Worship Leader BJ Putnam Releases New Live Worship Album, 'Love Like Fire'

Nov 14 2017

Worship Leader and Songwriter BJ Putnam has released his new album Love Like Fire today. The album, produced by Putnam and GRAMMY Award-Winner Israel Houghton, is available on iTunes and all digital retailers.

"Love Like Fire at its core is a worship album for the church," says Putnam. "My journey writing for this album and collaborating with Israel on producing the songs was an incredible experience. My prayer is that people will encounter the presence of God and sense His healing power as they listen and worship."


Love Like Fire captures the raw emotional experience of live worship. The 12-track album features the single "Love Like Fire." Special guests on the album include Houghton on "Singing Over Me" and "Not Be Moved" and Nicole Binion on "Healing Is Here." Putnam wrote the deeply emotional track "I Am With You" for other people, but the song quickly turned into a powerful healing experience for his wife, who dealt with a difficult season shortly after the album was recorded.

"This album is personal to me," explains Putnam. "My wife suffered from severe anxiety and depression for over a year and it was the hardest thing we have ever been through. When I wrote 'I Am With You' it was with others in mind, but the song quickly became an anthem for my family and carried us through a difficult time. There were nights when we would worship all night until we felt the presence of God lift the weight of anxiety. I believe with all my heart that worship was the key that helped us break-through the darkness. As people listen to this album, my prayer is that they would radically encounter the Holy Spirit and experience the same healing power that healed my wife."
