Publisher's Description

His assignment from Satan was to kill Pastor Craig Groeschel. Today he sits on the front row of that pastor’s church.

For twenty years of his life, Michael Leehan lived and worked for Satan. At age 33, he made a decision to serve the darkness that he felt had consumed his life, but instead of making things easier, it began a steeper downward spiral replete with ritualistic cuttings, blood sacrifices, jail time, job loss, estrangement from his friends and family, and actual murderous assignments from Satan himself.

Ascent from Darkness relates Michael’s gripping, real-life encounters, enslavement to the powers of darkness, and miraculous emancipation from the clutches of the Enemy.

For anyone who has ever struggled with spiritual warfare, addiction, depression, or hopelessness, Michael’s story is a bold reminder of the redemptive truth of the gospel that anyone—even a soldier of Satan—can be transformed and used for the glory of God.

Now a servant of Christ, Michael exhibits the power of God’s relentless love and offers readers the chance to experience their own ascent into God’s glorious light.

Author Info

Michael Leehan is an evangelist and minister, but he's also finally a free man. Once enslaved to the dark forces of this world he now lives each day in devotion and service to God through Solus Christus Ministries, a nonprofit organization that offers hope and redemption through the power of God's love, truth, and knowledge of His Word. This is his first book.

Publisher's Description

The redemptive story of one man's agonizing journey from the depths of Satanism to a radical new life in Christ.

A life of difficulty and disappointment set 33-three 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

    As another who has been on the dark side, I can say the Satanic Bible by Anton LaVey is pure psychology. One exact excerpt "If God is alive he better be on Medicare." Yes I received my newsletter, The Cloven Hoof and did communicate with LaVey.

    He(author) states a man was sentenced to death and a few years later, the court system carried it out. That isn't the law of the justice system. It takes many years of appeals. God has saved me and you need to take this book with a grain of salt. I have been there, if you have not, don't take it literally. I am a child of God. Even Christians commit sin such as the sex this author claims he pursued AFTER converting to Satanism. The "devil doesn't make them do it", as Flip Wilson would say, our poor decisions do. Spiritual warfare is not when two people "stare" each other down in a room (pg 65 3rd paragraph). Spiritual Warfare belongs to the Supreme God in the strong name of my Savior, Jesus Christ.

    Michael Leehan, Ex-satanist now, a mighty man of God! I was fascinated with this book from the first page. The first two chapter was the creepiest part of Michael's life, where he embraces satanism. I wasn't able to sleep, it was like, it keeps on flashing no my mind on how he became a satanist. But, this book has brought hope and revelation to all who reads... It will transform you, inspire you, and make you cry. The part that really made in cry was when Leehan has to commit suicide and he was thinking that God is completely lost sight of him. I had to admit that I was a Luke-Warm Christian, this book shots me to head, an eye opener to me. If you don't have a strong faith as Christian... I would have to say, don't read this until you are...

    "Remember, no matter how badly you think you've sinned or what kind of mess you may have made of your life, it probably pales in comparison to mine. Never give up, never lose hope. Jesus Christ specializes in fixing broken messes just like us." I love this line, really true to my life. This book unlocks the mystery of evil and darkness that plagues this earth. This book also reveals the mystery of satanism and evil activities in this world! The Christian has nothing to fear of, our God is faithful and true, His love is plentiful, and He is with us. Pick this book! You have to read it now!

    Ascent from Darkness

    Wow! This was an intense read and an unbelievable story_but I DO believe it! This first person narrative makes you marvel at the depths a man can sink to when he turns to the forces of evil for power and control. At his wits end over family strife and relationship troubles, Leehan turns to drugs and alcohol for comfort, and ends up having a near death experience in the process. As he lay dying, he hears a voice call out to him telling him he has much left to do. It is a voice that soothes and comforts him as the doctors fight to save his life. And he is saved_bodily. However, his soul is anything but saved. What follows is a fascinating, highly disturbing look inside the world of Satanism and how the forces of evil use this man to do their heinous bidding. And just when you think this man is doomed_in steps God. An amazing story of redemption and how one man really did go from being a Soldier of Satan to a Warrior for God. I received this book from the publisher in exchange for a fair, unbiased review.

    I really feel this book is a must read for Christians...

    Learn how to be victorious over evil! I could have spent much more time listening to him. His deep understanding of this often misunderstood issue was very insightful. The book is very practical and easy to understand. It's step by step instructions give readers the tools needed to face the enemy head on. I'm going to with this one because of the very helpful instructions on how to deal with this subject.This one is the best and I do recommand this book to all who want to understand what is going on and what to do about it.t is an invaluable resource for any Christian. But I think this book would be especially valuable to a new believer.

    We are in a real battle people! It's time we learn about our enemy! Thanks for a great book! I love this book. I love to read it and reread it. I just wanted to see what it was about. It is a must read for every believer out there. Christians of all experience levels and backgrounds will benefit from reading this book. The book reads quickly and easily because there is not any extra opinions or information. The material is well developed but to the point. This book took me by storm! There is so much to learn about the supernatural. It mentions that not much takes place in the spirit realm without our taking some risks. This book is just as spectacular as his lectures, and other media. Explained in explicit detail and so logical to follow it all makes so much sense.

    It's a must read for any person who believes in Angels and an enlightening read for those or are not sure yet.

    This book will make you brave, This book will set you free as well...
