Eavesdropping on Lucifer by Donald B. Stenberg

amazon barnes & noble Goodreads

This book is an entertaining and thought-provoking fictional story about religion and modern-day culture from the viewpoint of the devil. It is a fascinating, easy-to-read combination of short stories, history, science, and biblical principles.

The “Boss” explains how he used ridicule, logic, “compassion” and the courts to turn the United States from a Christian nation into a largely secular one. But he complains about how the Son has made his work much more difficult.

The Boss explains to his apprentice that he doesn’t just want people’s souls – he wants to also make them as miserable as possible while they live.

Meanwhile, the Boss’s apprentice has some of his evil work undone by Angelica, while the Boss worries that science may one day undermine his claim that everything on earth is the result of random chance.

Hott Review:

I requested a review copy of Eavesdropping on Lucifer months ago. Before COVID-19. Before the riots. Before the looting. Before the last few months of earth-shattering change that has hit this country.

What I liked: Reminiscent of C.S. Lewis’s Screwtape Letters Eavesdropping on Lucifer is essentially a series of conversations between the “Boss”, Lucifer, and his potential new apprentice.

As we read each chapter we hear the Boss share pridefully with his apprentice what he’s done to destroy mankind. He shares many of his triumphs and how his great works have been overturned. He shares how the good news of the Lord shines through the misery and cultural norms. He shares why God is the choice to be made.

What I didn’t like: It was really hard to see how life is reflected in these pages. It was hard to watch the events play out on the nightly news. As much as I liked Eavesdropping on Lucifer, I can’t like how real it is.
