Book Review: Then Sings My Soul (Special Edition)

Posted by Kero at Monday, February 07, 2011
I finished reading the book by Robert Morgan, pastor of Donelson Fellowship in Nashville. I related some of the stories to my Husband and curious to know more, it is now his bedside book.

Amazon Price: $13.59 / 310 Pages  (Deckle Edge)

Then Sings My Soul Special Edition will be on the list of my favorite books for a long time to come. The author explored the stories behind some of the best loved hymns including that of Easter and Christmas. Reading through, it is amazing how regular people became composers and musicians through Divine Intervention.Some stories deeply moved me like the tragic yet inspiring story behind the song What A Fried We Have in Jesus.

The book includes 150 hymns. After each, the story for the inspiration appears on the opposite page. Though there are plenty of songs that I am not familiar about, I had a lovely time learning about Good King Wenceslas and  reading through There Shall Be Shower Of Blessings. The stories are short enough to hold your attention. Soon, you'll find humming the songs to yourself. And singing Go Tell It On The Mountain will reduce you to tears. I mean, you will all be singing these hymns in a different manner knowing the sad, glorious, triumphant, ironic stories behind them.

Then Sings My Soul is a book that you would want to share with anybody, anytime of the year. It is on paperback with deckle edges which makes it more appealing as collectible. I am planning to buy for family and relatives as Easter gifts. I know that like me, they will treasure owning such a wonderful book that you can read again and again.
