Christopher Parkening described his arrangement of "Joy of Man's Desiring" as one of the most difficult pieces in all of guitar repertoire. For me, it's definitely a hand-buster!
With that said, I think that the following pieces from "Favorite Hymns for Acoustic Guitar" by Rick Foster seem quite approachable:
1. Just as I Am, arr. by Chet Atkins
2. There's a Quiet Understanding, arr. Rick Foster
The first tune is probably better known, but the second is very attractive, IMO.
You might also check out Craig Dobbins' "Hymns for Fingerstyle Guitar", which contains pieces that are probably more intermediate in character.
I checked the great market place, a**zon and note that Joseph Castle's book has been reprinted. However, no luck finding reprints of the Parkening and Foster "hymnals." The arrangement of "Jesu" by Castle in Gmaj is rich, a full length, yet decidedly easier than Foster's version in Cmaj. (Although, Joe Castle's arrangement can still give you a good workout! )
