Tapping a wellspring of comfort, inspiration, and renewal, Gloria Jean Pinkney has gathered twenty-two African-American spirituals and reverential songs. She's carefully chosen a psalm for each to illuminate its meaning.
Soaring artwork by her husband, Jerry, and their sons, Brian Pinkney and Myles C. Pinkney, graces these pages. Expressing themselves in three distinct styles, these award-winning artists draw on a shared heritage to create images that meld beautifully. Including notes on music by daughter, Troy, and Gloria Jean Pinkney's moving tribute to the importance of spirited music in their lives, this is a book families will treasure. It evokes a universal feeling of harmony, with time-honored songs, psalms, and wondrous art to stir the heart.
Your whole family is invited to join in as Gloria sings the twenty-two selections chosen for this book on the accompanying CD. Gloria Jean Pinkney grew up with the tradition of churchgoing, but she was a reluctant soloist until the Lord and His Redeemer strengthened her confidence. Her most recent publication is a book about the Holy Spirit, In the Forest of Your Remembrance.
