"Soul's Gate" by Jim Rubart - Book Review




This book releases Nov 6, 2012 by Thomas Nelson publishers.

Reece stood and faced the group. “Every now and then we get a break from reality. A glimpse into the other world that is more real than the reality we live in 99 percent of our days. The Bible is about a world of demons and angels and great evil and even greater glory. A world the prophets saw; the world Enoch, and Elijah, and Paul, and John the apostle all saw. A world that is all around us in every moment if we would have eyes to see and ears to hear.”
What if you could travel inside another person’s soul? To battle for them. To be part of Jesus healing their deepest wounds.
Thirty years ago that’s exactly what Reece Roth did. Until tragedy shattered his life and ripped away his destiny.
Now God has drawn Reece out of the shadows to fulfill a prophecy spoken over him three decades ago. A prophecy about four warriors with the potential to change the world . . . if Reece will face his deepest regret and train them. 
They gather at a secluded and mysterious ranch deep in the mountains of Colorado, where they will learn to see the spiritual world around them with stunning clarity. And how to step into the supernatural as powerfully as anyone in the Bible did.
The four have a destiny to battle for a freedom even Reece doesn’t fully fathom. But they have an enemy hell-bent on destroying them as and he'll stop at nothing to keep them from their quest for true freedom and the coming battle of souls.

      Do not read this book lightly. It has amazing spiritual depth to it and if you allow your eyes to be opened as you read, this book can change your life. The characters are richly written and they are each on a path to find themselves and to find healing from their pasts. We follow them through this as they are trained in finding out how to help bring healing to others and in the process experience healing themselves. Discovering various ways and stages that they need to go through to discover God's plans for their lives is just part of what happens. We also see the past opened up, follow 4 different characters, Brandon, Dana, Marcus and Reece, and experience the questions as they do and feel the answers as they come. I read this in the car on a trip and I kept reading parts aloud as we drove along because I couldn't keep it to myself. I had to be careful not to give too much away, but sections of this book are so amazing that they had to be spoken. I truly hope that this book gets read, discussed and passed around - alot! It has the potential to be the next "The Shack" just because it should get people talking to each other about the things of God, the things of the Spirit and the things He wants to do in our lives if we will let Him. This book is in my top 10 of the year and I am not even close to being done reading this year, I just guarantee that there are not enough books in the world to knock this one out of that list. Thank you Jim Rubart.
