Revell Book Tours Presents: The Gate by Dann A. Stouten


Pastor and author, Dann Stouten, offers an imaginative novel that explores the big questions we all have about what lies beyond this earthly life. Those hungry for a taste of heaven will find in The Gate hope, encouragement, and pure joy.
When an ad for a vacation cottage catches the eye of a man on the edge of burnout, he impulsively sets off to visit the property while his wife and daughters are away. When he arrives and is ushered through the gate, he finds something far different from the typical vacation retreat. In fact, it seems he may have found the back door to heaven. The proprietor and people from his past welcome him with food, rest, and conversation until what started out as a little escape from everyday life turns into an experience he will never forget.

Dann A. Stouten is senior pastor of Community Reformed Church in Zeeland, Michigan, one of the fastest-growing churches on the West Michigan lakeshore. After a highly successful career in the auto industry, Dann returned to school and earned his DMin in narrative preaching. This is his first novel.

My Review: 
 What a profound, page turning read. It pulls your attention right from the start. Who wouldn't want the chance that was given to Schuyler Hunt. Of course, like him, I would have to be convinced to leave.
Loved the play on names here....Paradise Reality with Agent Michael DeAngelo. We are experiencing answers, and in a most wonderful way. This tale makes you think...Satan is not God's equal...he never was, he was the same as Michael the Archangel...of course!!
Another thought that I picked up on and agree with is Life on Earth is Preschool for Eternity. Well said.
If you don't read another book this year, this one will stay with you for the rest of your life. A total must read for a Christian. Love it!

I received this book through Revell's Book Blogger Program, and was not required to give a positive review.
