A great resource as well as a congregational book of worship. This comprehensive compilation by Fred Bock employed the assistance and recommendations of over 40 pastors, musicians and laymen, and cooperation by scores of authors and publishers. It was also the first-time use of the songs "He Touched Me," "The Lord's Prayer" and "It Is No Secret," now considered hymn standards. Congregational readings contain scripture passages selected from among 20 respected Bible versions and appropriate inspirational writings by Billy Graham, C.S. Lewis, Peter Marshall, Charles Allen and Oswald Chambers, among others. Over 50 optional last-verse harmonizations or descants add to the beauty of these arrangements. This hymnal serves as a complete lexicon of music for the Church today, inspirational and functional to each member of the diverse family of believers.

We've had this hymnal in our church for years and were delighted to find it was still available when we needed more. It has a good mix of traditional hymns and praise songs with readings and repsonsive readings. We recommend this hymnal for more traditional services.

It was great finding "Hymns for the Family of God" in midnight blue! Trying to replace tattered hymnals in the same or similar color has been very challenging, but Christianbook.com was able to deliver! Thank you - you're great!

I liked this hymnal so much that I lent it to a friend of mine. She has now ordered it. We plan to use it for organ & piano duets as postlude to services where we volunteer at Lexington Retirement Home in our town.
