Behind the Glittering Mask


Behind the Glittering Mask

"Lucifer will not lightly suffer his mask to be ripped away."

Mark Rutland succeeds in ripping away the devil's mask unforgettably exposing the lies, subterfuges and half-truths that hell uses to entice us down dark and dangerous back alleys. 

Behind the Glittering Mask transports us to a high-powered confrontation between Lucifer, the lord of darkness, and Michael, the mighty warrior archangel of heaven. Their battleground is the Seven Deadly Sins (pride, envy, wrath, sloth, greed, gluttony, lust). Michael's weapon is truth; Lucifer wields deception. Their prize is the destiny of all humankind.

Like C.S. Lewis' Screwtape Letters, this breathaking literary tour-de-force reminds us that Satan's biggest deceptions are the ones that seem closest to the truth.
