What happens when the spiritual powers of a pagan culture come up against the power of God? Michael Fape writes with an extensive knowledge of the African context of tribal societies steeped in generations of witch doctors, shamans, and animist superstition. The battles that ensue are fascinating and allow us to find new insights into the way God works through the spiritual realm.
This book will open your eyes to what is going on in the spiritual realm and give you confidence of God's provision for us when we come up against anti-Christian powers.

Praise for the Print Edition
Michael Fape brings together an awareness of western critical exegesis and familiarity with African critical realities. The result is African experience of the world of spiritual powers shedding light on somewhat neglected areas of biblical teaching, and simultaneously biblical teaching speaking sharply to elements of African culture. In the process we are enriched by learning from both.

He shows that the message that Christ is supreme over the world of darkness is particularly significant for believers anywhere where they are threatened by the forces of Satanism and magic. This book is a powerful encouragement to Christians not to lose confidence in Christ in their war against the forces of evil.
—I. Howard Marshall, Emeritus Professor of New Testament, University of Aberdeen
A very thorough treatment of this important subject... the decisive overthrow of the powers of darkness by Christ at the cross.
