Overview

Do you ever catch yourself singing a song in church without paying attention to the words? Open Your Hymnal is a collection of thirty devotions that transport the wisdom of classic hymns and gospel songs into the twenty-first century. Introduce yourself to the rich spiritual heritage that hymnals contain or gain a new perspective on songs you've sung since childhood. Whether you sing in the choir loft, pew, or in the shower, the refreshing biblical insights in this book will enhance your appreciation of the words you sing every time you open a hymnal.

From the Foreword:

"Through witty, insightful, and sometimes poignant writing, Denise draws on the richness of the doctrine and the personal nature of these hymns to encourage us in our Christian faith. Whether or not hymns are a part of your worship tradition, you will find the timeless truths expressed in these meditations a blessing and encouragement to your soul." Mark Hahn, Minister of Music,
Montgomery Evangelical Free Church, Belle Mead, NJ

Endorsements:

"As wonderful as contemporary Christian music is to me, I would miss singing the great hymns of the faith. Their words tell the gospel, provide great insight and inspiration, and lift my faith. In this book of devotions, Denise Loock skillfully reflects on some of these hymns by connecting them with Scripture and with our personal spiritual lives. The result is a unique collection of devotions that will touch your heart as you open your hymnal along with your Bible." - Kathleen Hayes, Editor, The Secret Place

"Few things are quite so moving, reassuring, and comforting as the familiar texts of inspiring hymns we have loved and sung for generations. Thank you, Denise, for rekindling these messages and shedding new light on songs so near to the hearts of people of faith!" - Dave and Cheryl Ellington, Career Worship Leaders, Covington, KY

"Denise Loock's Open Your Hymnal powerfully relates Scripture, hymns, and biblical knowledge to everyday life. Her 30 devotions are written in such a way that it creates in the reader a desire to reflect upon what has been shared and then to delve deeper. These easy-to-read insights also make the reader want to become familiar with hymns once again and be blessed by their inspired words." - Jane Carrier Allen, Minister of Worship and Bible Professor, Sneads Ferry, NC

"These devotions have poured into my soul a deep love for the God we serve, rooted in the history of biblical and religious figures throughout the ages. What a gift. Denise's style is light but penetrating. It convicts and comforts and draws my heart to the Lord." - Connie Cartisano, PhD, Stay-at-Home-Mom and Retreat Speaker, Hackettstown, NJ

"Reaching across all denominations, Denise Loock ties together beloved hymns with their scriptural backgrounds. She brings old-fashioned wording to life by adding a contemporary twist to her devotions. The reader is enlightened, not bewildered, by her inclusion of Greek roots for key words. I would recommend Open Your Hymnal to anyone who enjoys singing hymns or wants to give a treasured gift." - Cathy Smith, State Newsletter Editor for United Methodist Women, Ocean, NJ

I got this book on my Kindle Fire. I LOVE IT!!!! This is something I've been thinking of doing for our seniors group for about a year now and here it is! I hope the author will do some more books like it. Maybe using scripture songs too. I plan on buying it in book form too. Thank you Mrs. Loock for writing this book. God Bless you.
