Book Overview

From the beginning of Christianity, worshipers have expressed and celebrated their faith through song.

Be Still, My Soul is a collection of 175 of the most popular hymns and the stories behind them. Many hymns were the result of incredible life experiences--from the heart cry of a repentant slave trader to the renewed hope of a survivor of attempted suicide. In this devotional you'll discover the stories behind the songs you sing, and you will experience the passion and joy contained in these melodies.

In addition to the hymn stories, Be Still, My Soul includes

  • musical scores and lyrics,
  • in-depth biographies of twelve hymn writers, singers, and composers,
  • and much more.
Whether you are new to hymns or have cherished them for a long time, you'll enjoy this revealing book on the stories behind some of the hymns sung every day in worship.

   Be Still My Soul
Originally, I complained that the book received some faded unreadable pages towards the end of the book, and the bookseller sent me a replacement. The replacement was only marginally an improvement - many pages still faded, but I could read them just in very good light. In addition, the edge of both books was not guillotined, making the book very tatty. I surmise that the bookseller never examines his books on the shelves! After complaining, I gave up! The subject matter and authorship of the book was excellent and inspirational - I recommend it!

   Great resource
This author has written a very handy book and I have already used it in preparation for a Vespers service in our church. Unlike another author who has written several books on this theme, Randy Peterson included biographical information about the authors, a very helpful addition to the book!

   I really enjoy this book
I really enjoy this book ''. I love the history of the song, the verses to read each day and the words to the song. That is nice, so I can look it on YouTube to hear it and know that I have the right song. I will buy more to give my teacher aides at school.
