Cliff Montgomery had intensely studied and written about primitive peoples throughout the world. He had seen bizarre rituals meant to appease various gods, and had witnessed supernatural events supposedly caused by these gods. Although intrigued, he remained an agnostic-atheist. He didn't think the spirit world existed, and he didn't care. Not until that bizarre world entered his own. A tragic accident had stolen his beloved wife from him decades earlier, and now cancer was about to take his life. Suddenly the fear of what would happen to him after that flat-line moment overwhelmed him. Reincarnation, enlightenment, heaven, hell, it all became a cesspool of words in his mind. After that moment, he had to end up where HE wanted to end up, and that was together with his wife again. But he knew her "karma" was completely different than his. If the God that his wife loved actually existed, He was capable of keeping them apart, and would do so. His window of opportunity to discover the truth, and alter the outcome, was rapidly running out.
Jack Watchman knew the truth, and he knew God. But he disliked how religion and tradition distorted the knowledge of God. And he disliked Cliff Montgomery. These two opposing world views were about to collide.
The author leads a tortured soul through the mine fields of religion and the spirit world in order to reveal the mysteries of life after death. In an intriguing and entertaining fashion, he combines the skepticism of an atheist with the understanding of a true believer. He teaches all who are willing to learn how to find God on their own, without religion, and without dependency on others. As a former atheist, the author mocked and belittled religious people. But that godless mindset was changed by a challenge; to visit a church where miracles were taking place. He saw no miracles, even though they were happening around him, but he entertained the thought that his own beliefs could be wrong. Once he sought the truth . . .

I finished reading this book and was kind of sorry it had ended. But, because it was somewhat open ended, there is always the possibility that there might be another book with the same characters touching on other points of interest. There are a lot of unseen warring factors going on in the world right now and I believe John has a really good handle on how to present them to us lay persons who can use simple explanations to help us understand. I have been a Christian for a good number of years and I still gleaned understanding from the way he presented salvation. It will definitely come in handy when I am talking to others about it. I also liked that the characters were pretty much down to earth everyday people. A couple of them were quite well off financially, others not so much. And don't we all have lives with folks on both end of the spectrum in them? And having so many examples of things we don't understand, such as walking on coals, somewhat explained as part of a spiritual world different from mine put me on a whole different track of thinking. And that is one of the things I really liked about this book-it made me think outside my box-yes it is a fictional book with a story to tell, but there is oh so much truth there also. All in all I give this one two thumbs up for Christian education...in my opinion, well worth the read.
★★★★★ Just read it!
