The Door is the first book by Lorilyn Roberts I've had the pleasure of reading. And it was really long overdue really. Fans of Christian Fiction are going to love this book. A modern-day girl, Shale, is transported back to the time when Jesus of Nazareth walked the Earth. In the few years she spends stuck in this time, she not only learns more about those around her, but she learns more about herself as well.
This book is beautifully written, and descriptive enough that the reader sees and feels everything going on. I found no errors in this book. Though, the fact that not Shale, nor Daniel, who are both from our time, don't know the King is Jesus bothered me. I can almost let Shale get away with it, but even Atheists know who Jesus is and what the Bible says he did. The fact that Daniel has no idea bothered more than a little bit. Daniel is a Jew, and while the Jews don't claim Jesus as their Messiah, they know the things he was said to have done. So Daniel being a devout Jew and not knowing who Jesus was bothered me.
The Door has many life lessons that most young people are either not taught these days or ignore, but they are needed to know. It also teaches Christians young and old that their God is forgiving, if they only seek to be forgiven. I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone of any spiritual path. This book is a great story for all people.
All in all, this book was a great read and I wish I had the others in the series to finish the story.
I give this book 5 of 5 paws and hope Ms. Roberts continues to teach her God's teachings to those young and old.
