Back Cover: The Veil
For as long as I can remember I have seen angels, demons, and other spiritual things.
It has been my source of greatest frustration, and place of deepest connection to God.
The spirit world has always been as real to me as anything in the physical world.
What if I told youth only thing keeping you from seeing in the spirit was a veil that had already been torn?
Book Review: The Veil
The Veil is the first book that I’ve read by Blake K. Healy and it changed how I look at seeing into the spirit world. The way Blake wrote this book, I found very interesting and helpful. He opted to just tell the story of his experiences and allow the reader, with the help of the Holy Spirit, to formulate their own opinion. So, in the spirit (sorry for the pun) of his approach to the book, I’d like to write this review the same way, not offering my opinion on the topic, but allowing you to formulate your own opinion after reading the book and asking the Holy Spirit to guide you.
The Veil is the story of Blake’s experiences with seeing in the spirit world, the good, the bad, the ugly, and the difficulties and blessings that one from it all. Here’s the Contents:
- My Story: Act One
- Part I: Demons and Such
- Keeping it Personal
- Home and Habitat
- Powers, Principalities, and so on…
- My Story: Act Two
- Part II: Angels and Infinity
- My Story: Act Three
- Part III: Do It Yourself
- Potential Blockages
- Epilogue: Why?
- The Veil
The Veil was well written and a very easy read, especially considering the subject matter. This, in my opinion, does not take on the darkness of the subject matter that I was concerned that some books on this subject can have. It appears to me to be written with a sincere heart and a desire to share his own personal experiences into seeing in the spirit world. For anyone that reads this book, you will find that you are challenged to see things that are not seen, in a new way, even if you choose not to attempt to see into the spirit world. The Bible is very clear that this realm does exist, please see Ephesians 6 for more details. It opened my eyes, if you will, and I’m not sure I’ll ever see things quite the same again. While I’ve had my own experiences with this, I have never had them to the degree described in this book.
I’d recommend The Veil for anyone that would like to learn more about seeing into the spirit world, what angles look like, does each person have their own personal ange, if so, how many and what the attacks of the enemy can look like, though the majority of the time we only feel the effects. This is not written with the heaviness or darkness that can accompany such subject matter. With the help of the Holy Spirit, you can find answers to questions you may have had about angels, if nothing else. I know that I will never look at worship nor church the same after reading this book…in a good way. Worth the read. Again, it’s written in a way that allows you to learn a bit on this topic and finish it fairly quickly.
Final thoughts: I really enjoyed this book and learned a lot from reading it. I give it 4.8 out of 5 stars, only because I would have liked to see less commentary on the things he didn’t like about his experiences and more on what he saw, especially since he mentioned he didn’t want to give his opinion and allow us to formulate our own. By simply stating once how it impacted him, he can trust that the reader will know the place he’s coming from and can, even if only slightly, imagine that it must have been very difficult for him, especially as a child. It would have been better in a “show don’t tell” format, allowing his readers to walk through these experiences with him and allowing the Holy Spirit to be our guide. With this being his first book, I thought he did a great job though, especially considering how hard it must be to write on this subject matter and attempt to convey events and sights that may be very difficult to find the right words to articulate. Not a big deal, but it did take away from the overall experience of the book a little bit for me. I do hope that he is planning on writing a book on the church as he said, that would be an interesting book to read too.
I hope you found this review helpful. If so, please share it with your family and friends, so they can learn about this great book too. You can click on any image of the book on this page to see it on Amazon.
Thanks for taking the time to read this review and God bless!
People sometimes tell me that they’re afraid to pursue seeing in the spirit because they think seeing all the demonic will overwhelm them. The truth is that it’s much more terrifying to see how much God cares for us. It’s a love that changes everything it touches. You can never go back once you’ve seen it. You’ll forgive when you don’t want to, give up anger before you’re ready, and become friends with people you wouldn’t have wanted to sit next to. All inspired by the profound revelation of his unyielding love.
