Product Description

The topic of spiritual warfare is an issue of ongoing interest in a number of sectors of the contemporary church. In most non-Western ecclesiastical contexts, the reality and importance of spiritual warfare is a given. Yet in the contemporary Western church, it remains a topic of curiosity and discussion.

Recognizing the significance of spiritual warfare for today's church, this multi-view work brings together leading theologians and ministry leaders to present major positions on the subject in dialogical fashion--all authors present their views and then respond to each of the other views. Each contributor interacts with five questions:

(1) What is the nature of Satan and the demonic?
(2) What role does spiritual warfare serve in the Bible and how central is it to the biblical narrative?
(3) How should Christians conceive of and practice spiritual warfare?
(4) Can individual human beings be "demonized"? If so, how does this happen and how is it to be dealt with? Can a Christian be demonized?
(5) Do "territorial spirits" exist? If so, are we called directly to engage them in "strategic level" spiritual warfare?

Understanding Spiritual Warfare provides a balanced, irenic approach to a much-discussed and often controversial topic. Offering a model of critical thinking and respectful dialogue, it highlights the differences between contributors, discusses a full range of important topics on the subject, and deploys biblical as well as theological arguments. The book will serve as a text in courses relating to theology, missions, practical theology, and spiritual warfare and will be of interest to pastors and church leaders.

Author Bio

James K. Beilby (PhD, Marquette University) is professor of systematic and philosophical theology at Bethel University in St. Paul, Minnesota. Paul Rhodes Eddy (PhD, Marquette University) is professor of biblical and theological studies, also at Bethel. Together they have coedited four successful multi-view volumes, and each has authored or edited a number of other books.

Endorsements

This illuminating book helps readers sort through the plethora of approaches to spiritual warfare. Positions exist in addition to the four explored here, but the range offered is informative and will help the reader sort through why he or she agrees or disagrees on various points. Anyone who want to understand and hear the case for various positions should start here.
-Craig Keener

Spiritual warfare—shouldn’t all Christians be engaged in it? And if it is indeed warfare, doesn’t that mean there is a lot at stake? Or are some versions of warfare a paganization of the Christian gospel? There are many ‘four views’ books on the market, but this one on spiritual warfare is one of the few that ably addresses important issues of global Christian theological and practical concern. No seminary education is complete without it.
-Amos Yong

Finally we have a theological, biblical, and multidisciplinary assessment of spiritual warfare, a topic which continues to divide and inspire many Christians. Here is a resource that helps put the dominant hermeneutical and spiritual orientations in perspective. The choice of topic and contributors is bold and innovative and the editors’ introduction is brilliant. Talk about a dynamic dialogue! Highly recommended.
-Veli-Matti Karkkainen

A topic as controversial and divisive as spiritual warfare has long needed a volume like this. Whether or not one wholly embraces any one of the four views presented here (I don’t), hardly a text is left unexamined or a question unanswered. The church cannot afford to live in ignorance of such a vital subject, and this excellent treatment goes a long way in bringing us the knowledge we need.
-Sam Storms
