From Publishers Weekly
'By his own admission, the author is taking the spiritual warfare novel up a few notches from his previous book (Rooms) with a plot that involves entering and warring for the souls of other people and showing the path to spiritual freedom. References in the story line to sci-fi movies helps tie biblical references to bending time and space in order to enter souls. A trio of young people follows a wounded leader named Reece to a retreat in the mountains where he teaches them how to be warriors for souls and how to enter souls to set them free. The three must overcome their own demons, as must Reece, on the way to the final lesson. Readers with high blood pressure or heart conditions be warned: this is a seriously heart-thumping and satisfying read that goes to the edge, jumps off, and “builds wings on the way down.” (Publishers Weekly)

I received this book free in exchange for my honest opinion
The only drawback about this book is that it wanders a bit farther into mystical than I would like. While the author freely admits at the end of the book that he does not believe it is possible to travel into the soul of another and battle there, that is the HUGE premise of this book. It is a wonderful thought, but ultimately our soul battles are our own.
The characters are great, the hurts that must be overcome are relateable (is that even a word?!) and you will probably find yourself in one of them. (Although I have to admit that the way I pictured them was NOTHING like the actors in the above book trailer.) It was a good read, and a great reminder that we are all called to battle the forces of evil, we all have the power of Christ that we can use during these battles, and ultimately the battle has already been won!
Thanks to Thomas Nelson for the preview copy of this book! All thoughts and opinions are my own.
I'm a fan of James Rubart's first book, Rooms, so I was happy to review his second book, Soul's Gate. It's important that readers remember that these books are fantasy, and they ought not to consider the content literally.
Soul's Gate is a book about traveling inside another person's soul and engaging in spiritual warefare. It's about supernatural travel and a spiritual world that I've never considered before. In the book, Reece Roth mentors three others when they gather at a cabin in the mountains of Colorado. Dana, Brandon, and Marcus begin training that is a spiritual journey through their own past, a process of facing their deepest wounds, and a venture into their own souls.
This work of fiction invites the reader to consider what it would be like to be able to enter the souls of others. It isn't about considering whether or not it's supported Biblically. It's fiction. It might be easy to become distracted with an inner debate about whether or not the book is Biblical and miss the point of considering the spiritual battle for our own souls. It does a good job raising awareness of the importance of interceding in prayer, and it battling the forces of darkness. However, although the characters in the book embrace the concept after Reece convinces them there is Biblical support, transportation into the souls of others is not addressed in the Bible.
For me, there was something eerie about the idea. The plot had plenty of suspense and edge of the seat action. From a writing standpoint, it's well done and Rubart does a great job of storytelling.Read more ›
Brandon is The Song that is out of tune. Dana is The Leader who refuses to lead. Marcus is The Teacher so consumed with regret that he's lost his teaching plan. Reese must take them, break them, heal them, restore them, and prepare them for a task that many of us either consider pure fantasy, or are attracted to in an unhealthy manner. And he has four days to do it.
Throughout the training, and following their graduation, the spiritual warriors find out more about one another, and themselves, than they had ever known. You will find yourself joining them in prayer, and in battle, as this book opens your eyes to the very real spiritual battles that take place all around us, every day. The question is . . . will you join the battle, or become a deserter?
This is Book One of the series, and I'm seriously looking forward to the next installment!
