Publisher's summary

What would you do if a man claiming to be the devil himself showed up in your town? From best-selling Christian fiction author Daniel Patterson comes his latest Christian fiction suspense thriller, The Devil's Game. One part thriller, one part suspense, and a touch of romance, The Devil's Game is an uplifting story about a young pastor whose work takes an unexpected turn when a man shows up claiming to be the devil himself. Fresh out of Bible college, James Buchman has found a good life for himself as the pastor of a small church in rural upstate New York. But beyond the joy of new friends and young love lurks a deadly secret. When inexplicable events leave innocent souls teetering on the edge of destruction, James can't help but wonder if the congregation's mysterious newcomer may somehow be responsible. Faced with a force of pure, malevolent evil, is James' faith and courage enough to vanquish darkness? One thing is certain - darker times are coming.

Good vs Evil

This was an interesting read. It held my attention all the way through. I liked that it was billed as a Christian thriller and it actually gave credit to God for the power that defeated satan. I will definitely check out the rest of this series.

Power of prayer

A must read. What an in depth story about the power of prayer and reliance on our great God! It's a perfect example of how the devil walks among us as the deceiver. The characters come to life in this audio book to where I felt I was in the story. I would relate this book to those such as Frank Peretti's "This Present Darkness" and "Piercing the Darkness".

intriguing

This book reminded me a bit of the old book "This Present Darkness." It held my attention and was full of suspense. I enjoyed it and will check to see if there is a sequel.

Great Christian Fiction

I was surprised and really enjoyed the story which had me guessing until the end. Loved that it was true to Biblical knowledge without being unrealistic. Highly recommend for all- but be aware that this is written with Christian understandings .

A good read, good for the spirit too

Overall I liked this and it was a Christian encouragement. I would recommend it. However, while it is always difficult to imagine how one would portray Satan, his overall objectives in this particular book seem rather beneath him theologically. Satan's overall objectives are so in keeping with his "Hollywood" persona. However, the heroes are refreshing. And their mode of battle is just what it should be....prayer.

Was just okay

This seems like a good effort by a novice writer. Author should have shelved it and done a rewrite later because the idea is a good one, but writing is very weak. Went into too much detail about stuff that didn't matter to the story. I kept thinking that a better writer could have made this a really good read. The characters were predictable & the story had no surprises or anything to make this page-turner. I would have returned it but I had already just done so with 2 books. I regret the purchase. I almost wish writers would do re-writes *after* listening to their stories being read. The narrator was so-so & can only work with the writing. I literally cringed when the other pastor was introduced. His first words were something like "Well, bless mah soul!" and I felt like I was listening to an imitation of Butterfly McQueen. Ugh.

I was bothered by the pastors being called reverend and the story lacked Christian passion
