Publisher's Summary

Not every lie sounds untrue.

Some lies are repeated so often they seem to be common sense. That's why lies about God are so dangerous. The Gospel According to Satan examines eight lies the enemy wants us to believe and provides eight lines of counterattack against them. The lies include:

  • God just wants you to be happy,
  • you only live once,
  • you need to live your truth, and
  • just let go and let God.

Jared C. Wilson reveals why these lies appeal to us, shows how they harm us, and provides ways to counteract them. We can renounce Satan's counterfeit gospel, but first we must see it for what it is.

Accompanying charts are available in the audiobook companion PDF download. 

"Enumerates the major ways the Devil uses his cunning and calculating ways of luring us off the narrow road of God's grace. We will all do well to read this book and confront the lies we are being sold." (Kyle Idleman, senior pastor of Southeast Christian Church and author of Not a Fan and Don’t Give Up)

"A unique, compelling, and even witty look at the devil's current greatest hits - lies we urgently need to unmask." (Sam Allberry, speaker for Ravi Zacharias International Ministries and author of 7 Myths About Singleness and Why Does God Care Who I Sleep With?)

"One of the most thought-provoking writers in the Christian world today.... He doesn’t just describe the tantalizing falsehoods of our age, he exposes how they've slithered into our hearts." (Matt Smethurst, managing editor at The Gospel Coalition and author of Before You Open Your Bible)

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

What lies are you believing?

As a pastor, I did enjoy Wilson’s summary of the eight lies Satan tries to sell to the church and to the world. It was informative and helpful to say the least. Was it ground breaking? No. But it was a good book to remind us of the devil’s schemes and how he tries to influence our hearts, minds, and souls.

I’m not Reformed, so I disagree with some of his theological points. He is a huge advocate with PSA and he may be correct. But he failed to research recapitulation atonement held by the early church and present it in his book. In Wilson’s mind, we must have violence to gain forgiveness with God. You may agree with him and I would say more power to you.

Overall, if you’re interested in discovering how Satan is planning against you and I and want to combat the lies from hell, this would be a good book for you to listen too. Enjoy!

A Book for our times

As always, Jared C Wilson delivers with aplomb. Great read and very encouraging. I love the way he dissects the the 8 lies we commonly believe about God and about serving God. Highly recommended!

Necessary Corrective Truth

The Gospel According to Satan is a grace-filled, yet convicting book that pokes at the beliefs we Christians hold that are contrary to what God has actually said in Scripture. A week after listening, I'm still ruminating on some things that the Lord is working on correcting in me.

Jared's writing is accessible for anyone, but filled with thought-provoking spiritual truths and always the Gospel of Jesus.

The narrator was good, but I would have preferred to listen to the author narrate his own book.

Highly recommend.

TDS

could have been a good book but -Trump derangement syndrome- has a pretty good hold on him and really destroyed some of his logic. it's sad what a weaponized media has done to some people who do not possess a strong rational mind.

What lies do you believe?

This was well written and clearly spoke to the heart of man. We often believe lives that sound like truth, but are often just far enough away from it that we are lost. Great narration, and great content.

Much needed

This book takes an insightful and biblical examination and answer to modern clichés and sayings that are embedded in modern evangelical "theology". Simultaneously, the true gospel is brought into the light.
