Ascent From Darkness Book Review

Book Review of Ascent From Darkness
  by Michael Leehan
"How Satan's Soldier Became God's Warrior"

     Ascent From Darkness is the true story of Michael Leehan's twenty year walk with satanism and his powerful deliverance into the hand of God.  Leehan came from a troubled and poor existence, with no support from Christian friends or family.  He choose to make a blood covenant with Satan, and become his devoted follower.  For two decades Leehan practiced the dark arts, including ritualistic cuttings, blood sacrifice, and many other things that were meant to disrupt Christian's walk with God.  Of course, he ends up divorced, estranged from his family, jobless and completely in the pit on despair and hopelessness.  But, all hope is not lost!  God places key people into Leehan's life that shape his path and future.  By prayer and unconditional love from others, Leehan's eyes finally begin to see God's light. This is the MOST powerful story of redemption that you WILL EVER encounter.
     I'm still overwhelmed by everything that encompassed this book.  Next to the Bible, it's probably the most consequential book I have ever read, for many reasons.  Most importantly, you will come to understand Satan's ploys; and how he uses people in his recruit to constantly combat and derail Christian's.  As a Christian you will become empowered and informed, and find yourself being the watch tower for your family.  This although comes with a price.  Satan, in no way, wants you to read this book.  He will begin to attack you - and you must be on alert and aware that he is.  So many other reviews I read about this book explain the same experience.  There is TRUTH within these pages, and by reading this information you will be disrupting Satan's plan for destruction and dominance.  Secondly, I found that this book is a bedrock for those troubled with addiction, bondage, strongholds, and much more.  God's power and radiance will cut through anything just by our seeking and requesting.  Leehan may seem as though he was out of God's reach or too far gone.  But, there God was the entire time, and scooped him up into the warmth of His wing.  God's glory and resplendent nature will leave you in awe.  Finally, I believe this book with strengthen and sharpen your need to pray and find compassion for others.  The essential people that God put in Leehan's life exhibited prayer, love, discernment, and God's truth.  This book will truly make you look at the people are you are ministering to in a different light.  I recommend this book with as many stars as possible to readers age 14 and up.  Parents please use discretion before passing this book on to your young adults.  Adults, read this book and immediately pass it on.  Let's not give Satan one more inch.
