Stories Behind the Songs & Hymns About Heaven by Ace Collins

Back Cover Copy

In times of doubt, fear, and loss, we turn to the songs and hymns that remind us that this world is not all there is–that what awaits us as followers of Jesus is a heavenly kingdom. Songs like “Face to Face,” “Amazing Grace,” “Heaven Came Down,” “Victory in Jesus,” and “I’ll Fly Away.” And behind every song about heaven is a story. So many were written amid circumstances of great personal pain on the part of the songwriter. And in sharing their story, we can find even more comfort in our own circumstances.

Award-winning author Ace Collins offers this collection of 30 inspiring stories that provide hope for this world and insight into the next, painting a picture of eternal life filled with joy, peace, and happy reunions. This book is perfect for those who love the stories behind the great hymns of the faith as well as anyone who has experienced loss, and pastors, hospice workers, and counselors will find it the perfect pass-along for the grieving.

My Review

Ever wonder what the story behind a song/hymn you’ve heard is? I love hearing the stories behind the ancient hymns we sing in church! A lot of times the authors have been through a lot of trials and tribulations in their lives. I couldn’t wait to dig into this book when it came. While some of the songs I had never heard of before, I enjoyed learning about each one, new and old. I believe every Christian would benefit from hearing the stories behind these songs. I fully recommend this book!
