What is the story behind our old German hymns? Who wrote them, and what is their message for us today? This book is a study of more than 200 familiar German hymns, and can be used for personal or family devotions. Part 1 is a review of hymns from the Ausbund, the world's oldest hymnal in continual use. Part 2 describes other German hymns sung by Amish and Mennonites today.
