♫ Then Sings My Soul -150 of the World’s Greatest Hymn Stories


Then Sings My Soul -150 of the World’s Greatest Hymn Stories By Robert J. Morgan

Robert J. Morgan’s lifelong interest in hymns led him to discover the richness of stories behind many of the best-loved hymns. He features 150 of some of the greatest Christian hymns and songs, complete with music and lyrics plus a one-page background of each piece. His goal is to keep these traditional hymns vital and meaningful to all generations.

With more than 1,000,000 copies sold, I’d say it’s working.

These devotional-style stories highlight the people whose faith led them to write these wonderful hymns and the people whose faith was affected by reading, hearing, and singing the songs. These are a few snippets from the book that are historically interesting and inspirational to read.

Father Joseph Mohr wrote “Silent Night” due to the fact that the church organ was broken and something was needed for the Christmas Eve presentation in 1818.

Jesus Loves Me was written by Anna Warner for a book, Say and Seal which became a best seller, second only to Uncle Tom’s Cabin. Miss Warner and her sister conducted Bible classes for cadets at West Point for forty years and were buried with full military honors. They are the only civilians buried in this cemetery at West point.

The book features a special softcover, French flap cover design, ivory paper with brown ink and a ragged-edge paper, giving it a classic feel. It’s a special book to share with family and friends.

Bibles Kids and Teens Will LOVE!

Happy Spring Friends!

The Spring season is full of transformation as the weather transitions from winter and Mother Nature shows her beauty and bounty.  We spring into action with outdoor exercise and spring-cleaning.  And as our young ones take Jesus into their hearts, it is time for Bible stories and Bible study.

Recently one of our customers bought The Action Bible for her son as a baptismal present.  She especially wanted a hardcover copy since he is “rough” on his books.  We are recommending a few “hardcover” Bibles that are ideal for children/teens.  They make excellent communion and baptism gifts and hold up to child handling.

Major Themes of the Bible by Foster H. Shannon (paperback)

The nineteen chapters of this book derive from an inductive study of the Bible to determine what the Bible itself sets forth as of most importance. This is ideal for training lay people and for study groups. An excellent resource for a sermon or teaching series. The quest of this book is for what is central and vital. To set forth those doctrines, truths, and commands that are strongly emphasized in the entirety of the Bible.
