I loved the idea of telling the story through poetry and it was definitely beautifully done. At times the poetry didn’t flow smoothly due to the story line. Paul is a dreamer and is taken on a journey through the world of spiritual warfare. He realizes that he can't just stand by and watch the wars around him, he must participate actively. Not all battles are won. It is very applicable to anyone who reads this book, young or old. One of my favorite parts was reading about Daniel standing with the other soldiers facing off the demons. They tried to tempt him and scare him into changing sides because of his size and age. He courageously stood his ground and fought the demon. The book is filled with scripture references. That was another reason it was so slow reading it. At first I kept my Bible along side and tried to look the scripture up. Finally I had to wait until I had finished and go back to find the references. I believe this is a must read for anyone. This should especially be read by Christians who fight the fight alongside Daniel.
