vicarage5 Stars Out Of 5spirit bridgeSeptember 11, 2014vicarageQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Had been looking forward to this book ever since I finished the last one. Great series! I can see openings where he could continue writing about these characters. I hope he will. I like the way he uses these characters to visualise the spiritual warfare we all go through, whether we realise it or not. The power of prayer and how we view our world is really brought to the fore. The struggle of settling for something good, (world view), as for reaching for what is best, (biblical view), gives the reader tools to analize their own world view. Looking forward to more books from Rubart!!!

I loved it. As with most book series, the first book, Soul's Gate, was my favorite. While Memory's Door and Spirit Bridge didn't rock me the way Soul's Gate did, they were both excellent.
In this book, the Warriors Riding continue their journey of traveling into the supernatural realms to set people free and fight the enemy from the inside out. Two new characters join in the fight, but the Warriors first have to decide if they are truly on their side.
As with the first two books in the series, I gained new perspective about the spirit realm and what the battle of the unseen looks like. I would recommend this book, but only after the first two books have been read.
I received this book from BookLook Bloggers in return for my honest opinion.

There are two new characters introduced in this book, Simon and Miyo. At first, it is unknown if they are evil, good or neutral in their dealings with the Warriors. Their roles are discovered, and the Warriors begin battle strategy. After another skirmish, the Warriors think they are done only to discover another huge battle with Zennon awaits them. This battle will take every single one of their skills working together. As the time for the fight looms closer, Zennon's hidden strategy is released and threatens to destroy all the Warriors have worked for. Some are deceived and unwilling to open their eyes while others climb to new heights with the Spirit. As in the other books, there are individuals who must deal with their sin before it is too late and the devil gets a foot hold by sneaking in through a seam in the soul.
While there are some great battle scenes, both in the spiritual realm and the physical realm, this last book in the trilogy fell a little flat for me. I can't really put my finger as to why, but the first two books I couldn't put down and immensely enjoyed, giving them both 5 stars. I did enjoy meeting the characters again with their individual nuances and personalities, their strengths and weaknesses. I also liked the visible manifestations of the power of prayer, faith and belief in God. I thought it great how the author pointed out how deceptive and sly the lies of Satan are and how to thwart them. I can recommend this entire series wholeheartedly as it will challenge how readers think about how they view themselves and their place in God's kingdom contrasted with how God views them. I look forward to see what this imaginative and talented author writes next.
Doc HiltonHorseshoe Bend, ARAge: 45-54Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5The Compelling Conclusion To The Well SpringJune 24, 2014Doc HiltonHorseshoe Bend, ARAge: 45-54Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5"It would be wonderful if we were all able to get our entire worth and identity from being a child of the King, but it doesn't always work that way."
The Spirit Bridge, page 19
Scripture teaches time and again that when we are at our weakest, then we are strong. Because it is in those moments of absolute surrender that the King of the universe can fully have His way with us.
What is left unsaid, or is at least tacitly ignored, is the converse of that statement; "When I am strong - in my own strength, in my own will, in my own agenda - that is when I am at my most vulnerable." And that "strength" usually arrives at the awards ceremony. You know, when you've beaten the competition, when you've reached (exceeded?) your goal, when you've crossed the final hurdle and are basking in the warmth of well-wishers and accolades.
The Warriors Riding are indeed, riding - riding the crest of the latest success in their spiritual battles. Yet, as in all types of warfare, there are casualties. The Song, Brandon Scott, sacrificed his most powerful, most personal part of his being - his voice - for The Leader. Now, with nothing to sing about, he is on the ropes. And on the edge of returning his Membership Card for The Warriors Riding. However, The Temple - Reece Roth - has discerned that The Song is critical in the next spiritual engagement. He just hasn't discerned whether Brandon will ever return.
The street-magician Simon is racing to remember his past before his ignorance obliterates his destiny, And Miyo, a brash young warrior with advanced knowledge of spiritual realities and supernatural armor even Reece doesn't know about, will be pivotal in the final war against The Warriors Riding.
If only the Warriors knew which side Simon and Miyo were truly on.
Probably the only draw-back with this book is, with so many references and nuances to the previous two books, it's difficult to promote it as "stand-alone." That having been said, James Rubart has crafted a series on spiritual warfare that is so mesmerizing, and yet so authentic in its scriptural basis, that you should really desire to obtain the complete series. With a Study Guide at the end of the book to launch small-group discussion, the conclusion of The Well Spring Series takes the reader deeper yet into an understanding of The Enemy, and echoes again the words of the powerful hymn by Martin Luther:
The prince of Darkness grim,
We tremble not for him;
His rage we can endure,
For lo, his doom is sure,
One little word shall fell him.
5 stars for a message that needs to be heard by James L. Rubart
