Hymns to the Living God can stand alone as an excellent church hymnal for churches with a conservative worship philosophy who sing traditional hymns. However, at the incredible price of $8 per hymnal for our Church Pew Edition (more information here), our hymnal could also easily be used as a supplement for churches who are not yet ready to completely replace what they currently have.
One way to check the value of this is to use Hymnary.org’s “Compare hymnals” feature. For example, I was recently asked how many hymns would overlap between our hymnal and Majesty Music’s Rejoice Hymns. The pastor is considering purchasing both. Using the compare hymnal feature of Hymnary.org, I discovered that there are 130 hymns that overlap, our has 215 hymns not in Rejoice, and Rejoice has 577 songs not in ours.
You could do the same, of course, with any hymnal in Hymnary.org’s databases.
