3.0 out of 5 stars Fairly interesting - but 21 July 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Fairly interesting - but maybe a little scant. OK for dipping into to look something up on a basic level - but not much depth - but you do get 600.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Complete Book of Hymns 30 April 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Hard to navigate - can't select a hymn from the index and go instantly to it. So the only way to navigate is by the chapters that have been set ie Children's hymns, Christmas and then it's a surprise as you turn a page as you don't know which hymn is coming up next. Rather disappointing that search from index does not work or is not possible as the book is £8.23!!!!!!!!!!!!! I will keep it but would have thought twice beforehand if I'd know search is difficult.

A very good anthology of hymns and praise songs with short and insightful stories behind the authors.
Great reference book, and indiespensible for the church and hymn enthusiast.
