This is such a thorough treatment of the subject that I left with very few unanswered questions. Some of those questions have to do with modern demon posession, which he touches on, but not deeply.

Unger grounds his study deeply in the Old and New Testaments giving us a breadth and depth of insight on the war going on behind the scenes since the Fall. If the bible does not cover the topic it is not in this book, and I love that. Far too often sensationalists write to solve problems and address situations using scripture that does not apply. The only weakness I find with this great resource is its dispensational presuppositions concerning the Last Days, but that is a small thing. Over all this is a book that would benefit every Christian.

Biblical Demonology deals with a topic so rife in our culture, yet neglected by pastors the world over. Ask the average church-going individual if a Christian can be possessed and count how many different answers you get. Ask the average missionary if they have ever encountered demonic forces. You'd be amazed at the disparity! And yet few authors tackle the subject with such scholarly attention. This is by far the best book I have ever read on the topic of demonology. There is little substance not backed with references for further study. Unger's work is a great addition to any pastor's library. It answers questions raised by society. Great for dealing with those "Paranormal Activity" buffs. Great read!

Very academic. Written by a well educated man of god. Scripturally accurate. Excellent exposition on the doctrine of demonolgy. If you are of the charasmatic bent or want to rid demons from your city, you will be disappointed. If you are seeking truth in regard to this doctrine, get it!

"Biblical Demonology" is one of the only, if not the only, authoritative book that endeavours to explain the workings of demons with the Bible as the sole source of study. And this is extremely important for any Christians who believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God.

"Biblical Demonology" begins with an evaluation of the field of demonology and how different ages, cultures and races have viewed, and evaluated, the existence and workings of demons. Unger demonstrates that Christianity, prescribed by the infallible Word of the Bible, is the only medium with which demonology should be studied. Even Judaism, the `cousin' of Christianity, fails to properly deal with demonology, which is evidenced by the excessive superstition of demons which inhibited the workings of the Jewish life.
Once Unger establishes the Bible as the best source for demonological studies he then goes on to discussing Biblical demonology in demon possession, magic, divination, necromancy, heresy, word governments, Eschatology and deliverance.

This book is certainly the best material out there for studying demonology from a strictly Biblical perspective. It is written in a very attractive and addictive style. I have no hesitation giving this book the highest possible rating.

There's a lot going on, on TV in novels, all over the place. The supernatural has made a comeback, in spite of science, etc. I wanted a conservative biblical discussion of just what we can count on as accurate theological knowledge concerning these things. Merrill F. Unger has provided that. An interesting read and great reference.

When I was seeking more information about how to grow in my Christian life over 30 years ago, one of the first reference books that was recommended was Unger's "The New Unger's Bible Dictionary". It was/is an excellent resource for understanding the tenets and history of the Bible. So when I saw this book, also by Dr. Unger, as a Kindle freeby one day I jumped on it. It is well worth the cost of buying it if you missed the free offer.

Dr. Unger wrote this material in 1945 as a dissertation and partial requirement for the degree of Doctor of Theology. Even though we don't think of 1945 as being "modern" the ways of Satan to confuse, trap, and derail the Christian life are as old as humanity and what was true then is true now. I'm very grateful for the Kindle built in dictionary because I had to use it frequently to get the whole meaning of what was being said. The language is very intellectual but I don't even have a college degree and I can understand what he is saying.

It helps to have a good background in the Bible because many scripture references are used. Also, Dr. Unger tells it like it is--no politically correct allowances are given for questionable activities. He explains how the workers of Satan use divination, astrology, mediumship, speaking to the dead, and all other forms of occult practices to lead people into sin and away from the truth of God's authority.

The first few chapters are a little dry and seem to be the most outdated, expecially since we don't often refer to people of other religions as "heathens" any more. But that was common to the time of the writing and the truths have not changed, just the words we use to describe them. By the time the author gets to chapters 6 and beyond it starts to get really interesting.
