Ascent from Darkness by Michael Leehan

How does someone come out of a life of serving Satan, to then become a follower of Christ? This author knows from personal experience. In this book you will read how Leehan’s life spiraled downward, what led him to serve Satan, his life in the grip of darkness, and how he turned his life over to Jesus Christ.

This book made me squirm quite a bit. How could someone go to this extreme? To me it is hard to imagine. Leehan makes it a point to let you know he is not trying sensationalize anything or bring a shock factor; he is just stating the facts, sharing the depth of depravity his life had become. He also shows how God was continually pursuing him. I love how God placed so many people in his life to minister to him, and I love that they didn’t give up on him. This is definitely not a light read, but is a good reminder that Satan does exist; that he is the prince of darkness. Let us not forget to “walk in the light as He is in the light.”
