Book Talk: The Devil in Modern Eden by Tom Graneau
Fascinating and enlightening, The Devil in Modern Eden, meant for the Christian audience, provides the reader with a dauntless perspective on the continuous presence and interconnection with the Almighty God, mortal men, and God's ultimate adversary, Satan.
Beautifully written by spiritual coach Tom Graneau, the book depicts the situations around our world in these modern times as somewhat similar to what had transpired during the time of Adam and Eve, as evidenced by the endless conflict of good and evil.
The author says the so-called "Garden of Eden" still exists today, albeit a new world now tagged as the "Modern Eden."
Before delving into the atmosphere surrounding the "Modern Eden," Graneau first introduces us to both God and Satan to enable the reader to better understand the two rivals' personalities as well as their influences toward humankind.
God has always been perceived as the Supreme being with a very forgiving heart and full of love, care, patience, and mercy towards mankind regardless of man's sinful ways. But, lo and behold, the Almighty can also be jealous and vengeful towards mankind depending on certain situations that so displease Him.
As far as Satan is concerned, the book provides the origins of why an angel of the highest order was cast out of Heaven, which would then explain the devil's relentless pursuit of disrupting God's relationship with his greatest creations who are armed with free will. Also, Graneau elaborately discusses the realm called Hell to further impart more knowledge in the minds of the readers.
Due to man's wickedness, brought about by the continuous influence of evil during those times, God performed elaborate "rescue missions" to reunite Him and His children.
Zooming in to the present, Graneau tells us about the three distinct groups of people that were formed, groups that were used as the basis of God and Satan in measuring their own separate successes.
Practical demonic influences affecting Christians and Non-Christians in modern culture, especially in entertainment, business, and the church itself, are discussed. We are made to think, "How do we effectively survive these evil tactics to manage our destiny?"
The Devil in Modern Eden contains loads of insights from the author, backed by biblical scriptures, to explain inevitable misinterpretations that have been clouding our minds for years.
Who is God? Who is Satan? How vital are their influences in the new world? Can man still escape the vile clutches of the devil?
Read on and be enlightened.
Reviews and What Readers Say
" The Devil in Modern Eden explores many of the common questions about hell and evil, and what Christians can do to rebuff it. It should be noted that this comes from a blatantly Christian perspective, and focuses on the Christians interaction and reliance on God to combat the wiles of the devil. Knowing that, it is an interesting history lesson and really a very thorough explanation of salvation and how to act out your Christianity in modern life. Aside from the acknowledgement that there is a real devil, and that he influences you through evil thoughts and uses modern versions of old institutions (media, drugs, sex, etc.) I was actually surprised about how light the information on Satan was. I expected more than a very basic intro, and yet this is what I found. Rather it was more of a primer on how to live as a faithful Christian in this day and age, which is a fine topic but not what I was expecting based on the title and synopsis. From a personal perspective as a Christian, I also found this leaning uncomfortably Armenian, with a lot of emphasis on how we influence our own salvation, almost to the point of working our way into God’s good graces by fighting off the devil’s influences, rather than embracing radical grace. Still, I appreciate any acknowledgement of a real enemy and a real fight, as it is too often ignored, even in Christian literature."

" The truth may be hard to accept.
Evil is in politics, corruptions around the globe and deceptions that seem all good and well at first then an insidious, diabolical scheme comes forth
Written so you will be scared into deliverance. How to defend yourself against deceptive lies.
The cover suggests a cover up but, opens the book and start reading. Extreme and enlightening."
