Sermons by the Devil by William Shuler Harris

“The most deceived man of all is he whose mind is influenced by the Evil Spirit and yet he believes that he is besought by the Good Spirit. We hope to reach some of such persons whose eyes are color blind and whose ears are so impaired that they alone cannot distinguish between the voices that are calling them downward and those that are calling them upward.

“The author sought the aid of Divine wisdom in producing this book, and he now depends upon the same power to carry it into the channels of His own choosing.” — Rev. William Harris, from the Preface.
