Amazing Grace: 366 Inspiring Hymn Stories for Daily Devotion
April 6, 2015
Wonderful book! A dear friend loaned her copy to me, and I knew I must have a copy for myself. I have loaned my copy to another friend who has ordered a copy for herself. If Christian hymns have given you encouragement, pleasure, inspiration, and an outlet for your praise and thanks to God, then you should have a copy of this daily devotional book. This devotional book will carry you through a year of learning new hymns and singing old favorites!
Excellent for ending or beginning daily devotional

This book gives short bio of authors and conditions leading up to the writing of each hym and has the words to the hymn and then the music to the refrain or chorus, sometimes first lines, so I always have handy a hymnal so that I can figure out the entire melody. Very informative and inspirrational. Again, holds up well for being paperback, also easy to carry about.
A friend has this hymn /devotional book and during one of my visits I glanced at a few pages and fell in love with this book. If you love hymns then you'll enjoy the wonderful stories behind the inspirations or misfortunate that inspired the writer.
