Hendrickson Worship has thought of everything.

For centuries, the church has relied on hymns as a source of doctrinal instruction. In recent years, new songs of praise have filled our churches, giving voice to hearts yearning to express worship. The Christian Life Hymnal gathers all of these musical expressions of redemption and faith together in a new volume for today's church.
