The time is ripe for a fresh look at spiritual warfare and the why of suffering. We live in a new day. For at least three centuries, the word has gone out, especially from academic circles, that modern men and women could no longer believe in the supernatural.

Few doubt today that the academic landscape has radically changed into what has been called the “postmodern” period. What once was ridiculed as irrelevant has now been overtaken by a world awash in all kinds of interest in spirituality, such as angels and otherworldly interventions, surrounded by a remarkable surge of interest in Eastern thought and religions. That there is reality beyond the physical realm is becoming a plausible notion.

For the general public at least, the idea of a universe inhabited with spiritual beings that affect the affairs of this world is becoming as axiomatic as the law of gravity.

Dr. Douglass splits open the spiritual veil to get an unflinching, behind-the-scenes look at the great controversy between good and evil and the seismic aftershocks affecting your life today. Features hundreds of pages of detailed, faithful, and eye-opening commentary from a respected theologian.
