Did you ever ask any of the following questions?
- Why would God Who is good create Satan who would be evil?
- When did Satan become evil?
- Did the serpent originally have legs?
- How does the devil’s lies impact our lives today?
- How does original sin affect us today?
- Who were the Nephilim?
- Did pain exist before the Fall?
If you have, I have a book to recommend to you. Written by Bodie Hodge, The Fall of Satan: Rebels in the Garden, is set up in easy-to-digest nuggets of Scripturally based information to help readers come to knowledge and understanding about Satan, where he came from and how his work impacts our lives today.
The Devil is pleased when we ignore him, pretend he doesn’t exist and when we pay him more attention than he deserves. The author of this book makes none of those mistakes; though The Fall of Satan: Rebels in the Garden is technically about Satan, the real emphasis is on God and His Word. As Martin Luther said, “The Devil is God’s ape”; the author of this book concurs with that point.
My take? As a homeschooling mother of many, I find this book very useful in answering questions (theirs and mine); therefore this book has earned a permanent place on our bookcase. I would highly recommend it to families as a study or devotional aid or to churches for their libraries.
