Overview

T.J. Wray and Gregory Mobley explore how--and why--a rather innocuous Old Testament character morphed into The Titan of Evil. Wray and Mobley guide the reader through subjects ranging from the Old Testament to contemporary belief systems. They begin with an examination of the first glimmers of Satan found in the Bible within the personality of God. They move to a discussion of different views of Satan in the New Testament providing the reader with examples from the gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke. Wray and Mobley's interpretation ends with a look at the modern versions of Satan and how his career still flourishes beyond the pages of the Bible. Engaging and informative, this book rivals Elaine Pagels' work on the subject.
