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, the seven-volume Spiritual Warfare Collection brings together leading theologians and ministry leaders to present major positions on subjects such as Satan, demons, and fighting spiritual battles. These works offer critical thinking and balanced views on this important theological topic.

With Logos Bible Software, this collection is completely searchable, making the text easier to access for sermon research and personal study. Scripture appears on mouseover in your preferred translation, and the Logos version integrates seamlessly into your digital library, so your dictionaries and other reference tools are only ever a click away.

Understanding Spiritual Warfare: Four Views

  • Editors: James K. Beilby and Paul Rhodes Eddy
  • Publisher: Baker
  • Publication Date: 2012
  • Pages: 240

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Understanding Spiritual Warfare offers four 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 the following questions: What is the nature of Satan and the demonic? What role does spiritual warfare serve in the Bible and how central is it to the biblical narrative? How should Christians conceive of and practice spiritual warfare? Can individual human beings be “demonized,” and if so, how does this happen and how is it to be dealt with? Can a Christian be demonized? And do “territorial spirits” exist? If so, are we called directly to engage them in “strategic level” spiritual warfare?

This volume 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 can 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.

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 wants to understand and hear the case for various positions should start here.

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.

3 Crucial Questions about Spiritual Warfare

  • Author: Clinton E. Arnold
  • Publisher: Baker
  • Publication Date: 1997
  • Pages: 224

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

In 3 Crucial Questions about Spiritual Warfare, Clinton E. Arnold brings his exegetical skill and extensive knowledge of early Christianity to bear on the contemporary understanding of the spirit realm. Spiritual warfare is an integral part of the entire Christian experience, he explains. To think that a Christian could avoid spiritual warfare is like imagining that a gardener could avoid dealing with weeds. Our goal should be to gain an accurate and sober-minded understanding of spiritual warfare—not a view tainted by frightening superstitions and odd practices.

Clinton Arnold uniquely combines the clear-headed thinking of a well-trained biblical and historical scholar with the heartbeat of an evangelist/minister. This work integrates readability, thorough biblicism, awareness of contemporary trends, and a refreshingly irenic spirit. It makes an important and significant contribution to the ongoing discussion on spiritual warfare. I place it on the top of my ‘must read’ list for any who are working through issues on this topic.
