A very down-to-earth look at Satan and Demons
While reading this book I increasingly became aware of the role Satan has been playing in my life: the lies he tells me that I buy into, the discouraging thoughts I have when he proposes that I ought to be prideful and think of myself, and the worries I have at those times he has convinced me to not trust God.
This book revealed this and so much more to me! This book will prepare you for a life lived for God. It will prepare you for the war between God and Satan, Angels and Demons, people and sin, truth and lies. Praise God for this book, a focused study on Satan and how he matters to you.

Satan is Surprisingly Relevant!
I never thought of myself as very interested in Satan, so I was surprised when I couldn't put this book down! Satan and His Kingdom provides an accessible and biblical view of God's enemy. I used to be too intimidated to consider Satan and his role in my life. This material is practically applicable and should be read by every Christian believer! It's not at all corny or irrelevantly academic. Perfect for a a small group or church class.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Must read dispels the romance and mythology surrounding Satan
Satan and His Kingdom by David McCallum is a hard-hitting look at the prince of this world. McCallum sticks strictly to Scripture to explain just who Satan aka the devil aka the accuser, etc, etc is. Lucifer is a title not actually appropriate for him as it is from a misinterpreted piece of the book of Isaiah. By breaking down every biblical reference to Satan, he delves deeply into exactly what his role is and what his actual abilities are. He shatters some illusions (sorry folks, but there's no pointy tail or pitchfork), but really tries to keep the focus on the damage Satan inflicts by allowing people of the Western world to think that he is just a myth. While McCallum does try to keep his focus on Scripture, I think that by ignoring Satan's portrayal in historical literature and pop culture, the book isn't as interesting as it could be. If he had chosen to refute each error point by point, it would make for a more enjoyable read. The book's ending is a bit of a disappointment, it doesn't conclude so much as just fizzle out with some unnecessary appendices. It's still a must read to dispel the illusions that have grown up around the devil.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Satan and His Kingdom
As Christians, the most important part of our daily walk is getting closer to Jesus. But it is also important to know more about Satan, the one who wants to keep us from having that relationship with our Savior. It is important to know who he is, how he works, and all his tricks. Satan and His Kingdom is just the book to help Christians learn more about the enemy and understand how he operates.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Many people don't like to hear about Satan, the subject makes them uncomfortable, but the Bible is full of references to the evil one. Satan and His Kingdom does a really good job of pulling verses of scripture into the text to really illustrate the Godly basis of understanding who Satan is. This book is very readable and easy to follow. There is a lot of practical, useful information that can help each of us recognize Satan's traps, protect ourselves and avoid sin.
I think my favorite chapter of this book would have to be Satan's Power Moves (Chapter 17). I say that because this chapter focuses on the occult. Before I became a Christian, I always thought the occult was just an innocent hobby. I was never interested in the occult, but I know a lot of people are these days. This chapter tells us, again citing multiple verses of scripture, just how dangerous the occult is. Like the author says, "Satan most often prefers to work in stealthy ways." That is so very true.
There was one part that made me raise a skeptical eyebrow. The author states that Satan is capable of moving objects and causing electronic malfunctions. That just sounds a little strange to me and I have a hard time believing it. But, I am willing to give the author the benefit of the doubt since he is much more of an expert than I will ever be.
Our God is a very loving God and I highly recommend Satan and His Kingdom to help you understand the one who wants to come between you and God.
