Suppose your neighbor-hood was being invaded by the Nazis and your neighbors were screaming and crying out in pain. Would you ignore their cries by turning your television volume up to drown out the noise? Or would you realize that you were in a war and you had to do something besides just idly sitting by? This story seeks to make warriors out of bystanders. To make us all realize, that no matter what our age, if we are saved, we are all truly Soldiers of the Cross, empowered to victory.
The story, in poetic form, takes the "dreamer" on a journey into the world of spiritual warfare on a grand scale. God takes him on this journey so he can really see what is going on in the world around him in the spiritual world. Paul, our dreamer, finds out that his world really has gone to hell, and hell is knocking at the door. Through a central character, James, and other various characters the dreamer is able to see the many faces of war. War is never just about an individual, but about all the people caught up in the horror that is war. At the end of the dream the "dreamer" realizes that he must be actively involved now. No matter what the age of the readers, all will be able to identify with at least one of the characters. Over 300 scripture references are given throughout the story to continually point the readers back to their roots- God's word.
