A winsome, beautifully written, page-turning account of a modern spiritual journey. An Immovable Feast is a gateway, leading readers into a world of transformation. A fresh breeze blows through it, one that perhaps has not blown through Christian conversation in a long time. Blanski reminds us that religion is not dead because it is not mortal. It is the festival of heaven on earth.
An Immovable Feast is a profound love story told with humor, wisdom, and bite. It tells the colorful and gripping story of one man’s religious path that begins with a fundamentalist Baptist childhood to an adolescence in emergent church spirituality. He moves on through hipster years as a house painter and musician and then marries and enters a seminary in Wisconsin. After years of wearing a black cassock and preparing to be an Anglican priest, he boldly joins the Catholic Church. Tyler Blanski’s tale does not reject suitors of religion, but seduces them.
“Indeed a feast to both mind and heart.”
“This book reads like poetry, entertains like satire, and convicts as only the truth can convict. It is a marvel of charity and a prodigy of style.”
“With converts as articulate as Tyler Blanski, the Church is in excellent shape.”
