Overview

"Pharmakeia (far-mak-i-ah) Greek: the power of witchcraft/sorcery manifested in drug addiction.

Throughout history drugs were used with the specific intent of accessing the spirit realm. Today, unknown to most, dark spirits continue to patrol the perimeter seeking an entrance to the souls of all who partake of Pharmakeia.

College Freshman Joshua Mitchell's discovery of a shocking family secret creates a tremendous burden. Its weight proves too much for him to bear and the results are absolutely tragic. Meanwhile, his childhood friend, Ashley Wells has begun to feel she is losing a battle of her own, unable to let go of the pain of that fateful night. Both choose to fight past and present demons of addiction by dedicating their seemingly broken lives to helping others.

Behind it all, in the realm of the unseen, the Ruler of Darkness meets with demonic lords to discuss a threat to one of their greatest weapons. "Even as Pharmakeia reigns on many nations, there is an attempt to expose our campaign. We must offer our temptations with the greatest cunning. And remember… the best lie is one told softly."

Meet the Author

Upon beginning his career as a chemical dependency counselor Michael Douglas Gray was identified as gifted and passionate. Michael accumulated a wealth of experience while working with adolescents and adults. Specializing in family reunification and crisis intervention he touched hundreds of lives for the better. It was the horrific and tragic death of a client´s child combined with an unexpected sudden personal loss that led him on a downward spiral landing on skid row in Los Angeles, California. A very difficult and dangerous place. From 2001 until 2008 Michael battled the cruel realities of homelessness, depression, and addiction. In 2006, he entered a mission. There his relationship with God and hope of restoration were renewed. Eventually Michael enrolled in a writer´s workshop given by Urban Possibilities a non-profit agency. His dream of writing was resurrected when poetry and other work he had created was selected for publication. With a fresh confidence in God´s faithfulness in spite of self-inflicted circumstances Michael continued to write with deep enthusiasm. Initially, he used public library computers to research and write his novel. On a limited fixed income he saved what money he could, purchased a laptop, a self-publishing package, and got a small apartment. If you´ve seen anything of skid row anywhere you know that none of this would of been possible without God. Michael realized that the same loss and trauma that had created a vulnerability to substance abuse in his own life was a very common theme among those struggling with addiction everywhere. Revelations of the activity in the spirit realm, his gifted counseling skills, and the lessons taught by the harshrealities of addiction culminated in the compelling pages of Pharmakeia: The True Power of Addiction Lies in the Unseen. The messages of this book are deeply insightful and healing. Historical facts and contemporary trends are powerfully intertwined as the characters move from bondage through deliverance to service. Pharmakeia is truly meant for anyone who is experiencing addiction in their own life or has experienced it through the life of a friend or loved one.
