David Lighthouse was once a hard-hitting investigative reporter for the Denver Post—back before he was accused of the brutal murder of his fiancé and his life unraveled. Now, six years later, he is the assistant pastor of a small church in Florida. Armed with faith, sobriety, and a resurrected sense of purpose, he’s putting together a new life. But when one of his young;parishioners is murdered, David’s old instincts reemerge. Once again the prime suspect, he fights to clear his name even as disturbing clues at the crime scene reveal a haunting connection not only to his fiancé’s unsolved murder but to his estranged father’s secret past.
David suddenly finds himself the target of sinister, supernatural forces as he tracks down a conspiracy to release an ancient evil upon an unsuspecting world. Along with his father, the murdered girl’s sister, and a fierce Auschwitz survivor, David faces hell itself to prove his innocence and stop a reclusive German billionaire from unleashing a worldwide holocaust.
I am so glad a book like this is out on the shelves. Spiritual Warfare is alive and very active even today. It is not something that just took part in the days Jesus walked the earth, but it happens here, now in 2013 and beyond.There is tremendous advantage gained by the believer who recognizes and can exploits the weaknesses of the enemy. We are engaged in war, the stakes are enormous and our enemy is Satan. Our enemy is God’s enemy, and that enemy is Satan, a created being. In order for you to overcome an enemy, it is of utmost importance to know your foe. When you know your foe, you are on the path to certain victory. I cannot help but think of Ephesians 6: 12 right now "For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places."
Michael did a wonderful job and illustrating this verse. The book was realistic, and the characters were well developed. I particularly liked how the priest had a past that was dark as well. The author did a wonderful job of sticking with biblical perspective for his plot. The story had twists and turns with lots of strong visual imagery that kept you on the edge. I noticed quite a few political undertones with this book as well.
If you love a good mystery/thriller book with a Christian theme you will adore this book.
