Book Review: The Light by Mike Evans


The Light is a fictionalized version of Mike Evans' life. David is the character that portrays Mike in the book. He has a Jewish mother and his father is a non-Jew. David endured a hard life having to live with abuse from his father. His father also makes it clear that he is not happy that he is Jewish. He wonders why God didn't stop the abuse as he was going through it, he was a child when it happened after all.

David is taken on a path of healing and hope as he encounters and follows the advice of what he thinks are angels that cross his path. The advice is beyond what David would have thought of on his own, although mysteries and answers are uncovered when he takes it.

I followed this book very well because I understand what it is like to crave for an end to nightmarish conditions and not receive an immediate release. David wasn't released from his conditions until he was old enough to make a decision on his own about how to find a better path and place for himself in life. It got my attention that one thing that helped David to heal years after the abuse happened was when he went back to the house that the abuse happened at. He seemed to have been released from a lot after he took that step. That might not be the answer for everyone but I was happy to see that it worked for him.

It like that this book was put into fiction format because it is hard to remember all the details of the past, especially when they involve trauma. This book showed me and I hope it will show others how important it is to find the Messiah's path of healing and hope after enduring terrible circumstances.

My review= 5 out of 5 stars

I received this book on behalf of a ministry and was not required to write a review for it.
