In her new book, A Time to Dance, Margaret Fisk Taylor recreates the exciting religious response her country-wide "symbolic movement" workshops have engendered in children, young people, and adults.First of all, A Time to Dance is a "how to" book. It tells, graphically and step-by-step, how to be a leader of a dance choir, how many members there should be, what kind of robes to wear, and, trickiest of all, how to get men and boys to join the group. There are descriptions of dance dramas, processions, narrative outlines and special programs for religious holidays.A fascinating section on the history of religious dance begins with the biblical "David danced before the Lord with all his might," and continues through the early Christian church and the medieval miracle and mystery plays.A third section brings to life the renaissance of dance movement in twentieth century religious worship.

In August of 1983, Mark Laughlin, a young graduate student, was involved in a seemingly minor bicycling accident. Thirty-three hours later, he was lying in bed, his body stiff from convulsions and blood gushing from his mouth. It’s seldom that we are allowed to watch a crisis unfold in which the key players let God be God. Many people believe that God is in control and can do what he pleases, that is, until we are gripped by an overwhelming experience. When a trauma of this magnitude strikes, we often question and criticize God. In Laughlin’s story, A Time to Dance, we see how belief in God’s sovereignty affects the individual, the family, the pastor, and the church. We see faith stretched to its breaking point but never lost or broken. In spite of the hopelessness of Mark’s situation, the Laughlin family clings to their faith – a faith also willing to release a beloved son and brother, if that is indeed part of God’s plan. A Time to Dance is a powerful illustration of the unwavering devotion displayed by the Laughlins. It takes you behind the scenes of a tragedy and allows you to share in the miraculous experiences of a family that trusted God.

The title, R-E-A-L World begins with an acronym that stands for: 'RAZORS EDGES ARMED LIVES'. These four words summarize conditions in Los Angeles and San Francisco during 1982 and 1992, and some other times and places as well. Most of the events described in this story were witnessed personally by the author, and therefore are a part of his personal history. The story describes a 'real world' unknown to many readers, but one they have a right to discover. There is one basic reason this book was written: to educate! - Edward Ivy
