Satan's attacks and snares are the normal experience of both believers and non-believers. They started in the Garden of Eden with Eve's temptation and continue to this very day only to be diversified and adapted to the society's idols, needs, desires, and experiences. But how what lies behind these snares and devices? What are his goals and, in fact, what can he accomplish when we think of the sovereign God? Well, Puritan Thomas Brooks identifies a large number of snares and devices that are calculated by Satan to (1) keep the non-believers as far from the Gospel as possible and to (2) keep the Christian from enjoying the peace and felicity that comes from believing that same Gospel and from living a Gospel-centered life. The author goes on by identifying Christ-centered and Scripture-filled remedies to each and every of these snares. Every true Christian will find comfort and encouragement in this insightful and profound book. This book has been originally published in 1866. Current edition has been proofread, typeset for eBook readers, and slightly updated for modern readers.
