The Origin of Satan: How Christians Demonized Jews, Pagans, and Heretics Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the religious historian whose The Gnostic Gospels won both the National Book Award and the National Book Critics Circle Award comes a dramatic interpretation of Satan and his role on the Christian tradition. With magisterial learning and the elan of a born storyteller, Pagels turns Satan's story into an audacious exploration of Christianity's shadow side, in which the gospel of love gives way to irrational hatreds that continue to haunt Christians and non-Christians alike.

From the Trade Paperback edition.
