I received this book for free in exchange for my honest review from tyndale publishers.
This book is so special. I will begin this review by saying that I hold it very dear to my heart and that I urge you to pick up a copy because it will change the way you hear the hymns that many of us have grown up with for generations. Petersen brings an open window to peer inside the lives and emotions that created these songs.
There are songs of repentance and hope. When you feel the tattered page sides, you get this feeling of traveling the same journeys. It encourages in the most effortless way.
Many of the stories behind these 175 hymns are quite compelling and I will leave it at that because I think Petersen puts it together much better than I could.
I love to share opinions and here you can find opinions on the books I'm reading!
