The Serpent of Paradise: The Incredible Story of How Satan's Rebellion Serves God's Purposes

Availability: Ready to download

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 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.

    The best book I've read on the reality of Satan, who is is, who he is not, what he can do, what he cannot do. Scripture-based, well researched. The best book I've read on the reality of Satan, who is is, who he is not, what he can do, what he cannot do. Scripture-based, well researched.

    Great book. Totally fun to read. Probably the best book i've read on Satan and Demons yet. Sure is better than Bob Larson's Demon Slayer accounts. This book really does put the devil in his place. It takes away most of the power that some Christians give him and places it back on God - where it belongs. As Luther says: He is indeed God's devil. I disagree with Lutzer that Satan understood Jesus and the Trinity. I'm not convinced that Satan knew Jesus was God. Satan actually thought he could tempt Great book. Totally fun to read.

I disagree with Lutzer that Satan understood Jesus and the Trinity. I'm not convinced that Satan knew Jesus was God. Satan actually thought he could tempt Jesus. That means he didn't understand Jesus true authority. But besides that possibility: What a great book. I can't wait to read some of his other contributions.

    Who is the devil? Does he really exist? If so, what do we know about him, and how do we know it? Does he have an equal amount of power with God? Is he sort of like gods antihero? This book answers all of these questions and more through the lens of scripture. It’s an excellent book, and I urge anyone to read it who’s interested in this topic.

    Interesting study of Satan's work in his realm and how it connects to God's sovereign power and His plan for mankind and the creation. Some of the commentaries did not correlate directly to the Bible, as a result of the author’s own interpretation.

The devil is completely controlled by god and used by Him to ultimately fulfill God's plan for the world and man (and woman). Satan is the villainous (and once favored of God) figure who boasts of deposing God but he is ultimately cast out of heaven for his rebellion, bound for a thousand years and finally will be cast into the lake of fire bu God.The author surgically cuts away myth, perception and false doctrine to reveal the true nature and purpose of Satan, the devil. This is an incredible book for anyone with questions about the devil and his relationship with God, the angels and man.Well done, Mr. Lutzer.

    I found this to be the best book on Satan that I have read. It is also quite thought provoking. I disagreed with a few end times things at the end of the book, but thought it was an excellent read.
