Book Summary of Precious Remedies Against Satan's Devices by Thomas Brooks


In 1 Peter 5:8-10, the apostle Peter warns us against the devices of Satan: “Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary, the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same kinds of suffering are being experienced by your brotherhood throughout the world.”

This warning remains unnoticed by the world and much of Christendom. The seductive influence and terrible power of Satan hardly registers a thought in our modern age. If anything, Satan in his red suit, tail, horns, and pitchfork is suitable for a laugh and nothing more. Our inability to take his influence seriously is our undoing.

Precious Remedies Against Satan’s Devices explores the devil’s methods to draw the soul into sin, to keep Christians from fulfilling their duties, to doubt and question their condition, and to trap and destroy all kinds of men. With every snare resulting in deception, entanglement, and the undoing of men’s souls, Precious Remedies provides timely and informative instruction to stand up against the wiles of the devil.

“Christ, the Scripture, your own hearts, and Satan’s devices, are the four prime things that should be first and most studied and searched.” (p. 15) As Christians, let us not be caught unaware of Satan’s vast influence over our lives, but rather, keep watch and pray, “Lest Satan should get an advantage of us; lest Satan overreach us” (p. 26).
