Of all the demons, monsters, fiends, and ogres to preoccupy the western imagination in literature, art, and film, no figure has been more feared – or misunderstood – than Satan. Known for centuries as the pitchfork-toting demon and concierge of hell, Satan evokes fear and fascination among the faithful and faithless alike.
But how accurate are the popular images of Satan? Most people understand that the Satan we know and fear today originated in the pages of the Bible. What they may not know, however, is that he actually began as a rather low-level angelic figure in the Old Testament, and, even in the New Testament, he bears little resemblance to the horned devil of our nightmares. So how – and why – did this rather minor biblical character morph into the very embodiment of evil?
T.J. Wray and Gregory Mobley guide readers on the journey to retrace Satan’s biblical roots, shedding light on the Devil’s slow and steady metamorphosis through the pages of holy writ, stopping along the way to explore the influences of other religious cultures and extra biblical writings that helped Satan assume his final form.
