This is why El Diablo didn’t pass out cigars at Jesus’ birth. Happy he was not that the Son was not only going to address our sins but He was going to eternally and temporally salvage those who believe from sin’s fetid effects. This is why slewfoot energized Herod to put a hit out on the Nazarene when He was a wee little baby and why Satan’s demon inspired ilk are anti-Christmas to this day. Jesus’ birth equated to Satan’s demise.

But..Marissa Elliott, a Boston-area adjunct literature professor and an evangelical Christian, said she has trouble understanding what all the fuss is about."The only thing that upset me was the quality of writing," said Elliott, who read the book about a month ago and considered it no better than your average beach novel.Elliott, who admits she is probably an atypical evangelical, says the book hardly deserves a glowing recommendation.

("Equally shocking, however, is the humanity the film pulls out of the characters. Somehow, scum and murderers though they are, the audience still finds itself rooting for them. Sure, you murder for a living and I write about movies, but much of our underlying realities are the same.")
