God, Improv, and the Art of Living
by Maryann McKibben Dana and Susan E. Isaacs




Overview -

The famous improvisational principle of "yes, and . . ." has produced a lot of great comedy. But it also offers an invigorating approach to life in general, and the spiritual life in particular. From Moses to Ruth to Jesus, Scripture is full of people boldly saying "yes, and . . ." as they accept what life throws their way and build upon it.

In this book, pastor, speaker, and improv aficionado MaryAnn McKibben Dana blends Scripture, psychology, theology, and pop culture in a wise, funny, down-to-earth guide to God, improv, and the art of living. Offering concrete spiritual wisdom in the form of seven improvisational principles, this book will help readers become more awake, creative, resilient, and ready to play--even (and perhaps especially) when life doesn't go according to plan.

"We are all improvisers," says McKibben Dana, "often without realizing it. We improvise in order to get through the day. We improvise when life surprises us. We do it without even thinking about it. This book will help you do it better."
