 My Review:

I am thrilled to have read this book and its well done, strong message! This book will offend those who don't want to see how some of the darker spiritual forces creep in and how they can alter the lives of those who aren't aware and fighting it. Jerold was just teaching at a seminary. Like some other lukewarm Christians, he was just going through the motions. Jerold is not particularly processing them at all. When a chain reaction of things starts, he finds himself in a situation similar to the movie The Net, but with all the spiritual aspects included. Jerold has opened spiritual doors and lack of an active relationship with God may not have been his best move. What will he do now? There's murder, and mystery and all kinds of spiritual warfare. Friends and foes, and it's written to make people think. I really like that about this story. Where can doubting God lead? Who do you trust?

I think the a author did a really great job of showing the darker side of things that I've been exposed to some of in the past. Not for the same reasons, but it helped me understand where this story was going. 

I can't give it less than 5 stars and a heads-up for those who haven't seen some of the spiritual struggles that are not so hidden in the dark.

Cancel Culture? This is worse.

All around us we see our culture changing, and not for the better. Sometimes it seems like all the voices we hear are filled with anger, hatred and intolerance.

There’s a reason for that:  They are all rooted (you guessed it) in anger, hatred and intolerance.

It was time to step back and look at what it’s like to be canceled, but from an entirely different source: The Supernatural.

The main character is a preacher, but one of those who does NOT believe in a supernatural god. He doesn’t know what he believes. But when he’s finally confronted with a supernatural experience he cannot deny, he finds that walking on the dark side is going to cost him his life.

The only solution, both for him and the one he falls in love with, is to know God, and get access to the supernatural weapons he never dreamed existed.
