by: Glen V Wiberg
This volume collects Rev. Glen V. Wiberg’s Pietisten columns together, revised and updated, and pairs each essay with the sheet music for the hymn discussed in the text.
"Glen Wiberg has written a book, several years in the making, about lovely hymns and stories. One of its author’s favorite adjectives in describing that which grasps and holds a person’s imagination and affection, one’s mind and heart, may be said as well of Singing the Story—it is a “lovely” book. […] The book recounts stories with personal remembrances and insights of thirty-seven hymns and spiritual songs, with words and music of each printed, to proclaim “The Story” of the gospel and grace of God in Christ. As one who has reviewed dozens of books, this is the first that I have alternately read (words) and sung (music) out loud. What a delightful and edifying experience!" -Phil Anderson professor of Church History NPTS
