Book Review - Soul's Gate

ABOUT THE BOOK:

Book 1 in the Well Spring series.

"Every now and then we get a break from reality. A glimpse into the other world that is more real than the reality we live in 99 percent of our days. The Bible is about a world of demons and angels and great evil and even greater glory."
What if you could travel inside another person's soul? To battle for them. To be part of Jesus healing their deepest wounds. To help set them free to step boldly into their divinely designed future.
Thirty years ago that's exactly what Reece Roth did. Until tragedy shattered his life and ripped away his future.

Now God has drawn Reece out of the shadows to fulfill a prophecy spoken over him three decades ago. A prophecy about four warriors with the potential to change the world . . . if Reece will face his deepest regret and teach them what he has learned.

They gather at a secluded and mysterious ranch deep in the mountains of Colorado, where they will learn to see the spiritual world around them with stunning clarity-and how to step into the supernatural.

Their training is only the beginning. The four have a destiny to pursue a freedom even Reece doesn't fully fathom. But they have an enemy hell-bent on destroying them and he'll stop at nothing to keep them from their quest for true freedom and the coming battle of souls.

MY REVIEW:

This was the most unusual book I've ever read. It was a bit disconcerting regarding the idea that people could enter other people's souls and this took a bit to get used to. The author does state that he doesn't actually believe that this is possible and I want to emphasize that this is a Christian/Science-Fiction book.  In a lot of ways, it reminded me of the Frank Peretti books I've read.

This book is full of twists and turns and the outcome of the mission of these four men is so important, you truly are on the edge of your seat as you follow the story.  I enjoyed the characters and struggled as they struggled and rejoiced as they rejoiced.

The greatest thing I enjoyed about this book was the reminder of the importance of our walk with the Lord and that there are great battles going on that we don't see regarding our salvation. It also reminded me that not only are there battles going on in the heavens, but that there are battles right here on earth against evil that we are called to battle and that we have Jesus on our side!

This book was very hard to put down and you'll find yourself drawn to it again and again. Although this is a work of fiction, the Spiritual implications and the very real battle of good against evil, will make you desire to have a closer walk with the Lord! I highly recommend this book. A real page turner!
