       Additional Information  
     
      John A. De Vito's critically acclaimed book, The Devil's Apocrypha, has become an instant cult classic. Written in biblical English, The Devil's Apocrypha is a retelling of the Bible from Satan's point of view.

    An Amazon.com international bestseller, it is a tale that begins in another universe, before creation, and ends with a chilling prophesy. It describes the origins of God, Satan and the Angels, their journey to our universe, and the battle for heaven. It tells of God's manipulation of Man, the reason for his commandments...and why one being dared to try and stop him.

    The movie rights have been optioned by Daniel Farrands of Halloween 6.

    There has been much debate by readers as to whether the book is truly fact or fiction. Two groups, The Church of the Fallen and the Illuminati of Baphomet, have actually formed churches based on John's book.

    John is currently working on a trilogy, which uses the prophecies of The Devil's Apocrypha as its basis. He is also working on a graphic novel and a screenplay. John was once the lead singer of a New York punk band called The Printed Circuits and still writes lyrics in his spare time.

    Synopsis provided by the author.

    The battle between good and evil began long ago. Before history, God and Satan fought for the dominion of heaven. And God was triumphant. We all know the story. The tale has been told for thousands of years.But it's all a lie.

    For millennia, we have heard the tale of Satan's expulsion
    from heaven, of his defeat at the hands of the Lord God. But what if that'snot the way it happened?

    A manuscript has been uncovered, written over a century ago
    by a priest who was visited by the Devil himself. A priest who left the church to seek out. Three Mad Prophets and learn the truth. It is a tale that begins in another
    universe, before creation, and ends with a chilling
    prophesy.

    You will finally learn the truth about the origin of God,
    his journey to our universe, and the battle for heaven. You will discover why God manipulated the flesh of our race, the logic behind his commandments...and why one being dared to try and stop him.

    Here is the true story of Satan and God...and it's like
    nothing you've been told.
