I knew nothing about Matthew John Slick prior to beginning his book "The Influence". Make no mistake though, this is really Slick's explanation of the gospel. He's tried to cleverly wrap it in the cloak of a novel about angels and demons, but what we really have here is the message of the gospel (thoroughly explained).

Mark is in his garden, grieving and depressed over the unexplained death of his son and without knowing it, is almost coaxed by a demon into committing suicide. But, at the last moment Sotare, an angel, rescues him and is later permitted to appear to Mark in the Garden. The two dialogue about God, life, death, good, evil, the spiritual realm, and the nature of truth. However, all is not well. The demons are watching and powerful evil forces are sent to kill and destroy those who are close to Mark and those who are praying for him. As Sotare teaches Mark, he is given answers to his questions -- but they do not come easily. He must face his greatest challenge in order to learn his greatest lesson. The battle over Mark unfolds in both the spiritual and physical worlds as angels are sent to battle against the evil forces that are seeking to destroy. True victory is never easy.

From the title, I was not expecting this novel to as good as it is. I was totally blown away by this book. I have read other reviews in Shelfari and Amazon and I agree with some of the reviewers, "...great example of using fiction to also teach sound Biblical theology...", "...wondering if this was really a non-fiction story...", "It not only helped me strengthen my faith but made me think of a lot of things about my relationship with God..", "recommend this to anyone who is going through a difficult period...Actually I would recommend this book to all Christians...", "...a great story as well as educating us on Christian doctrine..".

I did not want this to end, I cried at the end, not due to sadness but joy, at the sovereignity of God, His grace, His mercy, His love for us and above the Hope that only He can provide and give us.

A sequel would be great here. That would be such a blessing. This is one of my all time favourites.

In the league of Frank Peretti's This Present Darkness, and Piercing The Darkness, and also Graham Carter's No Eye Has Seen, even Randy Alcorn's Ishbane Conspiracy and Lord Foulgrin Letters.

This is a must read for every Christian. Highly Recommended.

I knew nothing about Matthew John Slick prior to beginning his book "The Influence". After reading, it's obvious that Slick is serious about what he believes and that certainly comes through in this book. The book is advertized as a "Supernatural Thriller" - it says so right on the cover....lol. Make no mistake though, this is really Slick's explanation of the gospel. He's tried to cleverly wrap it in the cloak of a novel about angels and demons, but what we really have here is the message of the gospel (thoroughly explained).

This book has its ups and downs, and I think the reader's satisfaction with the work will be largely determined by their expectations going in. Anyone who picks up this book because they are looking for a "supernatural thriller" is going to be disappointed. As a novel, the book is very pedestrian. The characters are not well developed and Slick lacks the deft hand of more accomplished authors. He often tells you what the characters are feeling instead of letting the dialogue convey their emotions and feelings. The story is also very predictable. Any seasoned reader will see everything that's going to happen long before the story actually gets there. Additionally, there is no real concern or fear for the characters. At no point during the story was there ever any doubt that in the end, everything was going to work itself out and we were going to have a happy ending.
Those things aside, the book certainly does have its good points. Slick does an excellent job of repeatedly presenting the gospel. Unlike some other popular Christian novels, this book spells out the way to receive Christ very, very clearly. And while I think that the amount of spiritual warfare that really goes on in this world, and just how much influence those forces can really have on a person, is something that we can only make educated guesses about - the bible is crystal clear on the way to salvation and Slick presents that message equally clearly. His theology on salvation is rock solid. So if you're a reader looking for a better understanding on salvation or if you're someone who has a friend or loved one that is not saved, then this book is probably exactly what you're looking for.

We live in a world that seems to be spinning out of control. We've searched for "truth" inside of ourselves and come up empty handed. We've trusted only what we can see with our eyes of flesh. We've filled up the empty places of our soul with anything and everything trying to satisfy our desperately needy flesh. The result is that sickening grief and loss over having tried and trusted one more thing and hoping for relief.

Who am I? To you, no one. To God, I'm one worth dying for! After reading this book I'm reminded again of His love and attention to detail. I'm amazed at the great lengths He will go to pursue us. Who does He pursue? You. Black. White. Hispanic. Rich. Poor. Employed. Gay. Straight. He pursues us all.

Matt Slick paints such a beautiful, terrible, picture of the battle that goes on over your soul. His words brush back the veil that hides the divine battle. Slick helps us to see into the lives of his fictional characters a very real truth. He reminded me to look up and remember that there are certainly more for me than against me.

Get this book. I'll pray that you are blessed by it.

(I am a disciple of Jesus Christ and have trusted in Him alone, by faith alone, because of His grace. God is good. You can trust Him, too.)

I read this book on Kindle a couple of years ago and really liked it. Last night I downloaded the audio version on Kindle to listen to it at work today. I have listened to Matt Slick on the radio and followed him on his ministries website (CARM.org) for years, and even met him on a couple of occasions. He's a brilliant apologist, debater, and thinker. He assumes some creative license in this book, which he openly admits and explains, to express aspects of spiritual warfare in a work of fiction. The principles it's predicated on are extremely biblical. And it's pretty easy to recognize what is fabricated in the story to allow it to flow without confusing it for some weird doctrine.
Good book. I recommend it!

I bought the kindle version but actually listened to it over the Audible add-on.

The book was done very nicely. The initial hook was enough to kept me on my toes for the first 2 chapters. The narrative about the spiritual realm really intrigued me even though I've been part of an charismatic ministry for a while. As I kept pushing on with the reading, I felt more and more encouraged, as well as secured in my faith.

The one lesson that I've gotten out of this book was - we must pray without ceasing.

This is a well-written book. It's easy to read and filled with speculations that has good biblical evidence. Anyone that's interested in sci-fi, spiritual, thriller, suspense would thoroughly enjoy it. Highly recommend it.
