I was expecting a straightforward book with just charts and got so much more. From the context and meaning behind songs to a wonderfully written forward.
The Urbana 18 Songbook is the official, limited-edition songbook of Urbana 18—InterVarsity’s 25th Student Missions Conference.
This songbook is a one-of-a-kind collection of the songs that shaped the conference’s musical worship like “Somlandela / Love is Calling,” “Weep No More / Faithful Unto Death,” “Revelation 19:1,” “Tenemos Esperanza,” and many more!
Inside this softcover songbook, you will find chord charts, lyrics, translations, tips for worship leaders, and song stories to help you better understand and explain each song's context and significance.
Whether you attended Urbana or not, this songbook is a unique resource to help you and your community go deeper into global worship. It also makes a great gift for past Urbana participants, worship leaders, pastors and anyone with a passion for global Church worship!
I loved the songs that we sung at Urbana 18 and waited for the songbook to come out so I could try to lead these songs in my congregation. I love that the song sheets come with a story and culture explanation to where the inspiration of selection came.
The songs in this songbook brought me back to those URBANA days and reminded me of what I've committed to do. Love the introductions to the songs and the translations! It was so meaningful just reading through it. Hoping to share these songs with other people (now that I have the chords) :D
Love every single song in this songbook and hope to be able to use it for the church I am in!
