Have you ever wondered how some of the old traditional hymns came to be??? Well, then this book would be a wonderful place for you to start. I couldn't believe all the good 'ol hymns that Mr. Morgan decided to put in this book. I was skeptical at first thinking it would be these praise & worship songs that repeat the same words fifty million times. No meat and message to them at all in my opinion. This book is a special edition in that it is made up of many holiday songs. I was also surprised to see this. There are about 9 Thanksgiving song, about twice as many Easter and three times as many Christmas. You'll find some patriotic songs in the book too. There are just some old-time favorites in there too.
This book is made into a devotional type. In that there is a scripture with each song history. On the page opposite the song history is the music score to the song. The page edges are the rough, scrapbook type. I just think this book was very well done. I give it two thumbs up only because that's all the thumbs I have. I will defiantly be on the look out for more of Morgan's hymn story books.
