I'll keep it short and sweet:

'The Screwtape Letters' was better.

Is the Devil omniscient or merely opinionated? I don’t know. He certainly has lots to say, as he rants for page after page in his “blog from the basement office.”

At first, I felt like I just wasn’t getting it. I shook my head over the first dozen pages, thankful this lurking evil was all a myth. Then, I considered the many who do take the Devil seriously, imagining him as a sort of personified version of everything wrong with the world, and to them, this book must be absolutely frightful! How do

When you copy a masterpiece the risks are very high. Pugh does not make you forget C.S. Lewis but he does a very nice job of talking about the evil that surrounds us and the masks and illusions that we have that keep us from a more redemptive people.

From the craft point of view there is a slight problem because there appear to be elements that surprise even the Devil. There is "the enemy" who is God and there are humans, and there are the Demons and the one writing this blog, the Devil. But the

I loved the concept of this book. It could make for a great comedic film, starring someone like Jack Nichols as the blogger Devil. However, I didn't get very far into this book before I cast it aside. I'm getting too old to force myself to finish a book that I'm not enjoying.

Problem? The author is taking himself way too seriously, and the tone of the book is very preachy. The internet is a tool for evil? Facebook is a tool for evil? Does Jeffrey Pugh in direct contact with God or Satan, that he

Shelves: theology
Jeffrey Pugh's book is for the modern age what C.S. Lewis's Screwtape Letters were to an earlier age. The Devil writes a blog and deals with all the issues of the day from torture to politics to theological matters. Pugh's Devil does represent, it seems to me, an "anti-Hauerwasian" position, so I think you'll see the "bias" as you read. All togehter however, this was an interesting and challenging book. Like any set of blog posts, you can't read it all in one sitting!

The premise: What if Satan kept a blog? Pointedly fun read based a bit on The Screwtape Letters, by C.S. Lewis, but most definitely a book for the 21st century.
