Ronald L. Kohl, Our Ancient Foe: Satan’s History, Activity, and Ultimate Demise (Phillipsburg: Presbyterian & Reformed, 2019), 151 pp.
Our Ancient Foe is edited by Ronald L. Kohl. The subtitle of the book is a fitting description of the contents, namely – Satan’s History, Activity, and Ultimate Demise. Kohl has assembled a team of scholars and expository preachers to unveil the diabolical devices of the devil. The likes of Tom Nettles, Derek Thomas, Joel Beeke, Kent Hughes, and Sinclair Ferguson make solid contributions that help readers understand how the enemy of our souls operates.
Each essay is deeply grounded in Scripture as the activity of the evil one is explored. The contributors explore Satan’s character, his schemes, and how believers are delivered from him.
The final chapter proves especially helpful. Sinclair Ferguson writes about the consummation of all things in a chapter entitled, All Things New. The writing is basic enough for new believers but also challenges readers who have been walking with Christ for some time.
I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review.
