“It Is Well With My Soul” is a famous hymn sung for the last 100 years in churches around the world. Horatio Spafford wrote the song while traveling to Europe by boat and crossed the exact spot where earlier his entire family except for his wife died in a crazy boat crash. The song represents the peace of Jesus that surpasses all understanding however, the life of Horatio continued and it led to some pretty strange beliefs and ideals.
Sarah and I have just completed reading the book American Priestess: The Extraordinary Story of Anna Spafford and the American Colonies
It was incredibly interesting and I think it was very well researched and fair.
Tell me what you think about this story.
