I felt the writing sounded pretentious, as in trying to persuade readers she is an expert in her field, repeatedly referencing former witch, medium, and ghost hunter as if trying to convince us and herself, by her spooky childhood and internet occult involvement.
The book shares no new knowledge and seems to contain information Kristine rehashed already on the market. There were many fragmented sentences and misused words, which concerns me being a product of a professional publishing house. The book lacked flow and was repetitious; bouncing her experiences through the three spiritual hats she wore. Even at the end of the book, it seemed the publishers were adding filler material after Chapter 28 to stretch the book beyond 200 pages.
I feel she has an interesting story that would have benefited from a well experience ghostwriter to bring it to life and make it a more enjoyable read.
All I can say is THANK YOU KRISTINE FOR WRITING THIS BOOK!
As a Pagan for over 30 years, I can honestly offer my opinion she was a dabbler and what she described in her book, such as it is, is superficial and doesn't give me the impression she ever did some serious, actual study. This is the usual everything not of the Bible is evil and deceptions of Satan so go to my "loving" God's arms either-or message that some self righteous, intolerant forms of Christianity teach.
Whether or not she actually was as she claims in this book I don't know. I've read too many Christian books of this type that turned out to be lies to believe at face value what she claims. Everything seems so superficial, shallow, something from a teenager or simpleton, and to me it just doesn't`feel on the level.
If she's happy being Christian, good for her. But the old garbage of everything else being of Satan claim is one I disagree with.
She gave up her persuit of the occult until her husband decided to forsake his Christian faith. This gave her an excuse to search for a better way. She stopped praying & reading her Bible which caused her to drift away from God, become decieved, & blinded by Satan & fall into sin. She had a rebellious & hard heart & stopped attending church; thereby, cutting herself off from the fellowship of other believers who could have offered her strength, encouragement, & helped to strengthen her faith. She does state that Satan wanted her isolated from her brothers & sisters in Christ & to feel involnerable to sin. She states that she was alone, discoureaged & depressed which are all tools used by Satan to cause doubt & drive a person away from God.Read more ›
