    Story
    "EXTREMELY Helpful Information"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    YES


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Bait of Satan?

    Can't list just one. I have listened to this book twice so far. Once immediately after purchasing it last year and a second time about a week ago. It is very instrumental in helping me to forgive and continues to teach me how not to allow offenses to cause me to operate in a manner that the God of the Holy Bible disapproves of. It also helps me to release anger, frustration and move on in my life without giving so much focus on the horrible things people do and say sometimes.


    What does John Bevere bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    John Bevere is honest, succinct, clear in explaining himself and backing points up with biblical scriptures. I appreciate his awesome way of helping readers to understand his points and the way he verbally illustrates things.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It helped to open my eyes to how Satan can work through our emotions in a way that can be harmful to us.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a must have book and I'm so thankful that I learned of it through someone I met several years ago.

    "Surely a masterpiece"

    I really love this book as it deals with a well-known issue. It's practical and easy to understand, but still super profound.
    This is the second time I go through it.
    Thank you so much

    Story
    "Might be good for some but wasn't for me."
    Would you try another book from John Bevere and/or John Bevere?

    No


    Would you be willing to try another one of John Bevere’s performances?

    No


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I think some people could gain something from this book but there are many other books that are much better out there.


    Any additional comments?

    Not saying this book is horrible but it defiantly didn't rub me the right way. at first i thought i didn't like the book because maybe it was something i need to hear but just didn't want to but after i finished it and prayed i realized this is not the case. The main problem i have is how self important the author is. The second is the message, i believe sometimes you will have to do stuff that isn't %100 what you want but you should never blindly obey someone just because they say God says it.

    "Don't be trapped"
    What did you love best about Bait of Satan?

    Like so many of the testimonies used in this book I have to say that I like the way it points out to me places that I am baited and trapped, when I thought that I had overcome those things in my life.

    His own experiences.
