For many Christians, the concept of spiritual warfare involves scenarios that are often enchanting, extravagant, and even parapsychological. Hard-lined skeptics respond by treating it instead as an archaic and outmoded superstition--a farce. While we might think a simple reading of Scripture will settle the matter, this has not been the case since those writing on the subject are (tacitly) influenced by dubious philosophical commitments and presuppositions left unchecked. This groundbreaking book incorporates philosophical reasoning in formulating for the everyday Christian a robust biblical doctrine of spiritual warfare. It is a serious but readable attempt to understand what spiritual warfare is by addressing both the theological and philosophical issues involved. The Conqueror's Tread dares to take a reasoned approach to pressing questions such as:
-Do supernatural beings really exist? If so, what are they and what can they do?
-Are there territorial spirits?
-Is exorcism a part of spiritual warfare?
-Does spiritual warfare involve speaking aloud, prayerwalking, and breaking curses?
-What can evil spirits do to Christians? Can Christians be demon-possessed?
-Why would God allow his people to be in a state of conflict with evil spirits?
-What is Christian holiness and how do we pursue it?
-What role does apologetics have?
and many more!
