The Sacrifice of Praise, Stories Behind the Greatest Praise and Worship Songs of All Time
<![if !supportEmptyParas]> <![endif]>
"His Name Is Wonderful," "God Will Make a Way," "Shine Jesus Shine," and "Because He Lives" are songs we have heard and sung over and over again in worship services at church or in our personal devotion time with the Lord. The music is moving and the words are powerful. The stories behind these songs and forty-six others are told in Lindsay Terry's book, The Sacrifice of Praise.
The inspiration for "His Name Is Wonderful" came to Audrey Mieir during the Christmas program at her church one year in Duarte, Calif. "God Will Make a Way" was written when a heart-breaking tragedy struck Don Moen's family. "Shine Jesus Shine" was penned by Graham Kendrick from his home in London, England, and today is sung by Christians around the world. Bill and Gloria Gaither were struggling with difficult questions and situations when the Lord gave Gloria the words to "Because He Lives."
If you want to know the stories behind "Amazing Grace," "Sweet, Sweet Spirit," "Lord, I Lift Your Name on High," "All Hail King Jesus," and "The Blood Will Never Lose Its Power," to name a few, you need to read this book. It will enhance your worship and bless your heart.
