Book Review: Soul’s Gate


What if you could travel inside another person’s soul? To battle for them. To be part of Jesus healing their deepest wounds. To help set them free to step boldly into their divinely designed future.

Thirty years ago that’s exactly what Reece Roth did. Until tragedy shattered his life and ripped away his future.

Now God has drawn Reece out of the shadows to fulfill a prophecy spoken over him three decades ago. A prophecy about four warriors with the potential to change the world . . . if Reece will face his deepest regret and teach them what he has learned.

They gather at a secluded and mysterious ranch deep in the mountains of Colorado, where they will learn to see the spiritual world around them with stunning clarity—and how to step into the supernatural.

Their training is only the beginning. The four have a destiny to pursue a freedom even Reece doesn’t fully fathom. But they have an enemy hell-bent on destroying them and he’ll stop at nothing to keep them from their quest for true freedom and the coming battle of souls.

My Review:

For me, this book was far more personal than I expected it to be. But (be jealous) I’ve had the chance to see James Rubart keynote several times and heard the stories behind some of the main themes in Soul’s Gate. For me, that greatly enriched the book and thus made some things hit me even harder.

This book captures the heart of who James Rubart is: a man of action. A man who will jump off a cliff and build wings on the way down. He’s lived a live of adventure and action that inspires me beyond simply wanting to be published. We must live a good story in order to tell a good story.

In Soul’s Gate, Reece and his warriors must act without hesitation. These are real characters with every-day human problems, but they push through for what is right and true.

This book is unlike any other. For me, it didn’t read like normal fiction (because it was enhanced by the connections I made with James’ keynote addresses and movie references) — it was far better. The writing is pristine, the characters unique and memorable, the plot complex. James never settles for the status quo, which is why his books will change lives and echo through the generations.

Pick up a copy and share it with a friend. Check out other blogger reviews on Soul’s Gate if you don’t believe me.
