About the Book
Book: Two Rivers
Author: Michael W. Henry
Release Date: April 10, 2020
In 1840 Pastor Allen Hartman leaves behind his white-steepled church in New York, and the woman he hopes to marry, to serve as a missionary to Indians in the Oregon Territory. On his epic westward journey, he is plunged into the dark end of spiritual warfare and vital intercession. His mettle is further tested when he’s asked to stay in a village of Arapaho already contending with a malevolent witch doctor—where Allen has to draw upon courage he didn’t know he possessed and discovers ministering to Indians is not at all what he imagined.
Arapaho medicine man Two Rivers knows one thing—the Great Spirit is sending White Falcon to help his people defeat the malicious spiritual forces determined to overpower the tribe. But even as White Falcon teams up with Two Rivers, Allen finds himself enslaved in a cave and in a heaven-meets-earth clash of faith with an evil sorcerer. With his life at stake and his new friends unable to help, will Spirit-led prayers of believers lead to a complete victory, or will something be left undone?

Guest Review from Donna Cline
What I think you should know:
Two Rivers by Michael Henry is a Historical Christian Fiction. It is set in the 1840s in the Oregon territory. This book is about Spiritual Warfare and the courage to share your faith in the face of adversity.
What you might need to know:
This book deals with spiritual warfare and very realistic manifestation of demons and spirits
What I think about this book:
A long time ago I was told that there are things you should not go into unprepared, you don’t do it unless you are prayed up. This is definitely one of those books for me. I was very touched by many of the things that I read in this book but I would not recommend it lightly to believers that are not strong in their faith. I recommend that prior to reading this book that you pray about reading it. I was touched how the book showed that sometimes the accepted Church is not always as strong spiritually as those who have been tested in their faith or came to their Faith after or during hardships. I love how Henry showed that through prayer and those who followed the nudge of the Holy Spirit to stand in the gap for Allen in prayer. I enjoyed getting to know the different people groups that were in the book. I appreciated the way that Henry wrote about the demons and how they could affect people, However even more than that I was thankful to show that the Power of the Holy Spirit and the prayers of the people that have been sent by the Holy Spirit are more powerful than any demon. This was definitely an eye opening book for me and one that I will be recommending to many of my Christian friends.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Celebrate Lit, this in no way influenced my review. All opinions are my own.

More from Michael
Two Rivers is a story about courageous faith. I wrote it because as a missionary in Mexico, I had experienced spiritual encounters that I felt needed to be shared. A historical fiction seemed the perfect place to demonstrate the power of prayer and cross cultural respect in an authentic way.
