Dec. 5, 2006 – SPOKANE, WA – (December 5, 2006) – John Newton, author of the well known hymn Amazing Grace, once said: “I am, in myself, incapable of standing a single hour without continual fresh supplies of strength and grace from the fountain-head.” In this devotional eBook, Kenneth Osbeck encourages Christians to seek this same fresh supply day-by-day, hour-by-hour, by filling their hearts with the trustworthy word of God and with the encouragement and refreshment found in the church hymnal.
The eBook devotional AMAZING GRACE beautifully blends these two sources of supply into convenient daily reading portions, one for every day of the year. Each day begins with several scripture meditations and proceeds with an encouraging word drawn from some of history’s greatest hymns and from the stories about their authors. The hymns are arranged according to themes, such as God’s Love to Man, Security, Peace, Joy, Comfort, Christ’s Resurrection, Praise, and many more. Songs for particular occasions, such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, and Independence Day are appropriately located. There is a helpful index to use in finding Hymns, scripture references, and hymn writers.
