Author Nancy Roth says, "Exploring the church's rich tradition of hymnody has been an important part of my life over the last few years. I have found myself drawn in an extraordinary way into the stories of the poets, saints, martyrs, and quite ordinary people who wrote our hymn texts. The words of a hymn draw me into God's presence, creating a quiet space for reflection and contemplation. Often I find that the texts voice my own prayer, like an alternative prayer book."

Praise My Soul contains selections from Roth's previous three books of hymn meditations in a special, large-print format to make these meditations more easily accessible to all readers.

Nancy Roth's love and enthusiasm for the history and poetry of hymns gives the reader a richer and more complex understanding of even the most familiar hymns, transforming the experience of song into an experience of prayer.

The Rev. Nancy Roth is an Episcopal priest, retreat leader, author, dancer, and musician. Assisting Priest at Christ Episcopal Church in Oberlin, Ohio, she travels widely as a retreat conductor and workshop leader offering classes on the integration of body and spirit. Nancy Roth's many books include Breath of God,  Organic Prayer, An Invitation to Christian Yoga and Spiritual Exercises.
