The Styles’ family is about to be sucked into a whirlwind.

Reverend Edwin Styles is a good man, but he is totally unprepared for the spiritual warfare that is about to overwhelm him and his family. He doesn’t believe in demons or warlocks, and he only theoretically believes in angels. But his ignorance of spiritual warfare won’t shield him from being chosen by God for a mis

Excellent story on spiritual warfare! Fast paced with wonderful characters, I had trouble putting this book down. Read it in 2 sittings. Reminded me of Frank Peretti's work in Piercing the Darkness. I have already pre-ordered the sequel. Highly recommended!

Whatever happens in this world one truth remains even though we can not see it. There is a war happening in the spiritual realm between angels and demons and they influence what we do, think and say on a daily basis without even realizing it. For a believer in Jesus, we know that our most powerful weapon is the Word of God and prayer, yet we fail to see how these two impact the invisible world that can make all the difference in our lives. Spiritual warfare fiction has long been a favorite of mi ...more

I Wanted To Love This Book

I love well written spiritual warfare books
.They tell an important part of the Christian life that many don't understand or believe in. This novel had a great premise but the author was all over the place in the storytelling, much was quite "cheesy" in many places. Events were too conveniently placed into the storyline without explanation. I kept reading because I wanted to know how it all turned out. If I were to recommend this book to non believed or new Christian, I

Amazing book on spiritual warfare! This book gets you praying and praising Almighty God! Wow! What an amazing read! There is so much truth in this book. For truly according to Ephesians 6:12 KJV "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places". All glory to Christ Jesus for victory, for He has overcome the world! I recommend this book.

Surprising to me how much I enjoyed this book!

I'm not much of a religious follower so this is not a normal read for me, but it looked interesting so I gave it a try. I have already downloaded the next in the series. Which describes how much I enjoyed this book. Kept me guessing until the end. So even if you think this is of no interest to you, but you enjoy reading well written captivating stories give it a shot. I'm willing to bet you will be surprised as well!

What a great story! In the same vein as Frank Peretti, this story challenges the modern-day Christian about their ideas about the Lord and the Devil. Full of suspense, this spiritual warfare story causes the reader to walk away with a lot to chew on. Read it and it will effect you--what will you do with what you learn? An excellent buy!

This book was wonderful! I read it last but wish I would have read it first! Such wonderful description of spiritual warfare!! I liked how the author, Eric M. Hill shows a progression from darkness to light. Jonathan was truly a servant of God. Once again, real down to earth,realistic experiences that one can relate to.

Loved it!

This is the first book I’ve read by this author, but definitely not the last. Characterization was deep, the plot really moved along, and I gained a whole new perspective of Holy warfare.

Praying More!

This kind of dramatic story encourages me to pray so much more and diligently search the Holy Word of God!
Patricia Hankins

Revival , bold preachers, and hypocrites. Believers and unbelievers. This has them all. The story of God and his timing and perfection is indeed worth reading.

I am learning a lot about spiritual warfare. This story has given me more insight into it. I believe that everyday there are battles being waged and won. Have faith God wins when you believe.

Great read. I am anxious to read the sequel when it is released. I thought one of the subplots was not adequately resolved but it did not detract from the overall satisfaction of finishing a good book. This book may challenge your doctrine. I don't recall having to look up any word definitions. If you can easily match the characters of this book with people in your church, you may be in trouble.

Fasten your spiritual seatbelts when reading this one.Warning

Reading could be dangerous, truth is sometimes wrapped in fiction. Read at your own risk. Don't forget the BLOOD.
Nor the prayers of the righteous.

More Real Than We Know !!

More Real Than We Know !!

Vividly written especially with Christians in mind so we can rightly discern the truth !! Clarity is a beautiful thing. As the Word says "In all thy getting, get understanding. I'll look for the next book.
Not what I was expecting at all. Horrible!

I was unable to put this book down. The warfare in the spirit world between good and evil was told in such a way that it was easy to understand just what is happening in our world. Excellent read!
