Kenneth Osbeck’s 101 More Hymn Stories


TheWord’s 101 More Hymn Stories module by Kenneth Osbeck is a devotional classic. Those considering themselves “Old School” conservative Christians will thoroughly enjoy reading through this text - and it’s so easy to do in theWord.


I should note that the “Great Resource for Everyone” rating is basically the top rating I can give for a book like this. To me, Osbeck’s books are some of the finest devotional writings of the twentieth century.


The module is simple, intuitive, and easy to read. Very nicely designed, Costas!


Every chapter includes a graphic of the hymn as seen in a hymnal and bibliographic information on author and composer. Most chapters include some technical information on the hymn, but it isn’t distracting in the least. Many chapters also include short anecdotes or quotations that go along with the topic of the hymn. For illustrative purposes, these are very worthwhile.


The screenshot emphasizes the general layout of the module. Notice that the 101 Hymn Stories are sorted alphabetically by hymn. So, you can quickly find the hymn story you’re looking for. Musicians will find a little bit of extra information at the top of each entry (some entries have more than others); but non-musicians will not be distracted by this information at all.


The entire file is only about 10 Mb, so it is still very responsive in theWord - no “scroll lag” at all.


Kenneth Osbeck’s 101 More Hymn Stories for TheWord is only $12.95. And for this price, you can copy and print them in your preaching/teaching notes...!
