Little description: “It is the best treatment of the person and work of the enemy I have ever read.” — R.C. Sproul, from the foreword to God’s Devil
Many Christians are oblivious to the Devil and his schemes, and this is precisely the problem. If you don’t know why you need to know about the Devil, then this book is especially for you.
In God’s Devil, pastor and scholar Erwin W. Lutzer takes us to the corners of Scripture to which we seldom go. With surprising insights and potent quotes at every turn, God’s Devil will:
- Teach you how Satan fits into God’s great plans for the world
- Give you confidence in God’s everlasting victory over Satan
- Equip you to withstand Satan’s schemes against you
Martin Luther once said, “Even the Devil is God’s devil.” So while this is a book about Satan, it is even more about God’s sovereign power over him. Read it for comfort, read it for peace, and read it for strength.

My thoughts: 5 stars out of 5
I am surely glad that God has the devil on the short leash. This truth should be reminded over and over again. There is nothing ever existing in seen or unseen realms what God is not in control of. His greatness, power, authority and ownership is visible in every moment, every place and every space. There is more going on that we know or even realize.
Great subject… This will definitely remove a huge chunk of fear and enemy’s illusion from the people of God. The book talks about putting the Devil in his place. He is truly a star that bit the dust because of the next things: the special privileges and position in God, the beauty and design of Lucifer made him see the different picture that what God created him to be, which caused him to be prideful; and that cause him to be blind in foreseeing thing, especially the proud walk and the proud talk didn’t help him to see that he walked on the edge of the sword… He was limited in understanding God. While all were submitted to God’s authority, the Mighty One didn’t need to exercise His anger and wrath. The devil should have known that God will not share His glory with no one, while he tried to steal it from the Creator.
There is more topics in the book, like the chapter on the Serpent and the garden; crushed head of the Serpent, the new religion and how to neutralize the Serpent’s poison.
Yes! The Serpent in eternal humiliation… God made the devil our doormat. So be encouraged and read the book.
