"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."

"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.'"

After becoming a Christian in 1978, Dale became a youth worker. He had the privilege of winning the first Canadian National Hot Air Balloon Championship in 1979, but later developed a "Divine dissatisfaction," desiring to do more for the Lord. Eventually the Lord led him to seek ordination in the Anglican Church. The Langs ministered at St. Theodore's Church in Taber for 15 years. Dale currently ministers around the country and at home with the ministry The Rock with his son Mark. He has appeared as a regular guest host of the daily television devotional "In His Service" on 100 Huntley Street.
Dale and Diane have five children: Jeff, Mark, Matthew, Jennifer and Jason (shot and killed at his school in 1999). They continue to live and minister in Taber, Alberta.
