This edition is WORDS ONLY. The only way to know this, as far as I can see, is from the front cover image which is small, fuzzy, and largely unreadable. If you are looking for melody lines, music notation, do not buy this edition. The song selection is great if you can find a copy with music.
I must not have looked at all the reviews. This book does not have any music. This is not what I was looking for.
I own all 3 of these (the 4th, says Lillenas Music, is coming out in early 2012 - can't wait!). These are a really good compendium of praise music, even quite current praise music, which we use in our church services on a regular basis. As song leader (read: pick music, compose it if necessary, prep it with other musicians, and lead it in the services), I don't think I could do the job without these books. Not all songs are written in the form of what you might hear the artist sing on their album (not all of the repeats, etc.). This generally makes them more usable in a church setting. The accompaniments are suitable for the average pianist, and the chords are usually spot on.On my wish list would be these same books with just lead sheets (I've read there's a word's only version, but that is not useful to me - I need the melody, chords and words).One drawback is that some of the songs are repeated between the books, but I guess that's ok if you are not purchasing the entire set like I have.
I also was misled into purchasing the "Words Only" edition due to the fact that the picture was small and fuzzy, and there was no description indicating this. The words only do not help me to learn or play the songs! I consequently had to go back and order the other edition, obviously at an additional cost. If you want the edition with music, you must go to the "spiral bound" category!
This book does seem to cover all the best songs: newer contemporary songs, hymns, old familiar choruses.
This is a book we use regularly in worship, and the songs are all beautiful. We really enjoy this book!
This book contains only the WORDS of the songs, not the sheet music. The item description is not perfectly clear and I failed to read the other reviews. Fortunately, I was able to return this book to without any problem at all, so I didn't loose any money.
It wasn't the book I wanted. It was a different one of the same series. The book cover was green, not blue. The book was in excellent condition. Delivery was timely. I will keep the book but it wasn't what I wanted.
