· Does Satan really have horns, hoofs, and a tail?
· Can Satan read our thoughts?
· What is demon possession?
· Can anything protect us from demonic attacks?

You'll discover exactly what God's Word says--as well as what it doesn't say--about these mysterious beings.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Increase Your Understanding of Satan, Demons, and the Spiritual Realm! 29 novembre 2014
Par Dr. Bob Stouffer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I believe in Satan, demons, hell, and spiritual warfare.

If you are a believer in and follower of the Lord Jesus Christ — but don’t believe in Satan, demons, hell, and spiritual warfare — you are not reading your Bible carefully.

We take two major faulty approaches to the spiritual realm. We either (1) deny its existence or (2) live in fear of a power which is still overshadowed by the power of God.

I fashion myself to be a student of spiritual warfare. I have read about it in the Bible and in commentaries by gifted researchers/communicators. The Holy Spirit has illuminated truths about such warfare to me. I have experienced the warfare directly.

And, now, I have discovered a new resource which EVERY Christian should read: 50 Things You Need to Know About Satan and Demons, by Mark H. Muska, a Professor at The University of Northwestern St. Paul (2014).

This book reads VERY fluently. I was able to read it in just a few hours.

I have confidence in the content, because Muska obviously mapped an outstanding analysis on biblical truth; he details basically every major biblical writing on Satan, demons, demon possession, Jesus’ healing — and in such an excellent flow of analysis. As I am reading commentaries, I can sometimes fall into the temptation of reading through familiar Scriptures, but I could not do so with 50 Things, because the verses and analysis are so inextricably intertwined, reinforcing each other.

Muska accomplished what I always encouraged my high school English students to attempt with writing. He narrowed his subject to a manageable depth and breadth, and then he skillfully presented a definite view of the spiritual realm.

His 50 topics were quite engaging. Passages of Scripture were expertly embedded. The Gospel was “preached” throughout the book, and someone who does not believe in Jesus really is without excuse in responding to the call for salvation on multiple occasions. Muska is extremely responsible in his exegesis of passages, making no faulty conclusions. He interprets texts accurately and leaves room for multiple interpretations when the Bible is not definitive on a subject. In particular, Muska effectively confronts one of THE most common objections to Christianity: “How can a kind, loving God send anyone to a place like hell?” That “chapter” is worth the price of the book alone.

Muska’s book caused me to reflect even more on my beliefs about hell. Many Christian do not believe in a literal hell. I do believe, because the Bible is replete with descriptions of an actual physical place, and Jesus taught often about hell when He was on this earth.

Randy Alcorn has written THE definitive analysis of heaven in his book, Heaven. I wish Muska would expand his analysis of the spiritual realm by presenting a counterpoint to Alcorn’s book in a book entitled, Hell. Musca clearly has the necessary intellect, knowledge, research base, writing ability, and dependence upon the Holy Spirit to write such a book.

I believe ALL human beings are “everlasting” beings. I do not believe in the theology of annihilationism, the belief that the end of our earthly existence is the end of our existence. In other words, even after our earthly deaths, we WILL live forever — either in heaven or in hell. I believe heaven and hell are real place places. I believe heaven is a place of blessing, where I will live forever in the presence of God. I believe hell is a place of eternal suffering — for those who do not know and follow Jesus as Lord and Savior of their lives. Hell is a place of eternal separation from God. An omnipresent God has removed His presence from those in hell. That would be punishment enough. But the Bible also obviously talks about suffering which comes from the fires of hell. I believe the fire is close to unbearable. I believe the fire and smoke are relentless for eternity. And I believe the worst part of the suffering comes from COMPLETE DARKNESS. Fire and smoke and heat and suffering are present, but pitch blackness prevents visual contact with anyone or anything. Can there be any worse punishment, living in complete darkness, tortured by these torturous elements?!

If you are interested in learning about the hidden world of spiritual warfare — for the first time, or as an expert in this realm — this book is for you. You will not be disappointed. The reading will be well worth your time.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 For most Christians, this book is awesome. 27 janvier 2015

Format:Broché
I have a lot of experience in Spiritual Warfare and have gathered much theological and experiential information the spirit world according to the Bible. Any new book I get on Satan, angels, demons or any other "spirit world" topic makes me nervous because 90% of what is out there is bad information and false teaching.

This book, 50 Things You Need to Know About Satan and Demons by Mark H. Muska is one of the better ones. The author seems so make scriptural information the highest priority and tells us to use caution on the rest. For the average Christian, this is exactly what they need. I love what he says about celebrating Halloween. In essence, he says to do it with caution and avoid the more demonic and occult practices.

What frustrated me about the book, though, is that as someone who has experienced a lot about demons, he leaves out some of the less common information or quickly generalizes it at the end of the section as by saying that anything else requires much caution. While I agree with that and believe we should use much caution when it comes to near death experiences, seeing demons and deliverance ministries, I'm someone who was set free from demonic oppression through a deliverance and there have been times when I've had the gift of seership and have seen demons. Is it something God gives me all the time? No. But have there been specific times and for specific reasons that He has pulled that veil back? Yes. And no, I am not charismatic.

My fear with his constant cautioning is that if I hadn't had a well-trained, well-grounded pastor to help explain what was happening to me with the demonic stuff, I probably would have turned to a book like this looking for answers and I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have found them in here. In fact, this book may have kept me from finding out the cause of what was going on and finding freedom from it.

So...as far as recommending this book, I highly recommend it as a general primer on Satan and the demonic. It is very well-balanced and obviously written by someone who seems grounded in scripture. If you are looking for information about deliverance, seership, or any other topic outside what the vast majority of Christians experience, this book is not for you.

I was provided this book free of charge from Bethany House in return for my honest review.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 Satan was the bad guy that tempted Eve to eat a piece of ... 5 novembre 2014
Par Sarah M. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
In our day and age, images of the demonic and Satan are commonplace. They find their way into our entertainment, onto our yards as Halloween decorations and into various facets of our lives. Growing up, I had little concept of demons. Satan was the bad guy that tempted Eve to eat a piece of fruit in the garden and I knew he was red with black horns because Halloween costumes don’t lie. Seriously though, I had a mixed bag of impressions of what these dark forces looked like and how they affect our lives. As a teen, I remember reading some of Frank Peretti’s books and having my interest piqued. But, I didn’t have any kind of framework for understanding these bad guys. Several years ago, our family had a series of life changing events that brought spiritual warfare to the forefront of our lives. It became a daily conversation as we worked to understand this little known concept.
I believe that demons are real. With the Bible as my handbook, there are simply too many references to ignore. In Ephesians 6:12, we read “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”(NIV) As I started to learn about this subject, initially it was very confusing. It was hard to know where to start putting the puzzle together. When I meet people who are encountering the subject for the first time the way I did, they often get overwhelmed the way I did. However, I was recently given a book that I feel is a great one for jumping into the topic. I received a copy of 50 Things You Need to Know About Satan and Demons, by Mark Muska. It takes 50 different questions we encounter in our culture and in our churches and takes a logical approach to answering them.
Questions covered in this book run the gamut. They include things like:
Who is Satan?
What is demon possession?
Why should I believe what the Bible says about Satan?
Can Satan read my thoughts?
Is it possible to actually see demons?
If I ignore Satan, will he go away or just leave me alone?
What is spiritual warfare?
…and many many more questions.
As I read through the questions, I appreciated a few things about this author’s approach. First, he states clearly upfront that he is using the Bible as the source of authority on this topic. If you don’t accept that as a source of authority, you will struggle with this book, but at least he is up front about that. Secondly, he incorporates culture all through it. Most of the way we “see” the demonic is in our culture but it is often done with artistic license with no regard to its accuracy. He does an excellent job of addressing those various areas and then comparing them to what the Bible has to say. Sometimes there is a clear answer and sometimes there is not. Either way, the information is presented in a factual way. I would highly recommend this book especially for those who are new to the subject of spiritual warfare. For those who are very familiar with the topic, it provide a good summary and helpful talking points for interacting with others.

“A lot has been said about Satan and demons in music and movies, on the Internet and TV, but it can be difficult to figure out what's true and what's folklore. Professor Mark Muska uses the Bible to answer the most-asked questions about Satan and demons, including: Who is Satan? Does Satan really have horns, hoofs, and a tail? Can Satan read our thoughts?

50 Thing You Need to Know about Satan and Demons by Mark Muska is a short (135 page) book that takes on one topic at a time, clearly and plainly in a question and answer format.

I wondered when I started this book what was going to be the defining authority for these answers. Would it be the cultural norm, would it be general consensus among the faiths, would it be folklore or would it be biblically based? I was not disappointed. In the Introduction the author makes it quite clear that the answers to the following 50 questions would be based on the Bible. “This study is based on the conviction that the Bible is our one reliable source of truth about the devil” – page 9.

With that question being answered, I read the book. I have to say that I was quite impressed at the amount of questions that were covered and was, at times, surprised by the answers. The topics discussed range from Satan, demons, spiritual warfare and the occult… and as stated, answers to the questions posed here were answered with cited Biblical references, or not (as the Bible does not always address out questions with the clear cut detail that we would like). This is an interesting book that can help a new, or seasoned, Christian answer questioned that are posed.

About the author: Mark H. Muska is Associate Professor of Biblical and Theological Studies at the University of Northwestern St. Paul. Dr. Muska received his EdD from St. Mary's University and his ThM from Dallas Theological Seminary.

Format:Format Kindle

Summary:
50 Things You Need To Know About Satan and Demons is a starting point for the subjects of Satan, demons, and spiritual warfare. The book addresses the important focus for Christians, pertaining to myth and folklore versus what the Bible states.
Mark Muska clarifies all of his points with Bible verses.
Examples of chapters:

Who is Satan?
How does Satan act against humans?
What is exorcism?
Why does Satan want to destroy us?
Do demons inhabit specific places?
Why did Jesus forbid demons from speaking when He cast them out?
What is hell? Is it a real place? Where is it?
What is spiritual warfare?
Are witches real?

My Thoughts:
Books on the subjects of Satan and demons are rare in the Christian market. I have read the book Spiritual Warfare: The Battle For God's Glory by Jerry Rankin (link given to read the review). The Kindle price at this time is .99 cents. It could be most Christians avoid these subjects. Avoiding the subjects does not make the reality of them go away.
What I loved about 50 Things You Need to Know About Satan and Demons is the debunking of myths and folklore. So much of what we know is from media, especially in regards to Hollywood movies. The most notable are the movies The Exorcist and The Omen. It is important for Christians to understand we are saved by God's grace. Although we live in the world and can be oppressed by Satan and demons, this will only happen if God allows it to happen for the purpose of developing our character and growth in Christ Jesus. We can trust God because He has already won the war. Our focus should not be on Satan and demons, but on our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Mark H. Muska reminds often to "take heed" and "any experience that we claim to have that goes beyond what the Bible teaches must be approached with great caution."
Today is Halloween. Christian parents approach the day often not knowing what to do. Some parents ignore the day all together, and others allow their children to wear innocent looking costumes and celebrate the day. Muska's advice is to "take a strong stand against occult or evil."
