The main part of the movie is set in 1916, but the book being read by the Judge/Lucifer (Will Smith) while he's relaxing on the couch is Stephen Hawking's, "A Brief History of Time" which won't be published until 1988. He is also wearing a Jimi Hendrix t-shirt. However, as Lucifer speaks about how his past, present, and future is all now, having these out of time items is part of the concept.
