Then Sings My Soul, book 3
Then Sings My Soul book three by Robert J. Morgan is the final book in the hymn trilogy. Having not read the previous two, I cannot compare this one to the former two. For the most part, the book can stand alone (outside of the occasional comment to look for the rest of the story in one of the other two) and is a excellent weekend read. I didn't think it would be a good book to read through, but I found I was wrong, since it starts out as an overview of the history of hymns, going from Biblical hymns through Contemporary Christian.
From there, the author goes through some of the history of different hymns through the ages. As a pianist, I like that the music to the hymns is included with the background on it. It was nice to not have to go find a hymnal and look up a hymn.:D
There is also six stories that the author considers his favorites, which I enjoyed immensely.
I think this book is perfect for pretty much any bookcase! It would be helpful for musicians, members, and the general public who would like to have a place to go for background on well loved hymns.
