Description

"This is a hymnal edited by Eric Wyse, a Tennessee church musician employed by an Anglican church, and published by Hendrickson Publishers, Inc. in 2006. It is not denominational in focus.
"It contains 641 numbered items, of which the first 607 are hymns or songs and the remainder are service music. The collection features fewer recent hymns and fewer one-stanza "Praise songs" than recent hymnals from "competing" non-denominational hymnal publishers like Word Music, Inc. and Hope Publishing Company. Such material is not completely lacking, but is much less predominant here.
"The selection includes many late-nineteenth century gospel hymns that have been pushed out of competing hymnals by the very newer hymns that are here omitted. Examples might include O Boundless Salvation by the founder of the Salvation Army, William Booth; Beulah Land by Edgar Page Stites; Master, the Tempest Is Raging by Mary Ann Baker; and Only Believe by Paul Rader.
"Notable too is the tendency to include more stanzas of many hymns than are included in other recent non-denominational and evangelical hymnals, for example, comparing selected hymns in the Christian Life Hymnal (CLH) with Word's Hymnal for Worship & Celebration (HWC), we find that the former has six stanzas of All Creatures of Our God and King to HWC's four; Crown Him with Many Crowns is seven versus four; etc., with CLH having more stanzas almost five times more often than HWC does.
"Another interesting feature is that more hymns than usual are set to two or even three tunes. For example, Love Divine, All Loves Excelling is set to Beecher, Hyfrydol and Blaenwern, where most hymnals give only one tune; Amazing Grace is set not only to the ubiquitous New Britain but also to Land of Rest.
"This hymnal has a larger Christmas section than most, with "Advent," "Birth" and "Epiphany" encompassing 73 songs. The indexes, too, are more copious than in many hymnals, with a Scriptural Allusion Index, a Hymn Tune Index, a Metrical Tune Index, an index of Authors Composers, and Sources, a Church Year Index, a Topical Index, and an index of Hymn Titles and First Lines with Key.
"All in all, The Christian Life Hymnal is one of the most noteworthy hymnals to appear in the new millennium." --HymnWiki.org
