From the perspective of the Roman soldiers, Jesus was potentially a leader of what in our generation might be considered a terrorist cell group. They probably had seen fellow soldiers hurt or maybe even killed by insurrectionists in the past. And having someone in custody Who claimed to be the rightful King of Israel and Who had a following of men like Peter capable of armed resistance was in their minds a golden opportunity to crush a dangerous faction, and even to have some fun in the process. Jesus took their abuse in silence. He was in fact the chess Master sacrificing Himself to lure his enemy into a stunning checkmate situation. When someone comes to Christ it is a cosmic defection.

Like others of Marzulli's books his writing style is conversational which makes it easy to read. He often repeats the point he is trying to make. This repetition is a teaching style to help the student remember the important things. I don't mind that repetition as it isn't without merit. With each topic covered he leads us to the same conclusion. I read his testimony at the end with great interest.
Amy own us nothing like his and I find the testimony of others fascinating in how God moves to dra Like others of Marzulli's books his writing style is conversational which makes it easy to read. Amy own us nothing like his and I find the testimony of others fascinating in how God moves to draw His children back to Himself.
Some of the world events and speculations about the outcome have already come to pass. But that does not detract from the lesson. The Kindle versions could use some copy edit and reformatting of chapter titles to make it more aesthetically pleasing but other than that I am satisfied with the book as having met and exceeded my expectations.
Sep 19, Daniel Fazzina rated it really liked it. Eye-opening and insightful. Provides a comprehensive look at the war between heaven and hell. Good stuff! I had an opportunity to have L. Marzulli as a guest on my radio show, "Divine Intervention" and to hear him tell his story first hand. He was amazing, and very interesting. God and satan constantly playing chess I chose this book because L. Marshall has written some very informative books.
He has a way of putting information together to make sense to the average person like me. He deals with satan's trying and failing to stop God's perfect plan for us. How Satan is checkmated by the Most High Lord A most interesting book describing how Satan is trying throughout history to decimate the Jewish people.
He is outclassed, outmatched, and always destroyed by the one true God. Sep 28, Theresa Carver rated it it was amazing.
