Carus’ real agenda begins to appear as we near the end of the book, and is only fully revealed in the final chapter

Carus’ real agenda begins to appear as we near the end of the book, and is only fully revealed in the final chapter. He argues that our image/understanding of the Devil has progressively softened, until the Devil at last becomes simply the left hand of God, the necessary dark side that propels us forward ( the father of all misunderstood geniuses, p. 487). The Devil, it turns out, in Carus’ Enlightenment-based faith in human progress, is simply fuel for the great engine of science that will propel us into a bright future. This faith was understandable.

a well written book entailing the evolution of the concepts of satan, the devil, and evil in ancient and modern religion and spiritual practices.

If you're looking to find out where all these devil myths came from, this is the book to buy. It is an amazing encyclopedia of historical knowledge. The work of Paul Carus goes beyond the expectations. It proves that all religions came from myths and they are nothing but man made stuff used to create fear in the minds of men. I strongly challenge you to read it.

I found this work disappointing, or perhaps I was misled by the title. Although Carus is clearly well-read in all the major religious traditions, this book is not a work of scholarship, as the title suggests. It is rather a loosely organized collection of oversimplified historical summaries, quotations and illustrations, and broad, often unsupported generalizations that seem tacked onto the text. Carus is often uncritical of his sources, often lists (to most of us, obscure) authors by last name only, and often reports alleged facts and incidents with no attribution at all. The result lacks focus and coherence: a book without a center.

Carus’ real agenda begins to appear as we near the end of the book, and is only fully revealed in the final chapter. He argues that our image/understanding of the Devil has progressively softened, until the Devil at last becomes simply the left hand of God, the necessary dark side that propels us forward (“the father of all misunderstood geniuses”, p. 487). The Devil, it turns out, in Carus’ Enlightenment-based faith in human progress, is simply fuel for the great engine of science that will propel us into a bright future.

This faith was understandable . . . in 1900, when the book was published. But in the early 21st century, it just won’t fly.

Very informative, but would have liked more pictures. Really wish the cover picture was in the book. All in all a good book.
