Item Description...
What road did each president take to the White House? What were his most significant accomplishments and failures? What role did music and Christian hymns play in his administration? One hymn has been chosen for each president, along with full details on its origins and meaning. 356 pages, hardcover with CD. Mercer University.

Publishers Description
The most comprehensive coverage ever written of the influence of hymns on the lives and administrations of America's presidents. Each chapter begins with a concise presentation of each president's path to the White House and his accomplishments and failures as president, then how each president regarded music, whether or not he was musical, and music in the White House during each president's administration. These hymns may be related to developments in the life of the president including his spiritual journey, major decisions he had to make as president, or even his selection of the inaugural Scripture. The book covers a panorama of hymnody from 1614 to the 1980s.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
America, God shed His grace on thee!  Apr 3, 2010
Dr. Spann is a meticulous, heartfelt man of music honoring the Father and our country. He's gone to great lengths in detailed study to share what the Presidents of the USA have appreciated in hymns and spiritual songs. Music moves man like few other mediums, not exempting the powerful leaders of America. Seeking to connect our identity in history with the songs engrained in our religious faiths, Spann lays out a wealth of research that reinforces the love for our God. Having been an actual student of the author's demeanor of love, grace, and instruction I am honored to highly recommend this unique work.
Needs to be Read and Shared over and over again!  Mar 29, 2009
The book Presidential Praise should be in the library of every musician, theologian and historian! The scholarship and attention to detail that Ed Spann and Mike Williams have shared in this book combine to tell the story of faith in the lives of our presidents that needs to be told. This book makes history come alive in so many ways and on so many levels. While it is a historical book, it is also a book of devotion, of poetry, of music and of hope. A book that needs to be read and shared over and over again.
Super Book  Jan 18, 2009
This is a wonderful book, combining the aspect of history and hymnology. The authors have done great job weaving a story about each of the presidents and their favorite hymn. The inclusion of the CD with all the songs sung by a small choir is an added bonus.
