Why I'm Writing on Satan


Why write another book about Satan? I was recently asked by more than one young Christian what they could read to get the story on the Evil One. I had to pause. Screwtape Letters? That's good, but it's fiction, and doesn't really cover biblical teaching. Weirsby's book, Satan's Strategy? That's good, but real short and old. Doesn't go into much depth. Most of the others have stuff in that I don't think is taught in scripture.

Where can we look for a good overall study of scripture's teaching on Satan that shows hermeneutical restraint? That doesn't assume information not revealed? That covers the whole Bible's material on God's enemy? I don't know. In doing this book, I read about 25 titles. Almost all were either exaggerated and full of phony stories and unbiblical claims, or understated, presenting Satan as someone we don't need to worry about.

I decided to write. This book will unveil the fascinating story of the collision of God's kingdom and the Evil One's kingdom--the battle that we find ourselves swept into. The fascinating plan of God and our part in it.

I hope people are ready for this one. It's coming out from Bethany House in a few months. If you're interested, you can pre-order a copy now on Amazon here.

I just pre-ordered a copy on Amazon and I am going to encourage the others in my home group to do the same. It will be great to study this together. I have been absolutely fascinated by this material ever since the first time I heard you teach on how God's wisdom and Satan's wisdom collided at the cross. Though it takes some study, when this picture finally snaps into focus, it is awe-inspiring, and really helped me to develop a much stronger appreciation for depth of God's grace and love for us. Thank you for writing.

This looks great - I have actually taught a section in a high school class about satan, angels and demons, and you are right, there is very little good material out there. A lot of what I would use was really short entries from systematic theology texts. I'll look forward to picking this one up - thanks again

Yes. It has a chapter on occult bondage, possession, and things like that, and takes up this question.

Ok, that's fine. Thank you, brother!

I am curious if you faced any spiritual attack while writing this- wouldn't that be crazy!

I did, but I'm feeling far more on the book I'm writing now on the body of Christ.
