In this four-session video Bible study (study guide sold separately), Chris Tomlin and Darren Whitehead share a fresh perspective from the worship practices of the ancient world to show what it really means to praise God. They explain that in the Jewish culture, something extraordinary happened when God's people gathered to worship him. It was more than just singing-it was a declaration, a proclamation, and a time for the people to fully embody praise to God for who he is and what he has done.
In the book of Psalms, the writers used seven distinct words that are translated into English as praise. However, as Chris and Darren point out in this study, each of these Hebrew words actually represents a different aspect of what it means to truly worship God:
Yadah: to revere or worship with extended hands Halal: to boast, celebrate, and be clamorously foolish Zamar: to celebrate in song and in music Towdah: to give thanksgiving for things not yet received Barak: to kneel before God and bless him Tehillah: to sing a spontaneous song to God Shabach: to commend, glory, and triumph
Holy Roar will provide insights and encouragement for group members to deepen their practice of praise and they learn about the deeper meanings of these words and put them into practice.

Chris Tomlin is one of the best-known Christian music artists today. In his own words, Tomlin 'writes songs to be a lighthouse' - reaching as many people as possible by opening worship up to everything it can be. In fact, rather than an artist alone, Tomlin prefers to be known as an artist/worshipper. His albums have sold over 2 million copies. He has six number one radio singles, fourteen Dove Awards and two gold albums and was twice named male vocalist of the year by the Gospel Music Association. Tomlin is a co-founder and worship leader at Passion City Church in Atlanta.
