Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Grow closer to God through the hymns you love to sing

The great hymns of the faith are not only meaningful songs we love to sing--they teach us about God and ourselves. They are miniature Bible studies that lead us effortlessly toward worship, testimony, exhortation, prayer, and praise. They clear our minds, soothe our nerves, verbalize our worship, summarize our faith, and sing our great Redeemer's praise.

In Near to the Heart of God, bestselling author Robert J. Morgan has gathered 366 hymns, including favorites such as "Amazing Grace" and "Rock of Ages," as well as classic, lesser-known gems such as "In the Garden" and "Teach Me to Pray." Each devotional contains an opening story about the hymn or its writer, the lyrics to the hymn, and a closing Scripture. An index of hymn titles and first lines is included so you can find your favorites easily.

Perfect for any music lover, Near to the Heart of God is a unique yearlong journey into the songbook of praise that has defined our worship for centuries.

"With pastoral sensitivity and moving insights, Robert Morgan brings readers deeper understanding of the hymns they love. These fascinating stories give context to some of the most moving songs of the ages and offer a daily dose of inspiration and encouragement."--Steven James, author of Story and A Heart Exposed

This book has shown me so many new hymns & writers about whom I had not known. It brings a wealth of historical Christian worship to the seeker. Refreshing! The hardest part is trying to share the hymns with friends & family. Some are available online; for others I was unable to find the additional stanzas mentioned in the book, or the melodies.

I downloaded this book over a year ago when it was available for my Kindle. I used it every morning as the beginning to my devotional time throughout the entire year of 2012. Mr Morgan is an amazing researcher, historian and musician who knows his stuff. This book spoke to my heart in ways I never expected, and as time passed I found myself looking forward with anticipation to the song coming next. It's a great way to begin each morning! Some of the songs are so buried in time that I didn't know them at all, but others dropped their message and notes into my heart and I hummed them all day long. I highly recommend this book for its brief (5 minutes or less) devotional thoughts and charming reminder of the hymns of my growing up years!

What an excellent devotional resource that not only is inspirational but also informative, giving historical facts concerning the background of some of the most well-known and loved hymns throughout the ages. I highly recommend this easy-to-read devotional for anyone who appreciates the timeless hymns of Christendom.

I am enjoying this book and reading it day by day. Robert Morgan has researched the lives and stories of these great hymn-writers, most of them from many years ago. Whilst there are some of the hymns I don't know and have never heard, the words are inspiring nevertheless. In addition to the lesser-know hymns there are lots of hymns that I have known since I was a child and have loved them. The stories as well as the hymns are quite inspiring and I find pleasure and inspiration in the book

I've always considered the hymns my friends. And so, I've always loved the stories behind their creation. This is a 365-day devo that blends the powerful lyrics with those stories. It introduces us to the hymnwriters and to the times in which they lived. I'm enjoying this immensely. It doesn't replace my personal quiet time in the Word, but it certainly does enhance it.

One hymn's lyrics are featured every day, along with a brief history of the author and circumstances of writing it. There's also a Bible verse - most hymns are based on Bible verses. It's lyrics only, no music, however, and some hymns are unfamiliar to me.
