In our religiously charged atmosphere, here's a topic that many would be too timid to take on: whether or not the devil really exists. Of course, in true Opposing Viewpoints fashion, no definitive answer is given, but Schouweiler fairly examines both sides of the issue. He begins with a documented case of what seems to be demon possession in 1908, then moves to the beginning of devil mythology and its prevalence around the world, looks at devil worship today, and provides a chance for skeptics to voice their opinions on the reality of a devil figure. Illustrated with historical prints and black-and-white photographs, this entry in the Great Mysteries series may have discussion use beyond the sensational. Further reading and sources appended.
