The story seemed slow after the initial blast of drama, then it seemed like it might be a YA novel.
THEN... I had to grab my pencil and start underlying. Besides being an exciting story, this is a brilliant allegory of the two parallel kingdoms in which we live: the physical and spiritual - according to Jesus.
How did I miss His references to "seeing with spiritual eyes?" Somewhere along my 40-year journey with Jesus, I started learning "about" Him, doing things "for" Him. I forgot about being "indwelt by" Him, in the spirit realm. Inside "me."
I feel I've been born again, again.
Can't wait to read the next book in the series. So grateful for Ted Dekker's insights and writing.
