    Outside of the Bible, this book should be required reading for all Christians, especially those who are involved in ministry full time.

    "Wonderful"
    If you could sum up Bait of Satan in three words, what would they be?

    Total Christian Experience


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Well, there is only character in that the author is the reader and he speaks on the challenges of a Christian walk. He illustrates several experiences from unforgiveness to various sins we all face in our walk and gives testimonials to offset each one as to how God advenged the very elect dispite the bait of Satan...


    Have you listened to any of John Bevere’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is my first listen for John Bevere and he does well to me


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, however I did have to stop in intervals to insure I was fully absorbing different sections

    "Fantastic book"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is the kind of book that you might buy for someone else and then find that you needed it most!


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

    Probably hearing that Jesus said many things that would be considered offensive as He spoke the truth in love. He didn't always say what people wanted to hear, but what they needed. Not that I want to encourage offense, but the avoidance of conflict is not always the most ultimately loving thing.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There were many great illustrative stories.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Can't recall right now.
