Front Cover
BayRidge Books, 2003 - Biography & Autobiography - 164 pages
At the same time that North Americans were focusing on the brave actions of several Christian teens in the Columbine High School shooting in Colorado, Canada was quietly having its own Columbine incident. What Canadians once thought 'could only happen in America, ' was now taking place right here in our own backyard to Jason Lang, the son of an Anglican pastor. But God had a plan for this tragedy. Read the true and inspiring story of how a family's torment was used by God as the 'raw material' to turn their anger and grief into a powerful testimony of His grace, through the act of forgiving their son's killer. Since Jason's death, both Dale and his wife Diane have been asked to speak at hundreds of events across the country, including over 250 high schools, numerous conferences, teachers' conventions, the National Prayer Breakfast, television, radio, churches and numerous other functions. "During my interview with Pastor Dale Lang, I was struck by the depth of his loss and the breadth of his capacity to forgive his son's killer. This book will be an inspiration to everyone." -Jim Cantelon, Host: Eye to Eye, CTS Television "Besides being a renowned Anglican priest, few realize that Dale Lang holds a record as being the first in history to fly over the North Pole in a hot air balloon. Dale's steady hand and heart show the way through the most inhospitable places in a world of heartache, sorrow, pain and death. This book is 'A Journey into Joy.'" -David Mainse, 100 Huntley Street
