Ascent from Darkness

This book is the true story of a transformed life. I believe God transforms all believers, but sometimes those changes are a bit more subtle - especially for folks like me who came to know the Lord at a very tender age and live a fairly sheltered life. Sometimes its easy to forget God's transforming power. This book was an excellent reminder. It told the story of how Michael Leehan, a Satanist, came to a believing faith in Jesus Christ.

The darkness of Michael's life before Christ is such a contrast to the joy he feels now. It's a bit disturbing to read the details of his former dark life, but I felt what he shared was necessary to understand the delivery he has experienced.

Michael also has some disturbing things to say about some of the church-goers he met that were just "playing the game" versus the authentic Christians he met who had a palpable spiritual brightness about them.

The book is honestly told in first person and gives insight into true transformation and how no one is beyond God's reach.
