Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

How we perceive our enemy will largely determine how we fight against him. Unless we grasp how the devil fits into God's scheme of things, we will find it difficult to stand against his conspiracy against us personally and his influence within our culture. We can have a proper theology of the devil only if we have a proper theology of God. Only when we stand in awe of God will we find it unnecessary to be in awe of Satan. As Martin Luther once said, 'The devil is God's devil.' God is still in control.

The Serpent of Paradise gives an overview of the career of Satan and his interaction with the Almighty. It traces his fall from an exalted position to his demise in everlasting shame and contempt. It shows us that Satan always loses even when 'he wins.' Best of all, it confirms that we who have been translated from the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of light are able to stand against him. Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. Ephesians 6:10-11 NIV. The Serpent of Paradise is a book about Satan, but it is also a book about God's power, God's program, and God's purposes in this world.

Synopsis:

To defeat an enemy, it helps to understand him. Erwin Lutzer presents an intriguing overview of Satan's career: his fall from heaven, his work on earth, and his ultimate demise. Discover why God is in control not just of Satan's destiny, but of his every action.

Synopsis:

"e;It is the best treatment of the person and work of the enemy I have ever read."e;

—R. C. Sproul, from the foreword

Many Christians are oblivious to the devil and his schemes. Others look for him everywhere. All need to hear what God’s Devil has to say: that the devil roams about, but on God’s leash.

In God’s Devil, Erwin W. Lutzer takes us to those corners of Scripture we rarely consider. With surprising insights and potent quotes at every turn, God’s Devil will:

  • Teach you about Satan and his role in God’s plan for the world
  • Give you confidence in God’s eternal victory over Satan
  • Equip you to withstand Satan’s schemes

Martin Luther once said, "e;Even the devil is God’s devil."e; So while this book is about Satan, it is even more about God’s sovereign power over him. Read it for wisdom, read it for peace, and read it for strength.

Synopsis:

To defeat an enemy, it helps to understand him. Lutzer presents an intriguing overview of Satan's career. Learn to distinguish between the biblical devil and all the stories that surround him. Discover why God is in control not just of Satan's destiny, but of his every action.
