Many Christians live as though they are effectively alone. However, there is another realm of intelligent life that plays a role in the world— angelic beings. This book explores the doctrine of angels and demons, answering key questions about their nature and the implications for Christians’ beliefs and behavior, helping readers see their place in the larger biblical plotline that includes supernatural beings. An understanding of the reality of angels and demons encourages believers to be vigilant in the light of spiritual warfare and to be confident in Christ’s victory on the cross.
About the Foundations of Evangelical Thology series: Biblical truth doesn't change, however the issues that the church faces with each generation do. As theology addresses both the truths of Scripture and contemporary issues, a need arises from time to time to review and revise systematic theology. The Foundations of Evangelical Theology series proposes to incorporate insights from Scripture, historical theology and philosophy in order to produce an up-to-date work in systematic theology. Embracing the historical orthodox doctrines of the church, the series attempts to discuss broadly based evangelical theology. Alternate evangelical and non-evangelical options are discussed as well. To ensure that these works of systematic theology go beyond just understanding to true life application, the doctrines presented will be given practical application to everyday life.
This series brings the best in scholarship to the advanced user, but is accessible to the beginner in theology as well. Technical terms, when used, will be defined.
