Litfuse Tour: Memory’s Door (A Well Spring Novel) by James L. Rubart #grow4christ

on September 10, 2013

About the Book: The prophecy brought them together—to fight for the hearts of others and set them free.

But the Wolf has risen, and now their greatest battle begins.

The four members of Warriors Riding have learned to wage war in the supernatural, to send their spirits inside people’s souls, to battle demonic forces, and to bring deep healing to those around them.

But their leader Reece is struggling with the loss of his sight. Brandon is being stalked at his concerts by a man in the shadows. Dana’s career is threatening to bury her. And Marcus questions his sanity as he seems to be slipping in and out of alternate realities.

And now the second part of the prophecy has come true. The Wolf is hunting them, and has set his trap. He circles, feeding on his supernatural hate of all they stand for. And he won’t stop until he brings utter destruction to their bodies . . . and their souls.

My Opinion:

 

These are not usually my type of books and since I hadn’t read the first book, Litfuse kindly sent me the first and the second book.  Soul’s Gate pulled me right in and it was more of an introduction into the characters and what they were training for.  Most Christians believe in spiritual warfare but most don’t really give most thought or know how to fight against the evil spirits who do wage war in the here and now – the Bible assures we are not in a physical battle.  I have to say these books were quite a change from my usual reads of Amish and historical fiction and I must say I’m quite pleased.  I know some may take issue with these books, but I am grounded enough to know that one cannot simply enter another soul and battle for them.

 

One thing this book did is make me aware of how often we put the Bible and God into a box and think that He only works with our realm, the physical, what we can see right now.  Through out the book are Scripture that makes one truly think about what we believe about being able to be in one place and instantly whisked off to another (sorry, I forget the name right now).  The author knows that one cannot enter another soul, and some of this is purely fictional but I know to his books has made me realize that we cannot put God in a box that we so want to – He isn’t as neat as all that and He doesn’t merely work with what we can see because there is also the spiritual realm (no, I don’t mean ghosts and haunting – those are from Satan himself).

 

When reading this series keep an open mind, not about changing what being a Christian means, but about what you thought you knew about spiritual warfare, about what you think God is, was and will be, and what your per-conceived notions are about the spiritual world.  Don’t forget it’s a work of fiction and Mr. Rubart acknowledges that and never one does he present his work of fiction as fact – although it does seem quite real – the only thing presented as fact is the Scripture and then the reader is allowed to go read their Bible (if they chose too) and wrestle with some of these ideas themselves.  I really enjoyed both book and look forward to the next one!
