J. Dwight Pentecost asks the reader, "How much do you know about Satan?" Here is an illuminating study of the Devil from a veteran seminary professor and author.

Every Christian faces a powerful and cunning enemy—Satan. Victory over this opponent depends upon knowing his strategies and schemes and drawing upon the empowering presence of the Holy Spirit to stand firm against him.

Top Highlights

“Mark this principle: Satan always works by slandering the goodness and the holiness of God and by deceiving men concerning their relationship to God and the will of God.” (Page 43)

“The one whom we call Satan was originally known by the name of Lucifer, which means, ‘the light bearer,’ or ‘the brilliant one,’ ‘the shining one.’” (Page 12)

“The first doctrine that Satan opposes is the doctrine of the authority of the Scriptures, the doctrine of the verbal, plenary inspiration of the Word of God which gives authority and inerrancy to this Book.” (Page 106)

“Satan is an imitator, not an originator; and when Satan rebelled against God and planned his kingdom, he patterned it after God’s form of administration.” (Page 36)

“The second thing Satan cannot permit a man to accept is the doctrine of the Person of Christ.” (Page 107)

Praise for the Print Edition

This work uses the light of Scripture to expose the person and methods of Satan...Competent books on this subject are not plentiful...Pentecost gives us a very useful survey of information on Satan.

    The apostle Peter warns, "The end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer" (4:7). He is saying, in other words, "This is no time for lightness. You have to get sober-minded about spiritual matters. It is an issue of life and death."
