Product Description


When the horse-loving, day-dreaming Tessa Dawson enters a Christian college, she is introduced to the writings of 16th century Teresa of Avila by her spiritual formation professor. Soon Tessa's life is dramatically affected as she delves into "Christian mysticism." As she ventures deeper into this form of spirituality, God prepares her concerned grandfather and a mysterious young man as they set out to reach her.

This "fiction with a message" takes a compelling and thought-provoking look at the true nature behind contemplative spirituality, which has impacted Christian churches, colleges, seminaries, and universities across the globe.

Two lives are changed forever through spiritual practices they each encounter

With the death of its long-time pastor, Sheep Gate Lane Church is a mere shell, a crumbling icon that will soon be fit only for postcard decoration. Desperate for a resurgence of the old sawdust-trail days, the deacons cast a wide net, hoping to reel in a new and invigorating pastor.

At the sudden appearance of young, handsome, William "Chip" Davis, church attendance soars and the offering basket is full to overflowing. Universally loved, Chip's many successful church programs make Sheep Gate Lane Church the county center of a revival movement, with Chip the acknowledged captain of a ship bound for glory.

But insidious forces work behind the veneer of success. Subtly merging traditional Christianity with pseudo-Christian mysticism, Chip slowly reveals the wolf beneath his sheep's apparel. When he is joined at the church podium by a mysterious nun who has evil plans of her own, the entire congregation is caught in the maelstrom of false religion and finds itself in a very real spiritual war fought for the souls of men, women, and children.

In this continuation of the Lighthouse Trails novel Castles in the Sand, you'll meet again the characters you grew to love-weary Jacob Brown and his patient wife Margaret, stalwart Nathan, and a now world-wise Tessa come home to find herself the target of an unseen killer's vengeance. Revealing the outward loveliness of spiritual deception, Dangerous Illusions is a taut thriller with an ultimate message of hope and deliverance through Jesus Christ.

Castles In The Sand/Dangerous Illusions

Both excellent reads. Although fiction, both books do a great job describing the current (end times, Laodician) condition of "Christian" schools and churches. Well worth reading. I really enjoyed both.
