Whenever you're engaged in battle, it's always good to know the enemy so you can figure out what strategy to use to defeat them. This book is packed with scriptures and quotes from General Authorities, past and present. I highlighted so many sections so I can go back and reference them as I need to. The main point I felt the author tried to get across is that Satan is, indeed, real and his objective is to destroy the world by taking us down individually. Because of choices he made, he's miserable and wants us to feel the same.

This book is not all doom and gloom, though. There is a winning formula and it is outlined in this book. There are things we can do here and now to win the battle. We each have our agency and are able to choose for ourselves who we will follow. This book says it's a guide for Youth and Young Adults, but I still learned plenty and it's a great resource to use in the future. I highly recommend this book to Youth, Young Adults and Adults!

Shedding Light On The Dark Side is a quick, compelling, and educational read. The cover of the book reads, "A Guide for Youth and Young Adults," but a more accurate description would be, "A Guide for Youth, Young Adults, Middle-Aged Adults, and Everyone Else." In his book Stephen J. Stirling explores the Devil's history with mankind, exposing him for the powerless fool that he is. In doing so Stirling empowers readers, young and old, with the knowledge to face, fight, and overcome temptation by focusing on the light--and not the dark--in this world. Buy a copy, you won't regret it!

Empowering

I was completely inspired by this book. It made me realize that many of the insecurities, the fears, and discourage in my life come from Satan and I am now empowered me to turn to christ more when I feel these negative emotions. While this book made me aware of the powerful presence that satan and his followers have, the book is really about how God's plan and the delivering power of Christ. Light will always overpower darkness.

Stephen J. Stirling's book, Shedding Light on the Dark Side, exposes the identity and nature of the Adversary in a relatively short guide aimed at youth and young members of the Church, though it's a good refresher for adults too. The text is written in an easy-to-read style, complete with a little light humour from the author. The thrust of this guide is simple yet important: Satan is real, but so is the Saviour - we need to choose the Lord and reject the Deceiver.
For me, the most poignant message in this book is the need for us to recognise that dark feelings and negative thoughts have their source in the devil, that they have a very really affect upon us, individually and as a society, and that we must turn to the Lord to vanquish them.

Absolutely fascinating, masterfully written, hard to put down. The subject of this book has been avoided by writers for a long time, and for good reason. Most people are reluctant to delve into or focus on the darkness we all know we should avoid. However, Stirling manages to provide insight from the scriptures as well as tasteful, real-life examples from the lives of both modern and ancient prophets and Latter-day-Saints that show both how very real and how very unappealing the master of deceit truly is. This book will give you added perspective, help you recognize when you are being used and manipulated by the wrong spirit, and fuel a renewed desire to follow our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The insights in this book will motivate you to follow the straight and narrow to the end.

Very impressed at how well the book was organized, easy to read, and very thought provoking.
It very well laid out the power and mindset of Satan devoid of any glamorizing of his persona.
It leaves you with an understanding of just what he is capable of without any enticement or
craving to know him more intimately.”
