Thinking Clearly and Biblically about Heavenly Beings, Spirits, and Spiritual Warfare
Does Satan really exist? Do people have guardian angels? Should you believe the angle stories or demon possession stories you hear? Is the angel called "Michael" just another name for Jesus? Information on angels and demons is rampant today, but most of it isn’t trustworthy.
Sense and Nonsense about Angels and Demons by Kenneth Boa—author of spiritual formation bestseller Conformed to His Image—helps you cut through the clutter to see what the Bible really reveals about angels, spirits, and demons.
In this book, you'll learn about:
- The fascinating history of "angelology."
- What an angel is—and what it isn't.
- What angels do and why.
- What angels may look like at the rare times when they do appear.
- The "Angel of the Lord": when an angel is more than an angel.
- The devil and his angels.
- What the Bible really says about the origins of Satan.
Get ready for some surprises! This book will help you set aside your preconceptions and pierce through the myths and misinformation to gain an accurate, truly biblical perspective on angles and demons.
