This book is written by a man who received a vision from God. Or rather a number of visions. About the future .. and the spiritual battle that is happening and will happen. The imagery is very vivid and easy to picture. Somewhat reminiscent of Pilgrim's Progress or Hind's Feet on High Places where creatures/characters are given names of sins and ways of living. The vividness of the landscapes and battles that take place are a bit disturbing, but that seems as it should be.

There are five sections, describing a journey with various stages. The main battle on the plain, climbing the mountain to arrive at the garden of God, returning to battle as seasoned warriors, being guided by Wisdom, experiencing the treasures of heaven, the throne room of the Lord, and a challenge for the future. In his introduction, Joyner is careful to remind readers to check the images and ideas with the Bible .. to be careful what they believe and how they live. I'm glad for this. The ideas and images are helpful and encouraging, but as with anything need to be taken in carefully, prayed over, and only then acted upon. This book is both cautionary and encouraging, with words of truth and an awareness of what the battles that are to be fought now and in the future are actually about. And a needed reminder that we do not fight against flesh and blood, but against the rulers and powers and principalities .. on the side of the One who already stands victorious!
