About-

“Deliver us from (the) evil (one)” is the heart’s cry from the Lord’s Prayer. Evil wears many faces in our modern world. This book connects the Lord’s Prayer to troubles of our times, be it attacks from Satan, the wars around the world, the scourge of racism, or the mass shootings of our time. The subtitle of the book identifies the scope. This book blends both deliverance from demonic bondage and witness to the powers in relation to political policies and government. While the book aims to be a biblical theology on these topics, it seeks also to address the praxis: how these evils are confronted through healing-deliverance ministries and what people of God say and do in witness to the powers. The two streams of response to evil are really one as a faithful response to the saving work of the Lord God Almighty through Jesus Christ’s victory over Satan, sin, evil, and death. “Love your enemy” confronts evil with power to transform!

Endorsements & Reviews-

“In this stimulating, well-written, original, and important work, William Swartley demonstrates, from both Scripture and the church tradition, how closely spiritual warfare and peacemaking are linked together. Because he takes the existence of both systemic and individual evil seriously—and the triumph of the cross more seriously still!—this book has the potential to significantly reframe the way followers of Jesus think about and respond to evil at both an individual and systemic level.”

—Greg Boyd, Senior Pastor, Woodland Hills Church (Maplewood, Minnesota); Founder and President of Reknew



“There are very few people who combine in one coherent and convincing argument spiritual sensitivities, biblical scholarship, pastoral passion, expertise in holistic health and peace studies, and practical experience in deliverance ministry. This is Swartley's unique gift to the body of Christ. Bounding off of every page is the good news that evil does not and will not have the final word! An essential read for a beleaguered church and a weary world.”

—James R. Krabill, Core Adjunct Professor at Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary
