Dance and the Christian Faith is an examination of dance and worship in the context of the bible; the book is a critical discussion of religious dance and how it can be used in the church and in education today. Martin Blogg explores, in both theoretical and practical terms, dance as a form of religious kwing and n-verbal communication, opening new avenues for both experiencing and expressing the faith. First published in 1985, Dance and the Christian Faith was written in response to the paradoxical attitude of many Christians who express an interest and enthusiasm for the arts as part of Christian worship, yet retain a suspicion, even a dislike, of dance. Although centred on dance within a religious context, much of the discussion is directly relevant to dance education and the performing arts in general.

He is presently continuing his research in dance at Griffith University.
