The Spell

Sunday, December 5, 2010
“Hate your enemies with your whole heart and if a man smite you on the check, smash him on the other.”

Book: The Spell by Bill Myers, Tyndale House Publishers, 1995
Genre: Supernatural
Target Audience: Boys and Girls 13-18
Subjects: Satanism, Lust, Relationships with Parents, Salvation
Summary: Terrified. That’s the only word to describe how Rebecca feels. She has been assured by Z that the only power the Satanists have over her is the power she gives them through her fear. But the notes saying the spell has been cast, the dead rat hanging in her locker, the threatening phone calls, and the vandalism have left her literally shaking in fear. And perhaps she does have reason to fear…
Notes: Continuing the story from the first two books, Rebecca and Scott have another run-in with the members of the Society who are jealous of the attention Rebecca and Scott have been getting. The leaders are quite serious about their beliefs and are willing to do whatever it takes to get what they want. They are not afraid to use forces of evil to accomplish their goals. In this book, Rebecca is their target while Scott experiences a different kind of struggle – struggle against the flesh. An attractive girl at school has targeted him and isn’t afraid to use her body to get what she wants. Scott wants to avoid temptation but this temptation comes in a package so pleasing to the eye that he has to learn a hard lesson about it. Just as the others in the series do, this book does a good job looking at how serious the occult is and how seriously powerful God is. This is the 3rd book in the Forbidden Doors series.  
Recommendation Scale: 5/5

1 John 4:4 - You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.
