    1. TRIPP! Tripp, I’m beggin’ ya man, please keep me on your list of reviewers for future books! I haven’t laughed this hard in a long time. Needless to say, I got absolutely nothing done yesterday.Tripp’s quest to find God by first finding the devil may be as serious as it is bizarre, but it’s just so doggone funny. Tripp confesses that you can’t find God through philosophical argument, but then proceeds to search for Satan in precisely that logical manner, scheduling interviews with a [...]


    2. I was attracted to the overall subject of the book and definitely recommend it as a nice weekend read but I found the content to be lacking. I don't mind snark and satire but at times the amount in this book overwhelms. The author claims to be approaching many different methods of finding the devil with an open mind and genuine interest but most of the time it seems as though he entered conversations and experiences with his mind already made up, sometimes being quite disrespectful all the while [...]


    3. Too much snark and intellectual gyrations to be helpful in disentangling the theological issues and moral implications of devil-talk among Christians. While the author's Socratic methods may work well with undergrads, they were probably off-putting enough to have doomed his quest to interrogate believers in the Devil from the start. I was disappointed because I hoped that this book would shed some light on the problem of Satan--the epilogue hints at a solution, but unfortunately the bulk of the [...]


    4. So, not least of all b/c I know the author and he might see this review at some point, I have to say I loved this book! I laughed SO much reading this! Not only because of a similiar background as the author, as well as a similiar sarcastic nature, but because so many things that we see every day and just chose to overlook are laid in front of us to laugh at. And possibly to cry about as well. Read this book. I bet you will laugh, I bet even more that you will think. What coup to be able to do b [...]


    5. I read this as a required reading.d.wait for it.e author of this book was my 'Religion in American Culture' professor. I can't say I'm giving this book a 4 star rating just for the sake of appeasing him; this is a well written book that is as witty as it is serious. The author is careful to present serious information with serious affect, but his ability to present such a sensitive topic in a humorous light can not be denied. (For those of you that are suggesting this book is too snarky.you shou [...]


    6. This is a unique, funny, yet important book. Tripp York makes it his mission to find the devil in order to find God. Sounds pretty crazy until you read it and found out how crazy and satanic we believers can be. I will never look at a glitch in the church sound system in the same way. If you want to be challenged in your thinking about God, the devil, and Unitarians then you need to read this book.


    7. I was really looking forward to reading this book - but it turned out to be one of the worst books I've ever read. The sad thing is that I agree with the author on most of his points - but his pompous attitude, cynicism and condescending tone was unbearable. I can't believe that Brian McClaren could find anything good to say about this book.


    8. This is an excellent read. By far one of my favorites on the topic of religion. If you ever find yourself a student at Virginia Wesleyan College I highly recommend taking any of his classes. He is a great professor and very knowledgeable in the area of religion!


    9. Wonderfully clever book, and laugh-out-loud funny at times (that can not be said of a lot of books on theology). The only negative is I could have read the epilogue and gotten the gist of the book. It was, however, worth reading the other chapters.
