Wednesday, December 29, 2010

`”There is a spirit – the soul of a deceased human – that is trapped in a mansion across town. It desperately wants to be free, to reach its resting place, but it cannot do so on its own. It needs your help.”

Book: The Haunting by Bill Myers, Tyndale House Publishers, 1995
Genre: Supernatural/Realistic Fiction
Target Audience: Boys and Girls 13+
Subjects: Occult, Salvation, Spiritual Warfare
Summary: A middle of the night visitor sets off a chain of events that lead to doubts, belief and near disaster for Rebecca, Scotty and Ryan. “Ascension Lady”, the leader of the local occult movement has come to ask Rebecca for help in freeing a trapped soul. More specifically, she wants her to come to an old mansion known to be haunted by the ghost of a young girl murdered there, and participate in a séance. The more Rebecca looks into it, the more she doubts she own beliefs, putting her in a scary position for spiritual warfare.
Notes: This book dives into the theory of ghosts and ultimately discusses how you can believe the Bible to be 100% truth. It also gets into unforgiveness and the consequences of that. It gets quite intense, scary and graphic at a couple of points but as with the others in the series, it clearly communicates Biblical truth. At the end, as with the others, it also includes a note to readers about spiritual warfare and the occult, as well as a list of verses referenced in the story. This is the 4th book in the Forbidden Doors series.
Recommendation Scale: 5/5
Reviewer: J:-)mi

Hebrews 9:27 – It is destined that men die only once and after that comes judgment.
