Just as every song has a story behind it, so does every songwriter. Millions of believers know the worship songs of Lynn DeShazo┐most notably, her famous ┐More Precious Than Silver.┐ But what they probably don┐t know is that this much-loved classic was written from the ashes of a fasting gone wrong. For years, the church has connected the great hymns and their composers with the stories behind them. Now, in More Precious Than Silver: The God-Stories Behind the Songs of Lynn DeShazo, the prolific songwriter offers the stories behind some of modern worship┐s most-sung and best-recognized music. DeShazo┐s rich, often transparent narrative weaves her songs, her life, and the healing love of the One who has borne her along an amazing melodic journey. And in the process, More Precious Than Silver invites readers to reflect on their own journey with Christ┐and be moved to a deeper place of worship.
