Jeffery Burtons Russell's second installment of his series about The Prince of Darkness is a fantastic introduction to what early Christian thinkers decided was the origin of Satan and the nature of evil in general. Many of our modern ideas about Satan stem from the period covered in this book, while other strange concepts have obviously dissapearred. Two side highlights I enjoyed from this book were the snippets of conversations between monks and demons and the (new to me) story of Jesus dying on the cross so that he could kick in the gates of hell, give Satan whatfor and free the damned. I highly recommend this book for beleivers, skeptics and pagans alike.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
