It's been said that the greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he doesn't exist. (It was something like that. Check with Kevin Spacey or Charles Baudelaire.)
Looking at the headlines, you'd have to be a crazy person to say that evil doesn't exist. But is that evil the work of a dark spiritual being and his minions, or can it all be boiled down to social justice issues?
Join Richard Beck on Steve Brown, Etc. for a discussion of his new book, Reviving Old Scratch: Demons and the Devil for Doubters and the Disenchanted. While surveys say that even the majority of Christians doubt Satan's existence, Jesus knew his enemy, and so should we.
Richard Beck is Professor and Chair of the Department of Psychology at Abilene Christian University. His published research covers topics as diverse as the psychology of profanity to why Christian bookstore art is so bad. Connect with Richard at his blog, Experimental Theology.
