It's a Dance: Moving with the Holy Spirit (2007)

Luke is a journalist at a local newspaper in Southern California doing a series of articles on churches in the area. As he interviews Nate, pastor of a nontraditional church that operates a pub, he learns more why than who, what, when, and where.

Patrick Oden, a first-time author, uses a fictitious church and fictitious people to write a nonfiction book about the Holy Spirit. Oden destroys the myth that solid Christian doctrine is only communicated in a didactic style. The personalities of the people and the conversational style turn theology into an enlightening, fascinating read.

The premise sounds intriguing but the title is what really caught my attention. The idea of dance is fairly new to me in regards to a relationship/experience with God's Spirit, but again it tugs my soul. Please put my name in your drawing.
Thanks, Michelle!

Blessings,
Becca

I think sometimes we get more hung up on our 'stuff' than on following the Spirit. Sounds like an interesting read.

Hello! It seems like a book with quite a different subject matter and written very uniquely. I don't even know what the word didactic means.
Please enter me in your book drawing. I appreciate it very much! Thanks, Cindi
