Soul's Gate by James L. Rubart

My thoughts:
I thought I would go with my thoughts on the book first, then tell you about what the book is about!
This fiction work is for Christians who are ready to explore beyond themselves into the spiritual realm. A realm that is all around us but unseen to most. I have tried to read books on this level in the past, like Peretti and Dekker.. often finding them a bit too intense for my liking, or quite frankly confusing. Now my 17 year old son gobbles both of those authors up. When I picked up James Rubart book and saw it was on the spiritual realm I almost passed on it and handed it down to my 17 year old, but thought maybe I can get into this one. I sure did! At first I was a little confused, wondering who is 'real' and who may be an angel or demon, but I got the gist of it pretty quickly. It is a very intense read, full of scripture, and a wonderful eye opener! Often times I find good fiction books that align with scripture, to be very helpful in us understanding apologetic. Rather than preach at us, the author chooses to write in story mode to draw us in. This book will hopefully speak to those Christians on a basic level to delve deeper in their understanding. To realize that there is a spiritual realm around us warring for our souls!
Fantastic book, and I am super excited that it is only the first in the series!!

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.
