What people are saying:
Encountering God Through Dance is the wonderful journey of a radical lover of God…and a manual for instruction and inspiration. Bill Johnson, Senior Pastor, Bethel Church
This is by far the most refreshing book I have read in a long time. Saara Taina has given her life to a core area of life that is far too marginalized in many churches. Marc A. Dupont, Mantle of Praise Ministries, Inc.
Rarely do you see a book that offers passion, testimonies, and biblical expertise so that others can be fully equipped. Theresa Dedmon, Director of Prophetic Arts, Bethel Church
We have personally experienced the breakthrough power of the dance many, many times in Succat Hallel, our 24/7 worship room that overlooks Mount Zion in Jerusalem. Rick and Patti Ridings, Succat Hallel
The authors personal journey of devotion through dance has taken her worldwide. She wraps her exciting travels with a solid biblical framework for the importance of dance in the Kingdom of Godon earth, today!
"The Dancing Bride is the wonderful journey of a radical lover of God, Saara Taina. To see Saara dance is to see the pleasure of the Lord resting upon a person fully given to Jesus. She truly is a lover of God in the fullest sense. This book is both the story of her journey as a worshiper and a manual for instruction and inspiration. In it is the invitation for everyone yielded to Jesus, to learn how to worship extravagantly."
Bill Johnson, Senior pastor of Bethel Church, Author of When heaven Invades Earth and Face to Face with God
"The Dancing Bride will not only powerfully encourage the reader to move deeper into expressing their heart to God, but it will also, in a life changing way, help the mind grasp in detail what it means to worship the Father in Spirit and in truth."
Marc A. Dupont, Mantle of Praise Ministries, Inc
"Finally a book, which doesn't just talk about the power of Kingdom dance, but testifies about it through gripping stories from Saara's own life as one who has trained others in dance throughout the nations. "
Theresa Dedmon Director of Prophetic Arts at Bethel Church, Redding CA
grace5 Stars Out Of 5This book will bring you back to your First LoveJune 22, 2012graceI wept as I read "Encountering God Through Dance." It brought back to my remembrance all of the times that God had spoken to me on the great importance of worship. I wept because I realized how much has been stolen from the church. I realized how much joy has been stolen from our churches and homes and lives. I repented for the lack of worship in my own life. This book put an intense longing to extravagantly worship the Lord in my heart. This book has an anointing on it that will bring you back to your First Love. My heart had been so dry for so long. I would read books and go to conferences but nothing seemed to work. This book did what other things haven't. As I read it, the embers were stirred in my heart. A great desire to worship My King returned. The presence of God was so strong as I read this book, I couldn't stop weeping. I believe this was a form of intercession praying for this type of pure worship to be restored to the church. I believe that this book is God's heartbeat for His church.
This book is filled with scriptures that speak of the importance of worship and particularly of dance in worship.
I would recommend this book to all Christians. It describes what we were created for and what we have been seeking.

richard r blakeBridgman, MIAge: Over 65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Inspiration for Leading Worship Through DanceJune 19, 2012richard r blakeBridgman, MIAge: Over 65Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5"Encountering God through Dance" is written especially for those called to the ministry of dance in worship, to those starting a dance ministry, and to everyone wanting to participate in creative worship "like a bride" desiring to celebrate in the presence of her beloved.
Saara Taina shares experiences from her own unique and personal journey which includes:
Ã¢â¬Â¢ The discovery of freedom to express worship through dance
Ã¢â¬Â¢ The opportunity for training in the techniques of the art form of dance
Ã¢â¬Â¢ Becoming sensitive to recognizing the presence of God in the worship of His people
Ã¢â¬Â¢ Learning a practical approach to starting a dance ministry
Ã¢â¬Â¢ Training others in the fundamental steps to developing an effective team
I received a timely message from the family of a close friend of our church on the Care Pages web-site as I was reading Saara's book, the message reads: "Today, at 12:50 pm, our sweet mom left us and went to dance on the streets of heaven." I don't think this was a simple coincidence, no - I think it was a unique God encounter which gave me a whole new appreciation for the timeliness and sensitivity of Saara's writing.
Taina writes with a passion to introduce, equip, and implement the joy of expressing worship through dance. "Encountering God through Dance" is filled with solid Biblical teaching on often overlooked passages which introduce the diversity of music and other expressions of practiced by true believers in God.
