    Well I am somewhat fascinated The beginning is slow The style is a bit similar to when Anne Rice gets into writing about history which means better paced than your dry old history book, but still, not the fastest read.But at loc 1253 starts the Devil s commandments, and they are perfectly wonderful I ve always considered myself an atheist, but perhaps I have been wrong about that.Couple of my favorite examples from the Philosophies The path of life must be thine own, let not others choose for thee If ye wish a chance at greatness, follow thine own path If it should lead to misery, so be it At least it is a misery of thine own choosing And remember, ye may always try again If thou findest an inequity, ye must correct it If thou art witness to an injustice, ye must not stand idle If ye come upon pain, then give relief For if the lot of Man is to improve, the seer must be the doer There are and so many of them dictate the way I already live Thou art stronger than ye can ever know, search for the strength that d wells within It is there It is waiting And somewhere out there, someone needs you than you can ever imagine Heed not the beliefs, laws and actions of others unless they suit thee And be prepared to die for this It s written in a very King James biblical style and some reviewers have complaints about this, but I guess I figure if so many read the actual boring bible, then why not this, an alternative look I like the way it speaks to the deep centers of my brain, and reminds me to question cui bono Who benefits Sometimes I forget this and find myself blindly following the masses, sleepwalking as it were.I was surprised to find myself, in the text And blessed be those who find succor within themselves, for they shall be the insight of the Child, taking strength from the power within and not without Blessed also be those who fear not God, for they shall be the blood of the Child, and they shall give no sustenance to the minions in the heavens Felt a gathering of tears Had to reflect a bit.As the narrator says, this was not a demonic text it s a book of hope, as a better way to live my life And a warning we should not follow others without knowing why we do so We should understand what we believe and whyso there you have it Now you now The question is, what will you do If you re not a fan or organized religion, or if you ve always felt is if your basic nature sets you apart from society somehow, if you re not all that great at thinking what They tell you to think give the Devil s Apocrypha a read You might find yourself at home.

    It is very seldom that I am unable to finish a book out of sheer tedium Even if a book promises little after the first few chapters and continues to show no evidence of improving some further chapters later, I am inclined to persevere I know that writing a book is no easy task, and once committed, I feel I owe the writer the common courtesy of finishing what they spent months, if not years, crafting.I say this, because John A De Vito s The Devil s Apocrypha is one of those rare exceptions I simply could not be bothered to finish it This is not because I am religious I m not and therefore found his writing inflammatory far from it The fact is that De Vito has managed to take an interesting enough subject matter Judeo Christian theology from Lucifer s point of view and make it thoroughly dull Not only that, but he has chosen to deliver it in turgid, melodramatic King James Bible prose, which reads horribly.If you want to read something from the devil s perspective which is genuinely decent, and doesn t pretend to be some lost manuscript painstakingly translated by the author as De Vito makes out, try Glen Duncan s I, Lucifer Just don t go anywhere near this drivel.

    I ended up getting this because it seemed rather intriguing I really enjoyed To Reign in Hell by Steven Brust and I thought maybe this would be on similar lines I was sort of confused at first when I was reading through this book, mainly in terms of if this was fantasy or if the author actually thought all of this was real Personally, I think its fantasy, but I don t know about it because he goes through lengths to actually include pictures of these ancient and lost manuscripts So maybe he is trying to tell the world something Basically this book deals with the finding of a lost manuscript in Italy, supposedly found in an old house that was in the author s family It recounts the meeting of a man and Lucifer Basically Lucifer tells the man the true story of what happened and basically says that everything that was passed down in the Bible was a lie or twisted in some fashion Lucifer isn t the real enemy of our souls, but it is in fact the deity a lot of people worship in Christ God The story is actually pretty interesting, but sorely suffers from the lack of having an editor go over the material This book mostly had me until it started delving into the alien theory, where God has left this planet and is now mounting an army on another, it reminded me quite a bit of some story line concepts from Area 51 by Robert Doherty However, I found the inter dimensional beings saying they are Gods Angels a far plausible concept to stomach Overall it s a very ambitious story and I really did enjoy reading it, because its concepts are very close to my own I do like how the author took Biblical passages and then told the story from another point of view it s something we certainly don t get from the Bible Whether this is told from the point of view of someone who thinks it s real, or from fantasy, I still found the tales enjoyable and I liked their twist on things On a philosophical note, I have to completely agree with this books core concept Now I m no devil worshipper by any means, but the demonizing of the Bible did make sense This book certainly didn t convince, nor was this a revelation to me I concluded these things a long time ago I know there will be many that might say my soul requires saving after reading this, but this books premise is true and I cannot deny the possibility After all the premise of their devil seems to be based on a being coming in the guise of something wonderful and beautiful, but instead wreaks complete havoc on the Earth and ruins people s lives Has this not happened because of worshippers of these religions that profess love for thy neighbor I simply cannot deny the reality of the situation and if you are a like minded individual and enjoy fantasy science fiction this book might be quite a breath of fresh air for us that oppose I have to give this an extra star simply for its bold move in this light for I quite enjoyed how it painted a reality so close to our own.

    I m a jaded satanic atheist who was imprisoned in Catholic school as a punishment, and I can say with confidence that if I were to have a spiritual religion I d blindly follow this novel The Devil s Apocrypha adds so much to the Christian mythos and overall it s such a good story I recommend it full heartedly

    I couldn t finish the book, as the style it is written in was to biblical in nature and reading it became a chore

    WARNING If you are easily offended by anything which throws less than a positive light on Heaven or the Church, do not under any circumstances pick up this book You ll really hate this one and label it as blasphemy.Luckily, I don t have any trouble with this type of fiction, and I don t believe that this was meant to be anything but fiction Looking over the Internet, however, I was surprised that there were people who totally believed in what was said between the covers Ah well, to each his own, I guess I enjoyed it because it was a different approach on the origins of faith, religion and the Church, but I liked it mostly because it says something about questioning what we as humans are taught to believe.plot summary The book begins with its author finding an old manuscript written in five different languages It was hidden in an old building on the last remaining property belonging to the author s family in Italy He took it home to the US, and eventually translated it He explains how the manuscript came into being, and the rest of the book, outside of the epilogue, is the translation.First off, the manuscript reveals that God and the archangels have come from a different universe which is dying thanks to the natural law of entropy To save themselves, they must find another place, so by manipulating their energies, they arrive in the void just before our universe has been created Once the task of creation is complete, they realize that there is none of their original universe s energy to sustain them, so they seek another solution Think flip flop of everything you ve ever learned in Sunday school, and you pretty much have the story.You ll either like it or you ll hate it, and you ll probably decide as much by Chapter One If you get past that, you re in for a great read.

    A book that starts off with a great premise doesn t necessarily have to end well The premise this is the Bible told from the Devil s point of view Through his apostle and the Three Mad Prophets, he decides to tell His version of how things went down after God created the world starting right from Adam and Even till Armageddon No doubt that makes for a great story, and for effect De Vito writes the book in a biblical English language But therein lies the problem Intelligence is not defined by big words and similarly profundity in a novel is not measured by its writing style The plot itself sounds like a series of events doesn t really question anything doesn t challenge anything it s just another point of view The book starts strong and the eerie description of the Three Among Men will send shiver down your spine The foreboding style does wonders for the chapters, but then it slows down real fast There s no real progression that keeps you glued and a quarter of the way in and you get the point God is bad the Devil is trying to help mankind For me the highlight of the novel was the chapter with the Commandments by Satan some of them really made you think and will resonate with most people I wish it also resonated throughout the book Alas, a great concept but not the best conceived.

    This book was self published, and quickly became an .com international bestseller Further proof that writing a great story is important than who you know.This is very familiar story that s given longer roots and turned on it s head It asks the familiar question What if everything we think we know is false It s classic role reversal, but on a grander scale.What if Satan were the true savior, and God the villain Where this story goes terribly right is that it doesn t just drop you into the plot and tell you what s what It tells you the why and how Where did God come from, and why did he create us How could he get away with the greatest trick ever played I loved all the twists on familiar biblical events and people Lazarus being my favorite Another aspect I loved is that it s written in the style of the Christian bible, which really gives it an air of authenticity.My only problem with this book is that, at times, it could be a little full of itself.And, yes, this is a work of fiction I think

    Concept Biblical stories told from the perspective of the Fallen ones Delivery If it didn t have the stupid beginning premise a secret manuscript discovered in his grandpa s house or the half King James half modern writing style I d enjoyed this book much .Consensus Two things I really liked about this book 1 the whole concept of creation, what God is, what the angels and demons are, and how the Genesis stories played out made sense than the actual Bible stories 2 The chapter Book of Philosophies has some great twists on ancient wisdom like the 10 commandments and such.
