Overview
What We're Reading Now
"It is a very readable, yet scholarly account of the development of the modern image of Satan using the canonical and apocryphal Biblical texts, as well as church teachings."
Erik Stadnik - Books-A-Million, Alexandria-Penn, VA
From the religious historian whose The Gnostic Gospels won both the National Book Award and the National Book Critics Circle Award comes a dramatic interpretation of Satan and his role on the Christian tradition. With magisterial learning and the elan of a born storyteller, Pagels turns Satan's story into an audacious exploration of Christianity's shadow side, in which the gospel of love gives way to irrational hatreds that continue to haunt Christians and non-Christians alike.
