    Even though I gave 5 stars to This Present Darkness, I love Piercing The DarknessThe second book has touched me much deeply and has even moved me to tears as I journeyed with Sally Beth Roe until she finally found her salvation I love the hide and seek cat and mouse mystery that shrouds Roe s character, and I feel strongly attached to her in a very emotional way I can relate to the questions and confusions she laid down in her letters to Tom Harris I especially loved that the story h Even though I gave 5 stars to This Present Darkness, I love Piercing The DarknessThe second book has touched me much deeply and has even moved me to tears as I journeyed with Sally Beth Roe until she finally found her salvation I love the hide and seek cat and mouse mystery that shrouds Roe s character, and I feel strongly attached to her in a very emotional way I can relate to the questions and confusions she laid down in her letters to Tom Harris I especially loved that the story has a big portion on legal issues on it, plus some courtroom drama andparticularly, one major character was a Christian lawyer This is what really made the story very close to my heart.For the complete review, you may go to It s A Wonderful Bookworld

    Wow The first book was amazing, but the second book was even greater This was full of action as well as suspense as you follow Sally visiting all the significant places in her past in search of answers.After Sally escapes barely from a plot to kill her, she escapes in search of answers and trying to stay on step ahead of her killers Angels are trying to protect her while demons from her past is trying to destroy her.This is one amazing book of spiritual warfare I would recommend to any Christ Wow The first book was amazing, but the second book was even greater This was full of action as well as suspense as you follow Sally visiting all the significant places in her past in search of answers.After Sally escapes barely from a plot to kill her, she escapes in search of answers and trying to stay on step ahead of her killers Angels are trying to protect her while demons from her past is trying to destroy her.This is one amazing book of spiritual warfare I would recommend to any Christian reader Frank Peretti did an amazing job in showing the reader a glimpse of the spiritual warfare going on and the importance we as Christians play The story was gripping and the reading easy to follow, as well as to flow the story where it goes from the human story, to the dialect and story of the Angels and demons.I was reminded once again of the authority we have in Christ and that we need to step up and walk in this authority Scriptures I was reminded of during reading this book was For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it I don t think this book even begins to describe half of what is actually happening in the heavenly realms.This book made me glad I chose the side of the light Jesus already conquered all We need to start living like we believe that

    The Darkness series, of which this is the second and final volume, revolutionized Christian literature as we know it Without it, there would be no Beverly Lewis Amish novels, no end times fiction, nor pretty much popular Christian literature as it is today I hadn t read any parts of this series in a while, but I devoured it in one sitting, despite its length I m not sure that spiritual warfare is exactly as this book describes, but it still made for an entertaining read.

    Worth reading as long as you remember it s fiction This is the second I ve read in the series I reserved judgement after reading the first book as I had conflicting thoughts about the subject matter and how it was dealt with The two books are similar occultic practices concentrated in a school in this case result in a cosmic battle between good and evil angels and demons and the humans mimic the battle on earth The writing is compelling, although repetitive in places and I got a bit bored Worth reading as long as you remember it s fiction This is the second I ve read in the series I reserved judgement after reading the first book as I had conflicting thoughts about the subject matter and how it was dealt with The two books are similar occultic practices concentrated in a school in this case result in a cosmic battle between good and evil angels and demons and the humans mimic the battle on earth The writing is compelling, although repetitive in places and I got a bit bored during some of the spiritual physical fights as it was quite samey The human narratives are interesting and the story is well weaved together.As this is fiction commenting on a real spiritual battle, I need to address the theology There are several problems The first is that, in both books, the demons are responsible for every sin They are labelled with names like lust, gossip, slander, deceit etc They cling to their recipients with their talons and effectively guide and influence every aspect of that person s behaviour I think this gives too much power to Satan whilst we know that he was responsible for original sin entering the world and therefore the original fall of man, the Bible says that it is out of the heart of man that these sins originate Therefore, we are responsible for our behaviour Blaming various demons for sin leads us down a dangerous path where we cannot ultimately be held responsible It lessens the victory of Jesus on the cross as it partially removes the need for Him to die in our place.On a similar note, one of the humans accuses the demons of killing Jesus This is incorrect as it implies that something went wrong and that God was not in control We know that Satan caused Judas to betray Jesus and that he was involved in what happened But, it was people our sin that killed Jesus and this was ultimately fulfilling the redemption plan of God God punished Jesus on the cross instead of us having to be punished Satan the demons were never in control of events.The impact of prayer is well represented in both books The way the spirit world responds to prayer is clearly depicted in Scripture and in the author s writing I have the same concerns about the graphic details of the demonic manifestations and occult activity as I had after reading the first book I don t think it s something that Christians should fill their minds with Would you read a book watch a movie full of sex, violence or swearing just because good triumphs over evil I definitely don t think children should be reading this.Jury s still out but I do have some concerns and I m also questioning the purpose of these books If the goal is to wake us up to the realities of the spirit world, I m not sure the author really does that because it will just make people think there is a demon behind everything and perhaps even blame demons for their sin If the goal is to get us praying then that is a worthy one Unfortunately, most of the reviews of these books from non believers are just mocking because the depictions make Christians seem crazy When I talk to non believers about the devil, I am always very careful to destroy the false ideas they have from TV books This type of book could serve to enhance the wrong ideas people have I think it s better to focus at first on sin in the life of an individual and how that damages our relationship with God and keeps us out of heaven

    We must be prepared to face our demons25 December 2012 The main reason that I did not like this book was because it was shoved down my throat by a fundamentalist Christian when I was twenty years old and living in a halfway house because I had pretty much stuffed up my life To be honest, I had been charged with a number of criminal offences, stolen about 1000.00 in 1990s money off of my parents, and was hanging around with a guy that was not only a bad influence, but also a bad smell Before We must be prepared to face our demons25 December 2012 The main reason that I did not like this book was because it was shoved down my throat by a fundamentalist Christian when I was twenty years old and living in a halfway house because I had pretty much stuffed up my life To be honest, I had been charged with a number of criminal offences, stolen about 1000.00 in 1990s money off of my parents, and was hanging around with a guy that was not only a bad influence, but also a bad smell Before I go into this book I might say a word or two about this guy He was a funny guy, a refugee from an Eastern bloc country isn t it funny that refugees from European and Asian Countries were welcomed, but refugees from Middle Eastern Countries aren t who wanted to live the life but did not want to work for it I suspect that the main reason he hung around me was because he thought that I could come up with grand some money making scheme that would make him rich, but with the minimal amount of work probably also because I looked up at him, and he was one of those people that loved having people around that looked up to him it gave him some form of identity It was like if he could buy alcohol and clothes by passing off stale cheques or stolen credit cards it was a lot easier back in those days to rack up credit card debt on somebody else s card because the shops would not be notified until at least a month after the card was reported stolen , he would do it, but if it involved establishing a publishing house or even a dodgy stock brokerage firm he was not interested Oh, and he was also the type of guy that would pretty much take everything for himself, and when I said he was a bad smell, I meant it I simply could not get rid of him I would try to disconnect myself from him, and then suddenly he would rock up at my door one day and want to hang around with me I really don t know what happened to him, and in a way I am curious because it has been a long time since I have seen him and it would be interesting to see if he has pulled himself out of the rubbish that he had got himself into as I have done , or if he is dead Mind you, that is all by the by, because this book is about spiritual warfare It is about a woman who is haunted by a demon and has to come to terms with this demon by fighting it A number of Christians that I know don t like this book because it is very works based the main character has to fight and overcome the demon herself when in reality it is through God that we are able to overcome our demons Mind you, when I speak about overcoming our demons, I mean it in both in the literal and the metaphorical sense One of the funny things that I have found in my life so far is that sometimes our demons both literal and metaphorical can be location based, and sometimes they can simply be due to who you hang around with, and I guess that is why I mentioned the story of that guy above It wasn t until I managed to not only separate myself from him, but from all of the people that were related to him, that my life began to turn around again Look, I am not blaming my problems on him, by no means, because I always had a choice There was one time where I surprise, surprise ran into him in Victoria Square when I was with another friend, and I was given the choice of going with him or with my other friend I couldn t have both and I ended up going with him bad choice The same has happened recently, in that I have moved myself seven hundred kilometres away from my source of marijuana and I have begun to clean myself up though I still probably drinkthan I should, and am kicking myself that I did not buy any beer on Christmas Eve to discover that even in Melbourne you can t buy beer on Christmas Day and even save money As I write this on Christmas Day in 2012, I must say that I have managed to achieve three goals this year, I have moved interstate, I have saved 5000.00 and put it into my share trading account, and I have beaten the market by about 8% The third one, I must admit, wasluck than skill, and I am not expecting to do the same next year, but I guess my next goal is to bring certain holdings up to about 5000.00 each, and also develop a friendship network here in Melbourne, as well as going to Hong Kong and connecting with a church there One should remember though that the Bible says that it is not that we should not be making plans, but that we should be making plans with God s purposes in mind, and as I look back on my achievements this year, once again I will have to say that it is not through any skill of my own, but through God s grace that I have been able to do that
