DVD 1: Amazing Grace - 6 Hymns That Changed the World:

This DVD features the complete story of how John Newton, a slave ship captain and self-proclaimed "wretch," was inspired to write Amazing Grace. He devotes his life to God and becomes an ordained minister. It is all here, the amazing story of Amazing Grace.
Along with Amazing Grace, this DVD also includes the stories behind these five hymns:
1. It Is Well With My Soul - Horatio Spafford, a man blessed beyond measure, is rocked by a succession of personal tragedies. Sorrow becomes hope as he pens one of the most profound expressions of faith ever recorded.
2. Silent Night - Austrian parish priest Joseph Mohr's poem, the only song he ever wrote, and schoolteacher Franz Gruber's simple and haunting music, capture the beauty and wonder of the birth of Christ in the carol that took on a life of its own.
3. How Great Thou Art - The beauty and power of a thunderstorm inspired Swedish minister Carl Boberg to write a poem that over the years will be translated and transformed into what is perhaps the world's most beloved hymn of worship.
4. Just As I Am - Charlotte Elliott wrote this song in 1835 never realizing 100 years later, in 1934, a young man named Billy Graham would answer God's call on his life hearing "Just As I Am." That song was used in the Billy Graham Crusades throughout the 20th century and it became the title of his 1997 autobiography, "Just As I Am."
5. What A Friend We Have In Jesus - A poem Joseph Scriven wrote to his ailing mother is set to music and becomes one of the world's greatest hymns, and the legacy of a man who dedicated his life to helping the sick and poor.

DVD 2: A Mighty Fortress is Our God:

A Mighty Fortress is Our God - One of the best loved hymns of the Protestant tradition. Composed and written by Martin Luther, the hymn has been called the "Battle Hymn of the Reformation." The words paraphrase Psalm 46.

Be Thou My Vision - A traditional hymn from Ireland often attributed to Dallan Forgaill in the 8th century, commemorating the ministry of Patrick of Ireland in a region of the Roman Empire ready for spiritual awakening.

All Creatures of Our God and King - Francis of Assisi, circa 1225, wrote this hymn shortly before his death, but it was not published for almost 400 years. Francis founded a monastic order, the "Mendicants" who followed the way of poverty, ministering to the poor and sick. This hymn attributed all things on earth to God.

O Sacred Head Now Wounded - This Christian hymn is based on a medieval poem addressing Christ's body on the cross. The hymn was a reminder of our sin and the wonder of God's grace that forgave all.
