The Lucifer Diary: A quick book review

I’m not sure how many, if any of you, have heard of or read The Lucifer Diary: Story of an Angel, but since it is one of my favorite books I will share my thoughts with you.
The story follows the adventures of the angel Lucifer, from his life in Heaven to the banishment on Earth. It is told from his perspective and the details put into the book are quite extensive. The reader gets a really good grasp on the thoughts going through Lucifer’s mind as well as the emotions swelling through him as he betrayed God and was sent to Earth. From here the book details his exploits and persecution of humanity, following every major Biblical event. Lewis R. Walton paints a very beautiful picture and sheds light on a story not often told. The only con I can think of in this book is that it seems at times to want the reader to feel a certain sympathy for Lucifer/Satan, and I’m not sure if that was the author’s original intent. Nonetheless, the pro’s outweigh the cons and I give this book 4.5/5 stars and recommend it to everyone.
