Whether he's best known for his many contributions to the current worship catalog, his work with the Passion movement, or his exceptionally long and pointy beard, Charlie Hall has firmly cemented his place as a giant on the modern worship landscape. With The Rising, he offers a collection of songs that come from the pursuit of God in everyday life, and God’s pursuit of us.
"Much like the Psalms, these songs speak of the ascension to, and the embracing of God inside the intense, peaceful and mundane places in life and all of the emotions that fill those spaces. Written from the perspective of the prodigal, poet, pastor, devoted, and the Healer, the poetry and music in this collection of songs encompass devotion to a beautiful God, and the wrestling with our wanderings and the prayers that beg God to be engaging and moving in our beautiful and broken world. The Rising is the ascent, the forward motion and the open heart toward the life giving, healing God, day to day and throughout our lives."
