"This book is a modest attempt to put the devil in his place," Erwin Lutzer begins. How can one book strike a blow to our adversary? By pointing out that although Lucifer rebelled so he might no longer be God's servant, he still is. Even today, Satan cannot make a move without God's express consent.
Lutzer contends that we cannot properly understand Satan unless we first understand God. When we stand in awe of God, we will find it unnecessary to stand in awe of Satan.
The Serpent of Paradise will challenge popular conceptions of Satan that play into the enemy's hands. Lutzer demonstrates that Satan's bid for independence was fatally flawed the moment he sinned.
Here is a book that will stimulate your faith and lead you to worship a God who does not lose---even when Satan appears to win. You will come away with a deeper understanding of Martin Luther's words, "Even the devil is God's devil."
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.
