"The Gate," by Dann A. Stouten

"The Gate," by Dann A. Stouten


Every life is a story. Schuyler Hunt is about to come face-to-face with the author of his.

When a planned getaway with his wife turns into a shopping trip for the girls, Schuyler Hunt finds himself looking for something else to do. An ad for a vacation cottage catches his eye, and he sets off in search of a much-needed break. When he arrives, he finds something far different from the typical summer home experience. In fact, he may have found a little slice of heaven.

The proprietor-along with a number of unexpected and yet familiar guests-welcomes him with food, rest, and conversation, until what started out as an escape from everyday life turns into something much, much more . . .

“There is a real world all around us. We taste and feel it every day. There is also another world where God dwells and those who have gone before us live with Jesus. Dann Stouten helps us discover that these two places intersect more than we often notice. If we pay close attention, we just might see, smell, and learn to taste the goodness of a world beyond this one.”-Kevin Harney, author of Reckless Faith

I honestly don't know what to really say about this book, other than, I didn't "get" it.  The book was long and tedious to me and it's not a long book only 245 pages.  Even after reading it all I am still confused?  Was Schuyler dreaming or did what happens in the book really happen?  I have no idea.  Anyone who has read this book please feel free to enlighten me?

I think the quote from Kevin Harney, above, sort of explains it.

Stars out of 5 : 2 As I said I didn't get it, but you may.
