The Sons of Thunder was a Christian rock band named for two of Jesus' disciples, James and John, to whom Jesus gave the name "Boanerges, which is Sons of Thunder". The group was formed in 1967 by Blaine Smith along with Robin Woodhams, Don Williamson, Joan Hettenhouser, and Donna Gadling at the suggestion of youth pastor Russ Cadle and with the encouragement of Dr. Richard C. Halverson, pastor of Fourth Presbyterian Church in Bethesda, Maryland. Their first album, "Till the Whole World Knows" was released in 1968 by Zondervan Recordings.[1]
