Why did I pick this up? Because I have read all of James’ books and enjoyed them all and they have made me look at my spiritual life and decide that there are things I need to change.
What is the story? The four members of the Warriors Riding group are each facing challenges in their lives some of them are very subtle and some of them are very scary. They are fighting against a spirit that many people who call themselves Christians would not have a problem with. Therefore there is constant tension among themselves, within the group even and other Christians. They confront each other and others in the Church who are comfortable with the spirit they are fighting against.
Did I like it? Yes, I believe that the spirit they are fighting is a problem in the church. I enjoyed the interaction between the characters and the spiritual content also, as it made me think about my own life.
What is with the title of the review? I have thought of several titles for this post, some of them would give away too much of the plot and some of them would ignore a firestorm of comments from people on every side of the issue.
