The Influence | [Matthew John Slick]

The Influence

Mark is in his garden, grieving and depressed over the unexplained death of his son and without knowing it, is almost coaxed by a demon into committing suicide. But, at the last moment, Sotare, an angel, rescues him and is later permitted to appear to Mark in the Garden. The two dialogue about God, life, death, good, evil, the spiritual realm, and the nature of truth. However, all is not well. The demons are watching and powerful evil forces are sent to kill and destroy those who are close to Mark and those who are praying for him.

Publisher's Summary

Mark is in his garden, grieving and depressed over the unexplained death of his son and without knowing it, is almost coaxed by a demon into committing suicide. But, at the last moment, Sotare, an angel, rescues him and is later permitted to appear to Mark in the Garden. The two dialogue about God, life, death, good, evil, the spiritual realm, and the nature of truth. However, all is not well. The demons are watching and powerful evil forces are sent to kill and destroy those who are close to Mark and those who are praying for him. As Sotare teaches Mark, he is given answers to his questions - but they do not come easily. He must face his greatest challenge in order to learn his greatest lesson. The battle over Mark unfolds in both the spiritual and physical worlds as angels are sent to battle against the evil forces that are seeking to destroy. True victory is never easy.

    I am a glass artist and while I create, I listen to books. each creation has memory of one listened to. I love Jesus and my family.

    "Excellent! must read 4 insight in spiritual realm!"
    If you could sum up The Influence in three words, what would they be?

    Insightful spiritual truth!

    This is a must read for anyone who wants to understand the call of God and the spiritual realm activities! Many deceptions take place in our world but this book breaths life and brings a great reminder of the daily battle over our souls and who is the ultimate power!

    Story
    "Spiritual Warfare fiction needs to be a thing!"

    Not since The Screwtape Letters have I read such a biblically accurate tale of the behind the scenes battle for our souls.

    This story is fiction, and yet it holds more truth than some of those popular so-called non-fiction near-death experience books (such as The Shack and other such new age garbage).

    Very good book. Very captivating story and very insightful. I don't think I will ever think of what may be around me the same way again. :-)

    Story
    "Want a deeper understanding?"
    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    This was a great book. I could not wait to finish it.


    Any additional comments?

    Loved it! This book really brought me a deeper appreciation and awareness of the spiritual world. I realize how much more I need to pray, when and about what. If I want to be protected, I need to ask.
