Most people in the world believe in God, a supernatural being who created the universe and bestows nothing but benevolence on humanity. Yet daily, we experience life-threatening conditions such as crimes, disasters, accidents, and sicknesses. Does God secretly possess evil within his nature, or is there another being in the universe whose sole purpose is to inspire mayhem in people's lives?
God proclaimed that the latter is true, and his name is Satan-the Devil. He is treacherously evil, dangerously deceptive, and seeks to covertly control everything within our world. In his book, The Devil in Modern Eden, author Tom Graneau reveals how the Devil scours the earth looking for people to victimize. He is the architect behind political unrest between nations that results in war; the mastermind behind the corruption in politics, religion, and corporations; the manipulator of injustice; and the instigator of various crimes in our schools, cities, and even our homes. No one-Christian or non-Christian-is protected from his evil intentions.
Will you survive the Devil's pernicious attacks in this life and make it to heaven in the next? That depends on how well you can evade his deceptive tactics to control your destiny. The Devil in Modern Eden not only exposes Satan's diabolical schemes in our world, but also shows how you can defend yourself against the most dangerous personality in the universe."

This book goes into explaining about God and Satan. Using scripture to support the thoughts given the author seeks to explain many of our misconception. While I dont agree with everything expressed in the book it sure gives food for thought. It is a book you want to find quiet time to read as it would be easier to absorb the information. This book covers a lot. You should have your Bible with you so you can follow along with the verses given and their context.
Is the Devil real? Does he really manipulate his minions to interfere in the lives of your average citizen? Would a good God really send people to hell? Yup. The Devil in Modern Eden explores many of the common questions about hell and evil, and what Christians can do to rebuff it. It should be noted that this comes from a blatantly Christian perspective, and focuses on the Christians interaction and reliance on God to combat the wiles of the devil. Knowing that, it is an interesting history lesson and really a very thorough explanation of salvation and how to act out your Christianity in modern life. Aside from the acknowledgement that there is a real devil, and that he influences you through evil thoughts and uses modern versions of old institutions (media, drugs, sex, etc.) I was actually surprised about how light the information on Satan was. I expected more than a very basic intro, and yet this is what I found. Rather it was more of a primer on how to live as a faithful Christian in this day and age, which is a fine topic but not what I was expecting based on the title and synopsis. From a personal perspective as a Christian, I also found this leaning uncomfortably Armenian, with a lot of emphasis on how we influence our own salvation, almost to the point of working our way into God’s good graces by fighting off the devil’s influences, rather than embracing radical grace. Still, I appreciate any acknowledgement of a real enemy and a real fight, as it is too often ignored, even in Christian literature.
