Nancy Roth says, "Exploring the church's rich tradition of hymnody has been an important part of my life over the last few years. I have found myself drawn in an extraordinary way into the stories of the poets, saints, martyrs, and quite ordinary people who wrote our hymn texts. The words of a hymn draw me into God's presence, creating a quiet space for reflection and contemplation. Often I find that the texts voice my own prayer, like an alternative prayer book." Praise My Soul contains selections from Roth's previous three books of hymn meditations (see below)in a special, large-print format to make these meditations more easily accessible to all readers. Nancy Roth's love and enthusiasm for the history and poetry of hymns gives the reader a richer and more complex understanding of even the most familiar hymns, transforming the experience of song into an experience of prayer.
