From back cover:
"This book is a modest attempt to put the devil in his place," Erwin Lutzer begins. How can one book strike a blow to our adversary? By pointing out that although Lucifer rebelled so he might no longer be God's servant, he still is. Even today, Satan cannot make a move without God's express consent.

Lutzer contends that we cannot properly understand Satan unless we first understand God. When we stand in awe of God, we will find it unnecessary to stand in awe of Satan.

The Serpent of Paradise will challenge popular conceptions of Satan that play into the enemy's hands. Lutzer demonstrates that Satan's bid for independence was fatally flawed the moment he sinned.

Here is a book that will stimulate your faith and lead you to worship a God who does not lose -- even when Satan appears to win. You will come away with a deeper understanding of Martin Luther's words, "Even the devil is God's devil."
