"The most important value in life is deciding and knowing where you will spend eternity."
The Two Worlds in Which We Live: Physical and Spiritual is a Bible-based teaching narrative by Evelyn Rozier. The author explores issues such as why there is so much pain in the world and why we feel powerless to change. She explains the difference between the body and the spirit, spiritual warfare, the origin of sin, and the need for spiritual conversion through the death and resurrection of Christ. Ultimately, she assures us that God is all-knowing, holy, and righteous. He has prepared a path for us and He will prevail.
Although this 57-page study is a quick read, the author supports her thoughts with scriptures for reference, which I particularly like. Among others, she quotes from the books of Genesis, Leviticus, Matthew, Romans, Galatians, and Revelation. She addresses topics including the laws of man, the spiritual kingdom, baptism, wisdom, understanding, the Holy Spirit, new life in Christ, and prayer.
One thing I dislike is the bold type font used for all of the text; I find its overuse distracting. However, my biggest issue with the book is that it lacks editing and seemingly, even basic proofreading. By the third page of the first chapter, I counted over 30 errors. There are missing and incorrectly spelled words, but most of the errors are run-on sentences. Throughout the book, the author joins several independent clauses without regard for punctuation, making the book quite difficult to read. The following passage is a quote from the book, which illustrates the errors; the sporadic commas placed near the end do not clarify the meaning. To the contrary, one portion implies we hate our memory.
"We ask the question what will happen after I die people have many theories and beliefs about death the truth is we will live forever in heaven or in hell we are all spirit beings after the death of the human body our soul lives on in the spirit will never die, the soul is our heart the spiritual life our emotions, our personality how we love or hate our memory, our feeling of peace, where sorrow is felt, where joy is felt."
Were it not for the many errors and lack of editing, the information presented in the book would be a good Bible study for new Christians and readers wanting to learn more about spiritual warfare. Sadly, in its current state, I am unable to recommend it. I rate the book 1 out of 4 stars.
