With his new album, Chris Tomlin does a wonderful job of leading listeners into worship wherever they are. I listened in the minivan with my kids, in the kitchen while cooking, and on my laptop while writing. Each time, I forgot about my to-do list, things I wanted to tell people, events I wanted to plan, and groceries I needed to buy. Instead, I remembered God’s goodness and faithfulness.
“Holy Roar” welcomes people to the throne of God right in the midst of their ordinary lives, and, really that’s the wonder of worship, which doesn’t have to happen in a designated sanctuary or on a certain day of the week. Of course, many of these songs would be great to sing on Sunday mornings with your church family.
As we praise God, we remember what matters
– both in this life and the one to come.
About the album
The album includes 12 songs:
- Holy Roar
- Nobody Loves Me Like You
- Resurrection Power
- Goodness, Love and Mercy
- Praise Him Forever
- Is He Worthy?
- Forever Young
- I Stand In Awe (featuring Nicole Serrano)
- Praise is the Highway
- How Sweet It Is (featuring Pat Barrett)
I’m also intrigued by the companion book by the same time that Tomlin cowrote with his pastor Darren Whitehead. “Holy Roar: 7 Words That Will Change the Way You Worship” shares a fresh perspective about the worship practices of the ancient world and provides insight and encouragement to deepen your practice of praise. This 128-page hardback book is published by Thomas Nelson (Oct. 23, 2018).
