    I found this book quite interesting as well as entertaining. It definitely kept my attention. It dealt with the spiritual forces that we battle against. This is the first of a series so this book does a good job of establishing each of the main characters. They were all extremely different and likeable. They each have their own struggles that they are battling and I loved how they helped each other with their struggles. The whole battling inside someone's soul was strange but well done. I am glad that the author made a point in the end to say he doesn't believe that someone can actually enter someone else's soul. If you like reading fantasy, adventure and the spiritual realm, then you will enjoy this. I really enjoyed the book and I look forward to reading the others in the series.

    I received this book free from booksneeze.com in exchange for my review.

    What an amazing novel. Every once and a while one comes along that just takes your breath away. This is one of those novels.

    What would it be like if we Christians lived today with the same strength and power we read the early Christians had? What if we entered into spiritual warfare, if we lived in a spiritual realm we generally ignore?

    That is what Rubart writes about in this novel.

    Reece Roth is a veteran at spiritual warfare. He was a warrior thirty years ago, but then stepped away from battle when he faced personal tragedy. Now he is back in the war and is to train others in the ways of battle. The danger is immediate. There are evil beings who are out to stop Reece and his friends. These demons have destroyed before and now set their sights on Reece.

    This novel brings to our attention the seriousness of spiritual warfare and battling for the soul of another. Reece trains his friends to travel in the Spirit, to sense the spirit realm, and to enter into another's soul to do battle. Rubart admits at the end of the novel that he does not believe entering into another's soul is actually possible (this is fiction, after all).

    But the rest - such as paying attention to the spiritual realm so we can sense what is happening in others... Is that the level of Christianity we can and should be living?

    This novel is very thought provoking. I was glad to see an extensive Reading Group Guide because this novel would make for lively discussion.

    I highly recommend this book. Read it and then discuss it with a friend.

    I received a complimentary egalley of this book from the publisher for the purpose of this review.

    "Not afraid, for His armor is the best

    But even soldiers need a quiet place to rest."

    Twila Paris

    In James L. Rubart's new book, Soul's Gate, spiritual warfare has taken on dimensions of Biblical proportion. Which is as it should be. The quote in the fly-leaf of the book is one which Christians ought to take to heart:

    "There are two equal and opposite errors into which our race can fall about the devils. One is to disbelieve in their existence. The other is to believe, and to feel an excessive and unhealthy interest in them. They themselves are equally pleased by both errors."

    C.S. Lewis

    In Soul's Gate, Rubart contemplates what it would look like if a person could travel inside the soul of another human being, and wage war on their behalf "against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places" (Ephesians 6:12).

    Reese Roth could tell you, speaking from first-hand experience. That was his life, until tragedy struck and seemingly ended his destiny. But God is the God of the second chance, and Reese is being called upon to train four new warriors to carry on the work. Teach them to see the spirit world. Train them to enter the spirit world. And survive.

    Keep in mind . . . every war has TWO sides, and this is no exception. While the warriors train and prepare to carry the fight to the enemy in a way that even Reese has yet to fathom, the enemy is not twiddling his thumbs. He's determined to stop these young warriors. At any cost.

    Soul's Gate was a real eye-opener for me, as it reminded me that we really are in a spiritual battle, and Satan takes no prisoners. Fast-paced, grittily real, Soul's Gate has very engaging characters and a solid plot, as well as what I believe to be a sound spiritual foundation.

    James L. Rubart in his new book, "Soul's Gate" Book One in the Well Spring series published by Thomas Nelson takes us into the life of Reece Roth.

    From the back cover: "Every now and then we get a break from reality. A glimpse into the other world that is more real than the reality we live in 99 percent of our days. The Bible is about a world of demons and angels and great evil and even greater glory."

    What if you could travel inside another person's soul? To battle for them. To be part of Jesus healing their deepest wounds. To help set them free to step boldly into their divinely designed future.

    Thirty years ago that's exactly what Reece Roth did. Until tragedy shattered his life and ripped away his future.

    Now God has drawn Reece out of the shadows to fulfill a prophecy spoken over him three decades ago. A prophecy about four warriors with the potential to change the world . . . if Reece will face his deepest regret and teach them what he has learned.

    They gather at a secluded and mysterious ranch deep in the mountains of Colorado, where they will learn to see the spiritual world around them with stunning clarity—and how to step into the supernatural.

    Their training is only the beginning. The four have a destiny to pursue a freedom even Reece doesn't fully fathom. But they have an enemy hell-bent on destroying them and he'll stop at nothing to keep them from their quest for true freedom and the coming battle of souls.

    This means war! The battle is on! The battle for souls is the hardest and most vicious ever imagined and James L. Rubert has given us a story that shows just how hard and vicious it is. Mr. Rubert gives us the warriors, those that fight for men's souls. They are aided by the angelic host. Opposed to them, of course, are the demonic host. The reason why they are after the warriors is that if you take out those that do the fighting then the ones they are fighting for are lost and the demons win. "Soul's Gate" is a very exciting book. One that will keep you flipping pages trying to find out what will happen next just as fast as you can read and flip. Everything is Biblical and Mr. Rubart is at the top of his game with his writing. "Soul's Gate" will keep you asking questions, once you get the answer to one question it leads you to another and then another. This is an adrenaline laced adventure story. "Soul's Gate" is all about healing and freedom. The characters are extraordinary and well written and when you reach the ending you will let out a small cry of anguish contented sigh as we all have to wait until August of 2013 to find out what happens next. This is a just plain fun, exciting story that entertains as well as makes us think. Mr.Rubart has batted in a winner and I recommend this book highly. I am so looking forward to book two in this series.

    Warning: This is not a book that can be easily read in one sitting, nor should. Souls Gate is a book that takes digesting and although each bite is delectable, it will benefit the reader to take small bites and take the time to fully taste each morsel.

    As with each book that James Rubart has written the story is beyond amazing. Is he stretching reality? Of course, but the story is also packed with truth that bears considering and even contemplating. It's not a story where the author is trying to force a story around a message, rather it is a captivating tale that simply contains seeds of deep faith.

    Do I think you will enjoy this book? Well that depends on whether you are looking for a piece of fluff to pass the time, or a solid read that will stay with you for a long time. If it is the latter you are looking for, then yes, I believe you will love this book as much as I did.

    Definitely 5 Star Worthy.
