Veteran songsmith Christopher Williams inspired by the book of Joel

Book Of Joel

NASHVILLE-based singer/songwriter Christopher Williams released his 12th independent album on 8th February. The 12-song project 'We Will Remember' features songs inspired by the Old Testament book of Joel. Said Williams, "The book of Joel is often a skipped-over part of the Old Testament. There are a lot of painful and desolate things that happen in the narrative but we can also see God's hand of restoration throughout. As we face difficult and tragic moments in our world, nation and personal lives, the book of Joel seems quite relevant for us today." The development of 'We Will Remember' began during conversations between Williams and his friend and author Jaco J Hamman. The album was commissioned to become a companion piece to Hamman's new book The Millennial Narrative: Sharing A Good Life With The Next Generation. CR
