Fifteen-year-old Jack Allen is like other teenagers, going to school, hanging out with his friends, listening to music, and playing video games. His daily life is focused on trying to fit in. But Spaw, an ambitious and high-ranking demon, has other plans. Posing as a beautiful spirit named Rachel, Spaw uses Jack’s desire for acceptance to try to lure him to his destruction.
As Jack experiences worldly temptations—including violence, sex, drugs, and theft—he receives demonic encouragement to let go. Doing so, he’s told, will help him fit in and progress spiritually to the point where he can rejoin Rachel, who awaits him in the real spiritual world. Jack’s natural teenage desires have set him drifting into dangerous waters, and he is in serious jeopardy in his faith journey. While his loved ones pray for him, Jack must decide whether to enjoy new found popularity or turn away from evil and choose the righteous path, even if it means becoming an outcast.
The Current and the Outcast, a work of religious fiction for teens, tells a story of redemption against strong demonic influences.
