Incessant Warfare: A Critical History of Spiritual Warfare through the Ages presents both biblical and historical evidence of the continuing battle between God and the forces of evil. Bringing to bear a quarter-century of study of the issues, Chinaka Samuel DomNwachuku shows how this evidence supports the claim that God has called his church to take up arms in this battle. He explains how the church's theology and practice can engage and overcome the forces opposing God. Because God fights this battle in all times and places, Incessant Warfare draws upon people's experiences recorded in the Bible, witnessed in history, and lived in contemporary cultures in Europe, Africa, and the Americas. The focus remains on experience and does not dwell on speculation. Incessant Warfare offers a guide to equip all Christians with the knowledge they need to face the challenges that arise in living faithfully in the midst of this struggle, both in their service in the church and in their witness in daily life. Pastors will find the depth of historical and spiritual insights strengthening their leadership. Theologians will discover in this critical history the evidence they need to support their thinking, writing, and teaching. In the end, Incessant Warfare speaks a word of hope, reminding readers that even though the struggle seems long-perhaps never ending-Christians can remain undaunted in this battle, trusting that the power of God ultimately will overwhelm the powers of darkness.
