I remember seeing a discussion about this; unfortunately, I don't
recall where, and the book I suspect is still in one of 29 cardboard
boxen.  I think it was in _Quoth the Maven_ by William Safire.  IIRC,
he discussed both "God is in the details" and "The devil is in the
details", finding plenty of people who quoted them but no origin.
