Awesome
I always new there had to be someone working behind the scenes to keep me from believing that grace could really be that good!

Very good
I received this audiobook for the purpose of doing a review.

Narrator Thoughts - If I could have picked a voice for this audiobook, I would have chosen someone like David Heath. His deep voice adds the sinister touch that blends with the book to make it believable. He got into the character so well that I was trying to remember that this was just a fiction book based on spiritual realities.

Book Thoughts - The book itself was very good. I thought that Andrew Farley did an excellent job of explaining some of the ways in which the enemy deceives and manipulates us. It was an excellent book for that. It also helped me to remember that I need to rely completely of God. Some of the ways he puts things are brilliant and eye-opening.

The only note I would put on this is that it's not as good as The Screwtape Letters. C. S. Lewis in my opinion wrote the best book on how the enemy of our souls wages war. This book is good, but as far as passing the Screwtape Letters, no it comes in a close second.

Good but not Lewis
Short Review: This is an update to CS Lewis' classic Screwtape Letters. Intended to be a captured propaganda/training manual for young demons instead of letters from an older demon to a younger. Screwtape Letters was the first Lewis book I remember reading on my own (probably around 12) and I have read it at least a couple times since (but not recently). But this didn't feel quite as good. It is less subtle for one thing. Also while I think that Farley has a lot of the right ideas, I think his solutions are sometimes over the top. For instance, I agree that sometimes people's repeated confessions of the same sin only serve to focus the person on the sin and they never live in freedom from the sin. But that does not mean that confession is bad, it just means that there are bad ways to do confession.

I would give this a 3.5 if I could. There are some good ideas here, but it lacks some of Lewis' literary subtlety and sometimes goes a but too far trying to remind us that we are saved by Grace and not by our own works (which I theologically affirm.)
