I’ve been meaning to read this book for years, and I finally got around to it. I am usually highly critical of “Christian literature” due to my lack of belief in the institution of religion. Surprisingly, I really enjoyed this book. One of my main contentions with religion as a whole is the hypocritical tendencies of the members. While I respect those who have a strong sense faith, and adhere to the principals that religion teaches, I feel like a number of the people I come across say they are Christian but do not live by Christian values. Simply going to church or doing some charity work does not make a good person, or a good Christian for that matter. Written from the viewpoint of the Devil’s agents, this book offers a poignant view into what it means to live what you preach. Despite the fact that I do not claim any specific religion, this book made me step back and reevaluate my approach to the world an my daily life.
