The Soul Saver - A Review


Dineen A. Miller

A Review

Lexis Baltimore feels confused.  She feels trapped in a marriage to a man who does not share her faith.  She feels drawn to a pastor, Nate Winslow, who has sold his soul to the devil.  She feels the loss of her daughter who died a horrible death by cancer.

And now she finds herself in the midst of a spiritual battle that could totally destroy her marriage and witness.  

She also has Christians willing to walk alongside her - Abby and her group of fellow prayers are the most readily available, but there are others.  It will take the effort of all to resolve the tension rising to the surface in the lives of all those around.

Using the lessons in the author’s previous book,  Winning Him Without Words: 10 Keys to Thriving in Your Spiritually Mismatched Marriage, Lexis begins to understand that she must ultimately trust God - she cannot drag her husband into heaven, only God can save him.  I was reminded of three questions that my wife and I have had to learn the answer to when faced with life’s most difficult circumstances:

  1. Who is in control? - God
  2. Who do I need to trust? - God
  3. What else do I need to do? - Nothing
It would take time, but Nate, Lexis, and her husband would each learn these lessons.  And Satan would lose the battle for their souls and they each would individually experience God’s grace.  
Designed to encourage the spouse with an unbelieving spouse, the book will also provide support for the man or woman caught up in a spiritual battle or whose spouse is feared to be an adulterer; or serve as support for the person who is called to walk alongside those facing these difficulties in life.  
This review is based on a free electronic copy provided by the publisher for the purpose of creating this review.  The opinions expressed are mine alone.
