Book Review and GIVEAWAY!!

Giveaway is over! the winner is 

Shannon! Thanks!

I'm so excited I get to do a little Giveaway on my teensy tiny blog! But first the review...

As One Devil to AnotherAs One Devil to Another by Richard Platt
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This book was a nod to C.S. Lewis's Screwtape Letters. It is written in that style, of a mentor demon to his nephew trainee who is on his first assignment. It is interesting as a fiction account, but even more so as a thought-provoking look at how Satan attempts to pull us from God! Many different areas are looked at, including our pride and ambition, television, internet, among others.  It definitely made me think about how these things (internet was especially convicting for me!) pull our focus from God and make it easier for the devil to do his work, as we lose our "real" connection with people in exchange for a false sense of community.  The only negative I have is that I just finished it up a few minutes ago and am confused about the ending; I feel like I need to go back and reread since I must have missed something... But I would definitely recommend this book!

I recieved a copy of this book from the publisher for my honest review.

  1. Hi Jessica!

    This books sounds like something I need RIGHT NOW! Too many things pulling me this way and that... easy to loose sight of God's purpose!

    My favorite book... that's a hard one since I'm such a book lover! I love the classics but recently I've been a fan of the Harry Potter series, The Help, and The Hunger Games.

    Take care,

  2. at the moment my favorite is the Hunger series :)
