The Two Worlds in Which we Live Physical and Spiritual by Evelyn Rozier starts with describing the first war between God and his angels versus the devil with fallen angles. God, of course, wins and banishes the devil along with his fallen angels out of heaven forever. The author then goes to explain the laws of Mankind.

Throughout the book's entirety, Evelyn describes how humans should live their lives both physically and spiritually to fulfill their purpose from God in chronological order from the Bible. The human body is just a host for our souls, and our souls can't die, if we live our lives dutifully following God then we will be rewarded with an eternal paradise, if we love and cherish God and do no wrong, then we will be rewarded. The author gives many ways and examples of how God guides us both spiritually and physically.

What I liked most about this book was how the author followed the Bible's timeline in chronological order, starting with the war between Satan and God then going to the story of Adam and Eve. It made the book flow great and made it easier to understand. Another thing that I liked was that the author gave specific examples of how humans can do right or wrong, an example of this would be "A hard-hearted person rejects God and refuses to give his/her heart to God" (p. 69). The author says that if you reject God and don't accept loving him and worshiping him, your heart is hard-hearted, meaning that you are emotionless or have no feelings.

The author would occasionally mention how if we didn't follow God, or if we do wrong, then we will be immensely punished, which is true, but the author described it as if God enjoyed doing so or did it out of spite or hate. But in truth, God punishes us out of love, so we know how to fulfill our lives better. The author just made God seem more like an evil and powerful leader when he does everything out of love for us, not spite.

I would recommend this book to adults who are looking for spiritual guidance. I wouldn't recommend this book to kids nor young adults since it can be confusing if you don't have some understanding of the bible. I rate this book a 2 out of 4 stars since there were a few grammatical errors, and I believe that they miss portrayed God sometimes.

It’s a shame that the book was just repetitive of just the Bible, thank you for your review.

I read this book sometime ago and agree with all your points. The book, in my opinion, didn't offer anything new to the reader. Great review!

The book seems to have an interesting beginning. I'm always up for some explanation of supernatural events. The spiritual and physical world are the two worlds which we live in. Good work!

We all perceive the providential aid of God differently,and we have our reasons intact. The storyline should never impose things on anyone.

Thanks for your informative review!

It's true that our God is loving and punishes out of love. A great book, it sounds, yet with misguided arguments. Great review

I was intrigued by your opening statement about describing the war and how the Mankind behaved in the beginning, but I don't think I will be reading this book since I don't like writing about God to be in a way of statements. I believe everyone has their own idea of faith and even right and wrong are sometimes dubious. Thank you for the review!

Thanks for the succinct review! I appreciate your thorough explanation as to how the book's inadvertent portrayal of God as sadistic is incorrect.

This seems like a rather spiritual book, which is not really my cup of tea. However, I really enjoyed reading your analysis. Thanks for the insightful review!
