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" 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.
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.Read more ›
