Details: Often the story behind a song is as transforming, intriguing and richly meaningful as the song itself. Worship Leader magazine, the origin of and impetus for telling these stories has a long history of digging deeper into the history of songs. Featured are some of the most sung and deeply felt songs of the past 20 years, as well as classics such as "Because He Lives" and "Majesty."The Song Story series wouldn’t be complete without songs from the Vineyard that so profoundly influenced worship as we know it today as well as songs from Nathan and Christy Nockels, Chris Tomlin, both Paul and Rita Baloche, Don Moen, Lenny LeBlanc, Tommy Walker, Darlene Zschech, Dennis Jernigan, among many, many others. The majority of these songs are still among the most sung worship songs in the Church worldwide. If you are a songwriter, these are songs to study and contemplate. They bring joy to God’s heart and bless his people. They renew and refresh because their foundation is “spirit” and “truth.”
Song Stories, Vol. 2 is a most inspiring and instructional book. Far more than a collection of stories about worship songs, this is a primer on the genesis and power of sung prayer. It focuses our attention where it belongs: on God. He is not only the audience, but the source of songs that transform. And miraculously, often when speaking his comfort, counsel, wisdom, love, encouragement, to a particular worshiper through a song—birthed in desperation, celebration, or awe—Our father ends up speaking to countless thousands and hundreds of thousands with the same anointed words.
