    The book “Understanding Spiritual Warfare: Four Views” provides academic views of four different perspectives and with positive engagements of contributors on the topic of spiritual warfare.

After reading the book I find myself close to the view as outlined in the ground-level deliverance model by Boyd. Wink sees spiritual warfare manifests itself in the world through massive institutions and social structures and systems evils. Wink’s view of “Satan is more a function than a personality”. He says that Satan is presented by Scripture as one of God’s servants rather than one of his enemies.

    juxtapositions dominate the relationship between the traditional academic life and a spiritual life. In a time when traditional Western thought advocates a dualistic approach of either/or, the relationship of spirituality to the academic life of a university could never be more at odds.
