The stories in "The Mushroom Farm" are based on the author’s life experiences just as they happened and they are stories that have been used in the author’s sermons for more than fifteen years. Each of Rev. Dolan’s stories has been woven into Holy Scripture selected for that day. The cross referencing to scripture allows the reader the opportunity to explore their own stories in relation to God’s word. Through this sharing of experiences, the book’s purpose is to offer hope and strength in troubled times and enhance one’s joy in those special moments in life.
"The Mushroom Farm" follows Dolan’s age in life. The stories travel through his early childhood in England and growing up in Llandaff, Wales. They continue through his life studying and working in London and ultimately his life here in the United States, taking the reader through 52 stories to the present day. God is always present and available to us, but we as human beings have the opportunity for a growing discernment of that presence if, as Bishop Griswold describes it, “we just watch, listen and learn”.
John McClure, president of Signalman Publishing, stated, “Rev. Dolan produced a wonderful book that I know will bless anyone who reads it. 'The Mushroom Farm', with its intriguing title and fascinating stories based on the author’s experience living in God’s word, is a well-deserved nominee for the CSPA Book of the Year.”
The final 2012 Book of the Year selection is based on voting by retailers, publishers, authors and readers. The voting ballot can be accessed online at: http://www.christianpublishers.net/
