Review: the gate
I wasn't sure if I was going to like this book after the first chapter, but I did. Dann A. Stouten is a preacher, teacher, theologian and storyteller all wrapped into one. The Gate is hard to stash into a particular genre. I learned along with the main character, Schuyler Hunt, as he had the opportunity to review life changes and circumstances from a very different perspective.
The Gate is not a fast-paced action thriller. It is not a mystery or a romance. It is about rest and examination. It is about understanding and forgiveness. You will come away from reading these pages feeling refreshed and, perhaps, paying a little closer attention.
Because I don't want to be a spoiler I can't divulge the context in which Schuyler learns all that he does. However, what I can say is that if you've ever wanted to hear some good teaching on life, heaven and the hereafter then you might want to take a walk through The Gate.
