Inclusive Hymns for Liberating Christians


With composer Larry Schultz


Book Description

Inclusive Hymns for Liberating Christians will expand the spiritual experience of any group, large or small. These hymns inspire justice and peacemaking. They empower women, men, and children of all races to become all they are created to be in the divine image. These hymns will lift the heart, invigorate the mind, and enliven the spirit. The wide variety of biblical divine names and images in this hymnbook will contribute to belief in the sacredness of all people and all creation. Peace and justice flow from this belief. These hymns draw from the prophetic, liberating tradition in Scripture. Predominant themes of the hymns are peace, justice, resurrection, abundant life, liberation, new creation, and partnership in relationships. This collection includes hymns that celebrate the seasons of the church year and other special occasions.

Refreshing Newness!

This collection is wonderful! My congregation is very diverse and have responded extremely positively to the new names and images for God, Jesus and the Spirit. The language is current and the familiar tunes to which the words are set have been well matched for an easy and attractive fit and make the introduction of a new book of hymns virtually painless and very inspiring, because we can focus on the new wonderful texts! I highly recommend it. If your folks are uncomfortable with stretching language and images of the sacred, they will probably be uncomfortable with this collection.

We sang four of the hymns from this hymnal yesterday and each one tugged at my heart. I promise you that the words of these hymns will uplift you as these words are truly inspired by the Spirit.
