Ascent from Darkness tells the true story of Michael Leehan as he falls into Satanism and returns redeemed by God's great grace. It's a truly remarkable testimony.
The writing is good and the people believable. The story is fast paced covering several decades.
And I'm going to have to say I don't recommend it. The darkness is so dark. The stories so vivid. The animal sacrifices are heartbreaking and the fear palpable. I know that Satan is alive and well on planet earth and spiritual warfare is real, but personally I don't want to read about it.
It would appeal to a limited audience at best. I am grateful for his freedom from darkness into God's glorious light. A miracle indeed.
