Miriam Clifford's Gatekeeper: Writing the Wrongs Right does just that, a written exploration of the wrongs of our "mind spam" and "bondage" that preclude us from reaching higher levels of spiritual rebirth as God's creations. Gatekeeper stimulates deep thought and personal examination, urging us to measure our lives, thoughts, and motives, calling attention to that which is out of order. Ideally, we are to examine whether our faith is "modest" or "immense," and whether or not we approach our relationship with God with a "whole heart." It inspires us to realize that while the works of heaven may be finished, our work continues, approaching faith in a dynamic, personal, specific way, rather than in merely a static and general way. Written from the standpoint of a born Atheist who spent her life searching for God and a deeper understanding of religion, Clifford writes for the modern reader, addressing our modern concerns rather than giving us a re-packaged and re-paraphrased variation on other spiritual writings and self-help "junk" on the market. Clifford is revolutionary in her ability to assess and address the needs of the modern reader by challenging, pushing, and forcing personal growth through her atypical assessment of religion. It is powerfully insightful and stimulates real and permanent growth, helping the reader to "be present and move forward with Jesus." Clifford is one who likes "straight talk" and is "not motivated by publishing deals, tenures, or academic approval/ recognition," not censoring the information or language of Gatekeeper to "meet someone else's notion of proper," creating a challenging and stimulating tool for real growth, rather than pandering to the easy path. Clifford urges us that "2011 is the year to erase your systematic programmed past state of mind" and "renew your mind in the power of the Word." Gatekeeper is an excellent tool for any modern believer or disbeliever who is attempting to define his/her relationship with God in a progressive world, while dealing with primarily static texts and conceptions of spirituality; the world has changed and so must our approach to faith. By teaching us how to create a "sensational" life, find "deep joy" in every situation, and escape misery and suffering, we are finally capable of a modern relationship with God and the ability to achieve "absolute freedom."
