns of our faith such as Amazing Grace, A Mighty Fortress, Rock Of Ages, and Fairest Lord Jesus, and have come to cherish them and their impact on our lives. Yet, often we do not know the story behind the hymns and how God worked to bring these songs to us.

This collection of 101 stories behind the hymns of our faith is a wonderful source of encouragement and inspiration as well as a wonderful reminder of the sacrifices made by many a man, woman, family, for the sake of the Gospel. While meant for adults primarily, this book on audio would be a great resource for parents to use with their children. In the day where hymns seem out of date to the younger generations, these stories will revive one's appreciation for these old songs.

The audio version is a wonderful mix of story, lyrics, and music to make it a well rounded presentation.
