She was one of the most prolific hymnists in history, writing more than 8,000 hymns and gospel songs, with more than 100 million copies printed, despite being blind from shortly after birth. She is also known for her teaching and her rescue mission work. By the end of the 19th century, she was a household name.

Fanny Crosby Still Lives is a new biography of the blind 19th century hymn writer, Frances J. ("Fanny") Crosby . Darlene Neptune tells this moving story from her unique vantage point of performing and singing on stage as Fanny. ("Fanny") Crosby (1820-1915), who wrote over 8,000 hymns (including "Blessed Assurance" and "Safe in the Arms of Jesus"). In addition to her hectic hymn writing and teaching career, and despite being a woman, and blind, Fanny personally championed the cause of the desperate and needy in her local area (New York City and Bridgeport, CT), as well as advising presidents and political leaders and travelling all over the country

A few years ago I wrote a book on the Life of Fanny Crosby entitled, 'Fanny Crosby Stills Lives", Pelican Publishing. They made a movie, 'The Fanny Crosby Story'.

A few years ago I wrote a book on the Life of Fanny Crosby entitled, 'Fanny Crosby Stills Lives", Pelican Publishing. I was in as biographer and involved with all aspects of the movie, that was a lot of fun! In November 08, I went to Alaska and did a Ladies Seminar, a concert and the Drama in several places, that was way cool! BUT COLD. Was in Akutan and Dutch Harbor, yes that's where they film the TV show, 'World's Deadliest Catch', about fishing for Crabs!

Frances Jane Crosby, known by her family and friends as Fanny, was born
in a little cottage at Gayville in the community of Southeast, Putnam County, NY, on Mar. 24, 1820. At six weeks old she caught a cold, and when a country doctor mistakenly diagnosed her condition and prescribed a hot mustard poultice for her inflamed eyes, her eyes were scarred and she gradually lost her eyesight until she became blind at age five. However, at age eight, she produced her first poem. "Oh, what a happy child I am, Although I cannot see! I am resolved that in this world Contented I will be." After studying for several years at the New York State School for the Blind in New York City, she became one of nineteenth-century America's best-loved poets and hymn writers prior to her death just short of her 95th birthday on Feb. 12, 1915. Some of her well-known songs include "Blessed Assurance," "He Hideth My Soul," "Redeemed," "Safe in the Arms of Jesus," "Hold Thou My Hand," "Praise Him, Praise Him," "Tell Me the Story of Jesus," and "Close to Thee."
As a result of my interest in hymns, I have read several biographies of Fanny Crosby, including Fanny Crosby: The Story of the Blind Saint Who Wrote Close to 9,000 Hymns by Bonnie C. Harvey in Bethany House's Men and Women of Faith series, and Fanny Crosby: The Hymn Writer by Bernard Ruffin in Barbour's Heroes of the Faith series. In truth, Fanny did NOT write close to 9,000 hymns. She did write over 8,000 poems, but only about 3,000 of those ever became hymns. The author of Fanny Crosby Still Lives, Darlene Neptune, is reputed to be one of the world's leading authorities on the life and works of Fanny Crosby. Her research includes newspaper articles and other historical documents as well as visits to Fanny's birthplace, school, home, and burial place. A gospel singer, she has developed a program "Fanny Crosby Drama" which she presents to audiences around the nation. The book is a fictionalized biography presented as if Darlene had gone back to 1914 and interviewed "Aunt Fanny," so that most of the story is told as if Fanny herself were speaking. The last section chronicles the beginning of Darlene's interest in Fanny and the development of her Drama.
The book, a copy of which was given to me by a friend, is said to be "The Most Complete History Ever Written." Well, it does have some interesting tidbits of information that I have not seen elsewhere, but there is also a lot of material about Fanny's work which I have seen in other biographies but did not find in this book. And there are some questionable claims, such as "the fact that she was a personal friend and spiritual advisor to every president who held office during her lifetime." She certainly met several presidents, usually on formal occasions when she rendered a "poetical address," but only her acquaintance with Grover Cleveland approached close personal friendship. Also, while it is true that Fanny wrote under a number of pseudonyms, some of the aliases which Neptune assigns to her and some of the hymns which she is supposed to have written using them just don't match up with other very reputable authorities. At the same time, the book does contain some very interesting reading and features a large collection of photographs.

I have had a passion for Fanny Crosby and her music since childhood, which is how we got to know Darlene Neptune. At her presentation, we felt we were actually watching Aunt Fanny!
Darlene has put many years of research into her work, and has visited the Crosby house and gravesite. I have read other material on Ms. Crosby, and Ms. Neptune's is consistent. Ms. Crosby's family has also shown their support for Ms. Neptune's work.
Darlene has put her life in God's hands and has let Him lead in her work. One only has to watch her presentation to see this.
I give her book 5 stars, and I give Darlene 5 stars, also!

I HAVE KNOWN DARLENE NEPTUNE FOR MANY YEARS AND LOOKED FORWARD TO DISCUSSING THIS BOOK WITH HER ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS AS SHE WAS WRITING IT. I KNOW DARLENE WORKED VERY HARD TO BE AS ACCURATE AS POSSIBLE IN PRESENTING FANNY CROSBY TO US. SHE OVERCAME MANY OBSTACLES AND HINDRANCES IN PUTTING THIS BOOK TOGETHER. DARLENE IS A GOD-FEARING LADY WHO ONLY SEEKS TO PRESENT OUR LORD AND SAVIOR TO OTHERS. YOU CAN TRUST HER WORK COMPLETELY. GREAT BOOK.

I truly enjoyed reading this book about Fanny Crosby. I learned much about this wonderful writer who has influenced so much of our Christian music hymns. Darlene Neptune did a fine job of researching and making Fanny Crosby come alive in her book. I would recommend this book very highly.

Having read quite a few biographies of Fanny Crosby, as she is one of my 'heroes of the faith,' I would recommend the new book by Blumhofer, or the old standby by Bernard Ruffin. This book, by Darlene Neptune, isn't worth the paper it's printed on.
