    Pros: A very exciting real book that you wont be able to put down.
    Cons: Not many. First two chapters are kinda slow but after that it busts wide open.

    Summary: This was, in my opinion, an excellent book. It goes beyond your every day "story" book, and puts it into a reality that even you can relate to. It shows how demons will take advantage of you if you let sin manifest itself in your life. The power of ... read more

    Pros: Really helps understand spiritual warfare
    Cons: Not really something to be read at night or by kids

    Summary: Peretti's artistically woven tale rivals some of Steven King's work when discussing issues that are quite frightening. Peretti's books, however, offer the hope that comes with being a Christian so when you're done reading this book, you've been ... read more
