Ascent From Darkness - My Review

I have recently joined Booksneeze, sponsored by Thomas Nelson Publishers. The deal is you get a free book, of your choosing, read it and then provide a review. So . . . . . . .

Here is the description of the book: 
"A life of difficulty and disappointment set 33-year old Michael Leehan up for the worst decision of his life—to make a deal with the Devil to follow and serve him. Practicing the dark arts that include ritualistic cuttings and blood sacrifices, while fine tuning his manipulation and control skills, Michael launched into a twenty year downward spiral that included job loss and detachment from loved ones, and even jail time.
But God had another plan that included a group of Christian men to love him and pray for him—even when it became evident his assignment from Satan was to kill their pastor, Craig Groeschel.
The life Michael Leehan lives today is an incredible testimony of the transforming power of God's mercy and grace, but is also a wakeup call to the church to be fully aware of the spiritual war that is going on all around them, and to the ultimate battle for their souls.
"I am sending you to open their eyes and turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me." Acts 26:18"
It truly was an eye opener as to how easy it is to become overtaken by Satan and his minions. It took Michael a long time to finally break free. He was literally hours away from death before Satan finally let loose. Michael had many people praying for him - the power of prayer is amazing! - and they did not give up. They did not turn their back on him when they found out the truly overwhelming evil he was consumed with. The power that Satan can hold over a person is astounding. But in the end God wins out because nothing can permeate his light!
