Inspired by two loves – spirituality and ballet – author Jean Gilbertson combines the two in her new book, “Dancing on the Whisper of God: A Novel” (published by Trafford Publishing).

In Gilbertson’s new book, choreographer Calvin Tropp is jolted awake by a divine directive and launches a hard-driving, 63-day effort to prepare a new ballet from scratch with the theme of prayer. All of the choreography and music must be developed and dancers must learn their parts. In the process, they discover the power prayer has to change their lives.

“‘Dancing on the Whisper of God’ is not a book about religion, nor is it about Christianity,” Gilbertson says. “It’s about spiritual awakening and the transformation that can come from it. The transforming power of prayer is available to all of us.”

An excerpt from “Dancing on the Whisper of God”:

“The room was as quiet as predawn. Every face was turned toward him. ‘What this voice said was, “We are going to make a new dance and the theme is prayer.” Now why I did not shake that off as a silly dream, roll over, and go back to sleep, I cannot tell you.’ He corrected himself. ‘Well, maybe I can.”
