Christians can’t be afflicted by demons . . . or can they? A groundbreaking work on the topic, Unger reveals Biblical principals that refute this thinking and rattles the cages of Christians who believe they are exempt from demonic attacks. Faithful followers of God aren’t merely susceptible to demonic attacks, but are likely targets. We fight a spiritual war against an enemy whose power we don’t typically understand, but being aware and alert can empower us for the imminent attacks. With wisdom and urgency, this book delivers crucial answers, not sensationalism—helping us to realize not only who and what we are up against, but that through Christ, we can overcome. Written over 30 years ago, the wisdom revealed in this book is even more applicable in today’s culture.

Most Christians at least acknowledge the existence of demons, especially since they are portrayed as real in the New Testament, no doubt about it. Many assume the Christian believer is more or less automatically protected against demonic influence or attack. So the question becomes, can demons influence Christians? And, if so, how much? Possession? This book answers those questions and much more in no nonsense, straight-forward information, from the Bible and the personal experiences of believers—quite a few stories, all interesting, are included through the text.
