The story of Michael Kent—student at Edinburgh, Olympic cyclist, then Anglican priest assigned to a San Francisco church—shows, unadorned, his steadfastness, integrity, and seemingly foolish love toward others. All this comes through without hiding or sanitizing his struggles. If you carry an enthusiasm for cycling, you will especially appreciate this book. But, cycling fan or not, you may find that Michael Kent's life in DANCING PRIEST feels a bit like a cycling race: fast pace, determination, struggle, exhilaration, team dynamics, defeat, victory, gratification at crossing the finish line. This story challenged me to persevere in pain, love those who are against me, extend a hand to others in distress, practice art and exercise any God-given abilities, and deepen relationships with those I love. I'm looking forward to reading the sequel, A LIGHT SHINING.
I had the wonderful experience of reading this story aloud as my husband and I took long car trips over the last few weeks. We were both hooked immediately and looked forward to turning on the Kindle whenever we set the cruise control. If I had to guess, I'd say that at least a dozen times, I had to stop reading for a moment to control tears. The story is that gripping, that real.
"The Dancing Priest," captures the imagination and the heart; it tells a beautiful, complex story that is just plain fun to read. At the same time, this very particular story mirrors for us The Story that claims and centers us as human persons. We who are created in the image of God, who are called into relationship, who are wooed and won, restored and rescued by the lover of our souls. Read it - I promise you, this romance will grab you and not let go.
I also appreciate how Glynn demonstrated faith and different faith journeys in a way that seemed believable and fresh. There didn't seem to be even a hint of didacticism or heavy-handedness. The characters faith and stories flowed naturally and beautifully until the conclusion. It's an insightful, entertaining tale that dares to span the globe yet brings you back to the force and depth of a loving relationship between two people that won't be denied.
