I had the privilege of receiving a copy of this book to review as well as an extra copy for a lucky reader!
“As One Devil To Another” by Richard Platt is an incredible literary work. Written in the format of C.S. Lewis’ “The Screwtape Letters”, Platt gives an insight into our world and culture today from the fictional perspective of two demons. Throughout the book, Platt gives great commentary on the plots of the devil to steal men and women away from “The Adversary”–who is God. As he details the schemes of the demons to bring their clients to demise, he also weaves in biblical truths as a foundation for his writing. The Bible tells us that the demons know who God is and that they fear Him. They know His Word, they know how He operates, and they use that to their advantage in deceiving you and me. These letters written from a demon who is mentoring another show just how much they know and how wise they are in using this against humans.
There were a few sections in particular that really made me think, one of them being about pain and the other about media influence and how the devil uses those. I don’t want to give too much away, but both sections were a great reminder of God’s Grace and His perfect plan for our lives.
The entire book was eye-opening and caused me to think about spiritual warfare from a new perspective. I recommend this book whether you have read “The Screwtape Letters” or not (I have not yet read them!)…I think it will heighten your awareness of the spiritual warfare happening all around us continually.
