Anyone who comes across this thread about the temptation of the devil I would like to direct you to two books.
One is a classic CS Lewis’ The Screwtape Letters
The other is a shameless plug for my own book which will deal with spiritual warfare in the style of Mr Lewis.
My book is called The Joy of the Lord of which the first 7 chapters can be found at scribd.com/amarp_49
St Michael the archangel, defend us in battle
Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil
May God rebuke him we humbly pray, and do thou O Prince of the Heavenly Host
By the power of God, cast into hell,
Satan and all the evil spirits who wander through the world
seeking the ruin of souls.
