M. T. Whallete5 Stars Out Of 5August 16, 2010M. T. WhalleteMost of us inherited our concept of Satan, and it is saturated in unfounded and fictional beliefs. Kelly does a remarkable job of peeling away the layers of traditional sediment that have accumulated over hundreds of years. I have read several books on this subject, and I, a theological conservative, was able to embrace the author's position. Inasmuch as the Satan of the NT is the same Satan of the OT and Christianity is an outgrowth of Judaism, the Satan of today is basically the same old Satan.In the OT Satan was an agent of God to prove the genuineness and fidelity of a believers faith, and that is precisely his role today. That is what he did to Job, and he is resilient and resourceful.It may sound bizarre and strange, but I believe it to be Biblical. Much of the protestant theology was we inherited from the Catholic theology when the reformation movement began a few centuries ago. I recommend this book by the emminently qualified author.
Timothy D. Smith4 Stars Out Of 5April 1, 2009Timothy D. SmithThis book teaches heresy and furthermore BLASPHEMES God by referring to Him as "the Big Guy" and other such terms. It is laughable in its logic, and was NOT written by a Christian. It is ANTIChristian.
GG1 Stars Out Of 5March 31, 2009GGIt strikes me as bizarre that a Christian author would devote an entire book to the evil one, rather than pointing hundreds of readers to Christ. If we are to truly be a Christ-centered Body, then we ought to center ourselves (and what we read and write) on Christ. "Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God." Hebrews 12:2
