Above anything, this book is a great testimony of the struggle Christians have today spiritually. I think we tend to forget that we are in the midst of a spiritual battle – mostly because we can’t “see” it, so it doesn’t seem real to us. But the truth is it is real. This story presents it in a fun and unique way. The message of the gospel is clear throughout the entire story. It is presented by testimony, prayer, bible quotations, and application. At times it felt like I was reading more about a missionary family then two people in a spiritual battle because of how much they shared the gospel. If you think about it though, we need to be sharing the gospel to help with our own spiritual battle so it was really quite fitting.
There were a couple of scenes that made me sort of look away for a moment. One was a blush worthy scene – not a bedroom getting naked kind of scene, but nonetheless a scene I don’t typically see in the books I read, nor do I prefer that. But that is just my own preference, some people don’t mind it at all. Spoiler alert – it didn’t go farther than kissing, it was just the location of the kiss that made me uncomfortable. But in the author’s defense, I can certainly understand why she chose to write this – to show the couple’s natural and physical attraction to each other. Let’s face it folks, we are not perfect. And physical attraction before marriage is very hard to resist. It’s real life and it happens, so while it maybe didn’t appeal to this reader personally, I can applaud the author for showing something that’s real.
The other scenes that were disturbing were regarding the spiritual warfare. And it wasn’t written poorly, it was more like an eye opening to see just how much evil there really can be in the world. It bothered me because it scared me. It made me realize that it’s happening out there – not necessarily in this exact way, but it is there nonetheless. I would not recommend this book to those who easily get upset over stuff like this. But I would recommend it to those who can handle it, and just want a book to remind them that good can overpower evil, with God’s help of course.
Overall I thought this was an interesting story that certainly changed the way I think about spiritual warfare. I think I’m more aware and on the look out now. I received a complimentary copy of this book. I was not required to write a favorable review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
