Castles in the Sand, by Carolyn Greene, is a good book as fiction per se. Yet, some fiction is…true. Greene’s book shows how even Christian colleges can fall prey to the anti-Biblical practices of the enemy.
At chuch last night a young woman told me she was at a “spiritual” bookstore, owned by a friend of her mother. The things being talked about seemed familiar somehow. She hadn’t finished reading Castles in the Sand, but she went back and read more.
Sure enough, many of the New Age/New Spirituality practices were described in the book. The woman had been educated, through this Christian “fiction,” to recognize these things the bookstore owner and her mother had been talking about.
Well, I have written many articles about Castles in the Sand. I have taken it to an AA meeting, a labyrinth, a Red Letter (yeah, right) Christian’s lecture, and even to a vampire movie. I have given the novel to people, or left it in strategic spots.
But I also have given it to people from my church. And hearing that last night, man, it is incredible to be a small part of the Lord’s plan.
Author Carolyn Greene, may He guide and bless you. If we see a sequel, I know it will only be after much prayer. That’s how the first one came with such power. (source)
