"Territorial Spirits" is a comprehensive compendium of practical strategies for engaging spiritual warfare in the battle to crush territorial spirits present in the world today. The work of eighteen contributors has been compiled by C. Peter Wagner.
The book is divided into three parts:
â€¢ The Issues: Principles and Problems
â€¢ The Ministries: Pastors and Practitioners
â€¢ The Analysis: Perceptions and Perspectives
The writings of highly respected, and diverse Christian leaders, pastors, professors, missionaries, anthropologists, and itinerant preachers confirm the fact that in the effort to evangelize the world involves a confrontation with principalities and powers that include Territorial Spirits.
I read with special interest the analysis of anthropologist Jacob Loewen. He draws from experiences as a Bible translation consultant in South America and Africa to share his conclusions and his unique insight into Old Testament teaching as it relates to "Divine Territoriality and Specialization."
Michael Green, professor of evangelism at Regent College in Vancouver is a scholar and a practitioner. His analysis highlights the concepts of "Principalities and Powers," specifically in: Jewish belief, in the Graeco-Roman World, and in the New Testament. Timely and relevant.
This is an important book for today's generation with the existing apathy found in many churches and rampant unrighteousness and oppression throughout the world.
Scholars, pastors, missionaries, and lay Christians will welcome this study for its scholarly presentation, diligent research, and the practical hands on experience of the contributors.
