    Jim is an author who comes up with mind-twisting plots and what-ifs. Soul's Gate was no exception. The characters were interesting, but what grabbed me and is staying with me after closing the book is the idea that I want God to use me in a way like He did the characters. Imagine four people who fulfill an old prophecy. They are to come together to bring freedom to those who are in bondage. They have to start with themselves...and that means jumping in to other people's souls -- with permission -- to do warfare for them. Jim admits in an author note, that may not be possible. But so many other things in the book come straight from the Bible. Bottom line, I closed the book with a cry in my heart and hunger to be used by God in fresh, new, mighty ways to bring His freedom to this world. Definitely a book that can impact readers as much as Frank Peretti's This Present Darkness.

    Soul’s Gate by James Rubart

    Reece Roth has received a prophecy that he will teach four persons to fight for the hearts of others by entering into their souls. They will wage spiritual warfare and bring freedom to those oppressed by the enemy. Now he must convince the four of that calling. Dana, Brandon and Marcus seem willing, but what of the fourth? This task is not without many dangers, as Reece well knows. As his protégés become stronger, the enemy takes notice and their families and Reece come under attack. Are Dana, Marcus and Brandon ready to take on the challenge to stand against the enemy and deliver Reece?
    James Rubart writes an intriguing novel based on the premise that spiritual warfare can be waged inside a person’s soul. Rubart admits that this possibility doesn’t really exist, but it makes for an interesting read. This novel reminded me a lot of his novel Rooms, which I found interesting as well. His style is straightforward and the plot moves along, although I found the beginning of the novel to be confusing when he was introducing multiple characters at once. It didn’t help that for some reason the copy I received from the publisher would not display the first page of each chapter on my nook. As I continued to read, I became more involved in the plot and found myself challenged to spend more time in prayer. This story, because it is fiction, may not be found to be doctrinally mainline, but it does challenge the reader not to settle for a blasé faith. If you enjoyed Peretti’s Piercing the Darkness novel, you will enjoy this one, too. The publisher gave me a free copy and this is my honest opinion.

    This is my first James Rubart book and it will definitely Not be

    This is my first James Rubart book and it will definitely Not be my last. Soul's Gate is captivating and suspenseful. We get mystical battle scenes mixed in with some Biblical scriptures. I like Christian fiction writers who stick with their storyline without categorizing other faiths and religious groups.

    Reece Roth has an ability to enter into a person's soul. He invited four friends to go on a religious retreat with him. Then he started training them to become spiritual warriors. They are to fulfill a prophesy where they will fight against evil. But first they have to be free themselves.

    I highly recommend this book. It is a very entertaining book that will leave us thinking about how we live and deal with the evils in our lives and free ourselves from it.

    I got this book free from Booksneeze in exchange for an honest review

    I was a bit skeptical about Soul’s Gate when I read the the summary that talked about people jumping into other people’s souls. It seemed a bit out there to me, as well as being a bit over-the-top with the spiritual warfare side of things. I was pleasantly surprised. While Souls’ Gate does have a lot of spiritual warfare going on, the book is just as much about healing and freedom as anything else.

    Rubart also gives a fairly good read–it’s not going to be a classic, but it’s a gripping story. It presents some far-out ideas (like traveling into someone’s soul–which the author doesn’t claim to be possible) rooted in a faith in which all things are possible through Christ. And while the book is good fiction, it made me think about real faith things in my life–like finding the places where I need healing yet and the parts of my soul that I maybe haven’t fully turned over to God.

    Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze® book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
