Have you ever pondered Satan's side of the biblical story? I haven't either, but I was given the opportunity to read it anyway. Surprising enough, I found it very humorous; I hope that was the author's intention...
I found myself entertained by The Autobiography of Satan, by William A. Glasser. I found myself laughing while reading; as it was laced with humor as much as fact. Written as though Satan were having his story transcribed, he shared how he was not created as the epitome of true evil, that evil was around long before he even came to be! He also wanted to share how God was not the creator of all things, nor the center of it all. Understand, I'm a Christian, so this did a bit of digging on my upbringing- but I put it all aside, for the sake of this book.
I found The Autobiography of Satan entertaining, but not enough for me to be happy with everything shared. I found Satan's words, humorous at times, I even felt bad for him, but came away feeling the story was more for those who love a good argument. A lot of work went into this novella, great research, but it just didn't hit me right. Satan went as far back as the age of man's scientific beginning and told of how an excuse for evil came to be, for the wrong of the world, as a painting on a cave wall. It was good, but books that clash with my faith usually go on my furthest shelf. Not because I'm brainwashed, but because I'd never change how I feel on the words of Satan- Hello! lol
I have great respect for Glasser; he's a highly intelligent man and he worked hard to make this a book many non-believers would love, but as for me...? Nope. Excellently written and full of biblical exploration, check out The Autobiography of Satan in both paperback and ebook. Cheers!
