Based on Ephesians 6:11-12: "Put on the whole armor of God, so that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil," Powers and Principalities is an analysis of the New Testament's view of the influence of transcendent powers on the social, political, and religious structures and institutions of the world and, consequently on the lives of individuals and nations. It considers the origins of this view and gives specific examples of the powers in contemporary life.
