Sunday night at Nashville's Church of the City, Elisabeth Hasselbeck helped Tomlin and Whitehead celebrate the release of HOLY ROAR, talking with each about the inspiration behind the book, its purpose, and how it has affected each of them personally. Woven throughout the night Tomlin performed some of the worship songs from the book including, "We Fall Down" and "How Great Is Our God."
In HOLY ROAR, Tomlin and Whitehead share a fresh perspective from the worship practices of the ancient world. The book aims to grow readers in their understanding of praise as Whitehead offers unique insights, and be inspired as Tomlin shares how those insights take shape in the stories behind favorite worship songs.
Kicking off later this week on October 12th in St Louis, MO., Tomlin will launch his Good Good Father Tour, during which Whitehead will share from HOLY ROAR. Hitting 18 cities across the U.S., the tour will also feature special guest Matt Maher. For tour dates information and tickets click here.
