Memory's Door by James L. Rubart

In January I wrote about Soul's Gate by James Rubart.  It rocked my world, gave me all kinds of new things to think about and started me down a path of examining my identity and my beliefs about the power I have in Christ.  In short, I loved every page.  So, when I saw that the next book in the series, Memory's Door was available to be reviewed, I was excited.  I have to admit, though, that I was also cautious with my expectations.  I have, many times, gotten hooked on the first book in a series, only to be sorely disappointed by the sequel.  Well, that was certainly not the case this time!

Memory's Door is every bit as action packed, fast paced and well written as Soul's Gate.  It is a continuation of the story of Soul's Gate where Reece Roth leads the prophesied four warriors into their destiny, one of entering people's souls and setting them free from the inside out.  These four are continuing to learn how to believe how powerful they truly are in the midst of their battles for others' freedom.

In this book, I saw so clearly how the enemy deceives us with his lies.  Through the situations in the story, Rubart gives relevant examples of the ways Satan takes facts of our circumstances and weaves them into deceptions that look like absolute reality.  They actually are only his deceptions, but they convince us of the "what ifs" as though they've already occurred.  He also painted a picture of just how powerless the enemy is, until we agree with his deception and give life to his suggestions.

I loved this book as much as I loved the first, and I can't wait for the next one.  Definitely one I would recommend.  

I received this book from Booksneeze in exchange for my honest opinion.
