What People are Saying About This
"With the same wit and humor characteristic of his earlier work, but with a seriousness of tone that belies the sensitive nature of the subject, Henderson journeys into the cultural whitewater to lift up the much-avoided biblical theme of warfare with Satan and the dominion of darkness. . . . Henderson's purpose is not to condemn the church, but save it."
Erik Vincent, Teacher of High School Advanced Studies
"Henderson's prophetic voice warns Christ's followers that although the ultimate war has been won, the battle with relentless darkness continues. To be naive, he argues, is to be vulnerable. . . . This provocative book challenges our paradigms, warns of the dangers of the 'therapeutic deism' that so pervades the church today, and calls readers back to their original mandate to make disciples as a part of a dynamic community."
Sherri Hutter, Director of Strategic Initiatives and Integration, The Coca-Cola Company
