Book Review: Exile


I just fin­ished read­ing Exile by Rachel Starr Thom­son.

It is an intrigu­ing book about the bat­tle between good and evil in the spir­i­tu­al realm. It is fast paced and easy to read. I enjoyed it and found it to be thought pro­vok­ing. I like read­ing books that make me think. This one did just that.

There are ref­er­ences to Jesus leav­ing and send­ing the Holy Spir­it to the upper room and the dis­ci­ples get­ting filled with the Holy Spir­it and speak­ing in tongues. The One­ness is sup­posed to be the indwelling of the Holy Spir­it in the­se spe­cial peo­ple.

The One­ness is a secret group of peo­ple that bat­tle the forces of evil while the rest of us go about our busi­ness unaware.  That is such a reflec­tion of what is hap­pen­ing in our soci­ety right now! The only way to fight demons and fal­l­en angels is with spir­i­tu­al weapons. Those that do not have Jesus and the Holy Spir­it have no way to fight what they do not under­stand.

The author does take some lib­er­ties by mak­ing the elite force that fights the evil “The One­ness” but when one becomes a Chris­tian one becomes part of some­thing big­ger than them­selves. Eyes get opened to the bat­tles that are rag­ing all around us. It is through Jesus and the Holy Spir­it that we are equipped to fight with spir­i­tu­al weapon.

I enjoyed the way the author por­trayed the bat­tle between good and evil and how a per­son could be con­sumed by an evil spir­it.

If you like read­ing about spir­i­tu­al war­fare you will enjoy this book!

Great read. Look­ing for­ward to read­ing the next one!  This one is 5 stars from me!!
