Satan: His Personality, Power, and Overthrow by E.M. Bounds

Pray, Pray and Pray some more! God loves is and the Devil hates it. Too often the worldly view of the Devil is one of a mischievous horned red guy with pitchfork and tail. Or that of a tempter, a bad guy who can be outwitted and dealt with by worldly means. In Satan: His Personality, Power and Overthrow E. M. Bounds reminds us that that is far from the truth. "It is seldom that one finds a book on prayer that goes thoroughly enough into the subject, and at the same time with a deeply devotional spirit. Mr. Bounds has the gift of insight, and with this a faculty for selecting words to express precisely that which responds to the heart-hunger of those who are seeking spiritual enlightenment."-Sunday School Times. Bounds brings to light the origin of the Devil, his personality, his power, and methods and points to our exposed positions and the defenses we have against him. Edward McKendree Bounds was a clergyman of the Methodist Episcopal Church South and author of eleven books, nine of which focused on the subject of prayer. Bounds was a practicing lawyer at age nineteen and after three years, began preaching for the Methodist Episcopal Church, South. At the time of his pastorate in Brunswick, Missouri, war was declared. Bounds became a prisoner of war after refusing to take the oath of allegiance to the Federal Government. Upon release he served as chaplain of the Fifth Missouri regiment until the close of the war.
