You need to read this book. If I could buy everyone I know a copy, I would. I can’t.
But I’m going to buy somebody one. Details below on how you can win it.
Ascent From Darkness is Michael Leehan’s story, and I can almost guarantee you’ve never heard or read a story like this one.
Ascent from Darkness will remove blinders. If you’re a Christian, it will equip you. If you’re a Satanist, it will show you what’s really going on. (I know you think you know, but I dare you to read it.) If you’re an atheist, or of another faith/religion, it will challenge you and – hopefully – give you the courage to ask some hard questions.
Michael gave himself to the devil as a young man in a lot of pain. He tells a very honest story of the pleasure and power he got from Satanism. He details what he remembers of rituals and spiritual encounters, assignments, and experiences. He writes candidly about the struggle that developed and deepened within him, about the times he knew he was wrong but chose pleasure and power and submission to darkness.
The stories he tells along the way will change you because they will change the way you see the world. Some of it is almost too extraordinary to believe.
Like the assignment to murder Pastor Craig Groeschel, as mentioned in the video below. The first time I saw it I thought, “Okay. He thought about it, maybe formed a loose plan, but whatever.” Truth: he spent a year studying the security at that church until he was given the date that the assignment was to be carried out. He knew exactly how to do it. As he sat, armed, in the lobby that morning he was certain he wouldn’t be alive for more than a couple more hours.
A dozen times I thought it couldn’t get any worse for Michael, but it kept getting worse. And as I finished each chapter I thought, “Okay, here comes the turn-around,” but it kept not coming.
Then, finally, I cried through the last chapter of the book. Michael describes how the Father encountered him, and pulled him from the deepest darkness a human being could experience on earth. (I don’t even mean I was sniffling and teary-eyed: I pretty much sobbed.) Michael’s deliverance is an amazing lesson/reminder of God’s amazing power and love.
If you are a passionate believer, read this book: It will encourage and equip you. If you are a new or lukewarm believer, read this book: It will inspire and ground you. If you are a Satanist, it will teach and free you. If you are an atheist, Muslim, Hindu, Buddist, etc., it will challenge you.
I don’t know how anyone could come away from Michael Leehan’s story unchanged. The way you see the world, God, evil, religion, and your faith – whatever it is – will be rocked.
